A socket error can occur if there is a problem with the user’s computer or server while making the connection.
Socket errors manifest when something keeps the socket from connecting. The socket error can either come from the user’s computer or from the server.
- The most common cause of a socket error on the client side is a firewall blocking the socket or having the network connection drop/disconnect.
- Common reasons for socket errors on server side are that the server is down, disconnected, or overloaded with connection requests. In this instance, it may be useful to contact the server administrator.
Until the connection or server problem is corrected, the socket error will continue to appear.
