Winsock Errors are Microsoft Windows Sockets (TCP) errors, not VNC® errors, and are not directly related to VNC software.

This specific Winsock error implies some type of Name Resolution issue within the network environment.


VNC software does not directly perform any type of Name Resolution, it simply asks the Operating System to perform all Name Resolution, and this error is being returned by the Operating System to the software. Therefore, if you're entering the computer's name (its hostname or fully qualified domain name), try using the IP address instead. This should resolve the issue in most cases.
