Network Error:Software connection abort error

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I am requesting help for one of my applications named PuTTY. I have the application installed on Windows Vista Ultimate laptop. I am trying to access my iPhone using Winscp with a USB cable.

I have been able to establish the connection successfully, without any error message before. I have worked and transferred applications but today, when I try to establish a connection I get the following error message.


Network error:  Software caused connection abort.

Not sure why this error message pops up. After this my connection was no more.

I have turned off Firewall but still the same. Any help is appreciated.

This particular problem may appear once the local network method aborts an association, including when WinSock ends an existing relationship following info retransmission fails (recipient by no means appreciates information dispatched on the info stream socket.  Possibly due to a data transmission timeout or even protocol error.

Check the iPhone’s USB cable if it is not broken, faulty or something. Try uninstalling then reinstalling the application that iPhone uses when connecting it to the computer. This will restore the application’s configuration back to factory setting. If this procedure didn’t help, try checking your computer for any possible errors it might have. Use a disk utility application to check the system. If you don’t have one installed on your desktop, try using Windows disk check.

  1. Right-click drive C then select Properties.
  2. Click Tools tab.
  3. Click Check Now.
  4. Check Automatically fix file system errors then click Start.

For a much thorough diagnostics on the system, use a disk utility application like Norton Utilities, Norton SystemWorks, or PC Tools Performance Toolkit, instead of using Windows disk check.
