an attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions

    Question

  • Hello, I have the same issue with Windows 7 laptop. unable to connect to the network and if I try ipconfig/renew I receive error 

     

    an attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions

    Any idea on whats wrong? I have tried netsh winsock reset, uninstalling the wireless adapter from device manager and reinstalling the drivers but no changes. same error. it started after my laptop installed automatic windows update last night.

    Windows built in Restore utility is a crap and doesn't work.. it fails I tried it twice as well.

  • Hi,

     

    Per my knowledge, the symptom could occur if the replication service tries to use the ports that occupied by others, or by a malfunction NIC. Please try the following steps:

     

    1.       Restart the windows firewall service

    2.       Reboot the problematic machine

    3.       Restart the “TCP/IP stack”.  Run CMD as administrator, type “netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt” to reset TCP/IP.

    4.       Try to temporarily disable antivirus.

     

    I wonder if you could provide the model of the laptop and wireless adapter.

    It will help us move more quickly toward a solution if you could collect the information now.

     

    Hope that helps
