Socket error code

socket error code

Socket Error 10060 is basically a connection time-out error. This error occurs while connecting to the Internet and the client using the proxy system or on. Winsock Error Codes ; 10054, WSAECONNRESET, Connection reset by peer ; 10055, WSAENOBUFS, No buffer space available ; 10056, WSAEISCONN, Socket is already. Socket errors 10060, 10061, 10064, 10065. An socket error the 10060 range is a Winsock error generally caused by either outgoing connection problems or. socket error code Type tab.

  • Verify that the problem is not local by trying to connect to an alternate server.

  • If a server name was used, verify it resolves to the correct address.

  • If using a local server table for server name resolution, check to see that it doesn't resolve to an obsolete address.

  • Try pinging the address.

  • If you are using a router, verify the router is up and running (check by pinging it and then ping an address outside of the router).

  • Do a traceroute to the destination to verify all routers along the connection path are operational.

  • Verify that your subnet mask is setup properly.


    for error WSAECONNREFUSED (10061)

    1. The remote host actively refused the attempt to connect to it.

    2. Verify that the destination server name or IP address is correct

    3. Verify that the connection port number is correct (under Site Settings

      Error Codes

      The ERRNO values below are set when API calls fail. Use xn_getlasterror to retrieve the error code after an API call fails. Function xn_geterror_string) can be used to retrieve the string name of a particular error code.

      All errno values are defined in header file Rtipapi.h.

      EADDRINUSE (100)

      Another socket is already bound to the address specified in bind. Make sure closesocket or xn_abort was called on the other socket bound to the same address. Note that closesocket can take a few minutes to release the socket. You can use socket option SO_REUSEADDR (see setsockopt) to avoid this error.


      Endpoint address not available. This error occurs when a match for the requested address is not found in the routing table. Entries are added to the routing table by xn_set_ip and xn_rt_add.

Check that the application calls xn_abort or closesocket after a socket is no longer needed. For TCP, socket error code, make sure all the data in the input window has been read before the socket is closed.

      ENOTSOCK (128)

      Invalid socket descriptor. An invalid socket descriptor was passed to an API function. The socket descriptor returned by calls to socket or accept needs to be passed to bind/connect/send, etc.

    4. Switch to the opposite data connection type (PASV or PORT) under Site Settings FORMAT_MESSAGE_IGNORE_INSERTS, socket error code, 0, WSAGetLastError(), 0, message, 256, socket error code, 0); char *nl = strrchr(message, '\n'); if (nl) *nl = 0; return message; #else return strerror(errno); #endif }

      Notice the use of in the Windows section of the code above, socket error code. This is to remove the trailing newline character that Windows includes in error messages. That way the function will return messages without a trailing newline, regardless of whether it's being run on Windows or an Unix-like platform.

      You can use the function as follows:

      socket(0, 0, 0); //definitely causes an error! printf("Last error was: %s\n", get_error_text());

      If you run that code on Linux you might see something like this:

      screenshot showing socket programming error message on Linux

      The same error message on Windows may display as:

      screenshot showing socket programming error message on Windows

      Each operating system will use different error codes and messages, but at least we have portable code to retrieve the last error code and message in a cross-platform way.
