It's a network communication error. A socket is an endpoint for network communication.

Need more info to say what the actual problem is. How about telling us where the error came from? What app? What was he doing at the time? What was he trying to do? What was the exact error? etc... What you told us is like saying that your car is broke. Not very useful.

Don't get pissed at him, you should expect such answers ewhen you post in the wrong forum!


I did not get pissed, I just thought it was a very lame post.

Just like yours, also why should I expect answers like that he was not trying to help


If you cant help, there is no need to reply
