View Full Version : Socket error when connecting

3rd Dec 2008, 03:24 AM
Sometimes when trying to connect to a runtime server through the Internet a specific client machine simply won't connect, showing the following error message:

Networking failed
winsock: Socket failed 75606396

This error has happened with both an XP and a Vista machine. The firewall programs have been shutdown so that's not the cause. Also the user is administrator on the machine. Googling the socket failed shows that other people have had similar problems but none have solved this so far. Has anyone here seen this problem and managed to fix it?
