Question/Problem: Connection reset by peer.

Answer/Solution: A connection was forcibly closed by a peer. This normally results from a loss of the connection on the remote socket due to a timeout or a reboot.

User suggestions: Some network systems have commands to report statistics. In this case, it might be possible to check the count of TCP RST packets received, or ICMP Port Unreachable packets. See other suggestions under WSAECONNABORTED.
