Error binding to UDP port (10055)

Windows Users,
We still get the following error from time to time:
"Error binding to UDP port (10055)"

This means, according to the Winsock help file:
"The Windows Sockets implementation reports a buffer deadlock"

I've looked at a couple of configurations and can't tell remotely what's
going wrong, since some people with seemingly similar setups work OK.

If anyone has solved this problem in the past PLEASE let us know.

Great software! Program works fine from office - attempted to try from home

Environment at home:
Gateway 2000 486dx266 w/16meg, Workgroups for Windows 3.11
Wollongong Pathway TCP/IP stack and winsock.dll
PPP connection.

(Office setup also uses Wollongong Pathway stack and winsock.dll - works

Program wouldn't start giving "Gethostbyname failed() (11001)"
or sometimes "Error binding to UDP port (10055)"

The PPP connection assigns a ip address when connecting - I obtained the
address using (stat) and added to the "HOSTS" file. Still gives above
mentioned errors.

Any suggestions?
