Winsock Error -10 on a windows Client

(imported topic written by gcibirch91)


I have install the client on a windows Machine but when I check the logs I get the above winsock error and the entry in the log below:

At 14:17:11 +0530 - actionsite (

Failed downloading ‘’ as ‘__TempUpdateFilename’

FAILED to Synchronize - General transport failure. - winsock error -10 - gather url -

At 14:17:12 +0530 -

Processing action site.

How do I fix this issue? I can ping the servers FQN but cannot ping the website. If I open a browser I can connect to the site no problem.

Any ideas what causes this?

Did you happen to check this post?

Try restarting the agent.

Yep saw that article. Also restarted the machine. However, I check the system last night and the machine was online.
