SocketException Connection reset on windows 7

While trying to recreate a development environment for a Java Web application on my new laptop with Windows 7, I encountered the dreaded SocketException Connection reset exceptions.

I spent hours overlooking my configuration for the application ensuring that everything was the same as my existing development environment at work but I couldn't find any reasons for the error.

After much investigation and research, I stumbled upon an article where somebody else had experienced similar problems on the Windows 7 OS here:


This gave me the idea that I should probably try disabling support for IPV6

After disabling it, I no longer encountered the errors!!

I must admit, so far using windows 7 hasn't had many issues until now. But this has caused me much grief and I'm just relieved to have finally worked it out.
