Hello there,

This error indicates a shortage of resources on your system. It can occur when you try to run too many applications simultaneously on your computer. An operation on a socket or pipe was not performed because the system lacked sufficient buffer space to buffer connection throughput or a queue was full. WinSock was unable to allocate additional memory to accommodate the function request. If this error tends to occur when you run certain applications, it might indicate that the applications do not properly return system resources (for example, memory). It might also indicate that you are not closing the applications correctly.

Close unnecessary applications. If you continue to get this message, close Windows 2000 and restart your computer. Also, verify that buffer space is adjusted for the server. For the Firewall service, check the server registry entries for User Datagram Protocol (UDP) or Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) buffer size and consider increasing these values.

Hope this helps
