There are many possible reasons for this problem. To solve the error try these methods:

  1. Change the settings of the proxy server. Make sure that you are not using a proxy server:
  • Go to ‘Internet Options’ in the ‘Control Panel.’
  • A new tab opens, click on ‘Connections.’
  • In the Connections, select ‘LAN Settings’ option.
  • In the opened window, uncheck the box corresponding to ‘Use a Proxy Server for your LAN.’
  • After this, press ‘Ok’ button.

2.  To reset the IP, follow the steps:

  • In the Start Window, type command prompt.
  • Now open the ‘Command Prompt’ in ‘Run as Administrator’ mode by right-clicking on it.
  • The command prompt will open. Now enter the following command: ‘netsh winsock reset catalog’ and then press ‘Enter.’
  • After this restart your PC and check if the error is solved.

3.  You can also disable the Windows firewall settings. Many a times error is because    firewall has blocked it.

4.   Many errors get resolved by cleaning the Windows Registry.

That error also gave me a headache and there seems to be no permanent solution to that only temporary. I always encounter that error on very busy, high traffic website. Though the solution is not permanent, it normally fixes the problem but will reoccur after some time. Click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories,” and then “Command Prompt.”

In the command prompt window, type the following commands one after the other and then hit Enter after every command:

  • ipconfig /release
  • ipconfig /renew
  • ipconfig /flushdns

Note: the first two commands are intended for DHCP connections. If you are not using DHCP and you’re on static IP, they will not work. In this case, just run the last command then try refreshing the page. See if it works. Another possible remedy which reportedly worked for many users is to perform an IP reset. Launch an elevated command prompt.

Click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories,” then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator.” In the command prompt window, type without quotes “netsh winsock reset catalog” then hit Enter. Restart your computer and see if it works.
