Do you know about the causes of Network error (tcp_error)?

TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a protocol that is used along with Internet Protocol to send messages in the form of units between computers over Internet. It is just a connection oriented protocol that means it is maintained till the exchange of data is completed. TCP is client/server model of communication in which the computer (client) requests for service and another computer (server) does service of the request. Any problem that exits between this communication results in Network error (tcp_error). Error can also occur when you try to ping an IP address with Ping utility. Any compliant with the server may also be a reason for the error. The communication between the client and server can also be interrupted if there is compliant with hardware devices present between client and server.

This issue mainly occurs while sending request to the server. Data can be exchanged through Internet only by using this TCP (Transmission Control Protocol). When TCP exchange takes between the browser and the server, then this error occurs. It is due to presence of some trouble in the exchange. As a result, you can not do any further operations using Internet. You can continue the exchange only after fixing the issue.

Tips to fix

Initially you need to make sure whether your browser is working or not. You can test it by trying to use other websites. If you are not able to access other websites also, then there is problem with browser and so you need to reinstall TCP/IP. If all other websites are working properly then the fault might be with the hardware and so you can fix the issue by replacing the fault hardware.

Things to remember

You need to have a network client installed otherwise you will receive this error message. Problem can also occur when you interrupt the uninstall process of Winsock so you need to be sure that you do not disturb any uninstall process. Sometimes, this error may also occur when the server is busy. So, in such cases, you can try using the server after sometime.
