ERROR_INTERNET_CONNECTION_RESET with local connections RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use HttpSendRequest et al to request a file from my server via http. The client receives the error ERROR_INTERNET_CONNECTION_RESET after calling InternetReadFile several times, but before the end of the file is reached.


    The problem is, I do not understand why this error occurs, because:

    • Client on my dev-machine, server on my dev-machine: working
    • Client on my dev-machine, server on other-machine: working
    • Client on other-machine, server on my dev-mach: working
    • Client on other-machine AND server on other-machine: error

    Tried to catch the TCP traffic with etherreal: no success as etherreal captures traffic passing the NIC only. But the problem arises solely when client and server on the same other-machine: the traffic is local inside the machine.


    dev-machine and other-machine: WinXP SP2
