What exactly are Socket Errors 10054

I need to find out more about 10054 errors. Every so often my program freeze and logs and error of 10054. Specifically, I need to know:

1. What is a 10054 error. I can see from searching the internet that they are 'Connection Reset by Peer', but what does that mean ?

2. Is there any way of keeping track of them?

3. How can I reproduce them here on my development machine ?

4. How can I correct them ?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but I have been doing a lot of thinking.

An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. This normally results if the peer application on the remote host is suddenly stopped, the host is rebooted, the host or remote network interface is disabled, or the remote host uses a hard close.

This error may also result if a connection was broken due to keep-alive activity detecting a failure while one or more operations are in progress
