Source: DNS

Symbolic Name: DNS_EVENT_CANNOT_CREATE_TCP_SOCKET
Message: The DNS server could not create a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) socket. Restart the DNS server or reboot the computer. For the specific error code, see the Record Data page.
   
Explanation

The Wsock32.dll might be incompatible with a third party TCP/IP stack. This problem can also occur if the TCP/IP protocol is not bound to the network adapter.

   
User Action

If you are using a third party TCP/IP protocol, verify that the protocol is compatible with the Wsock32.dll. Also, check the bindings of your protocol stack. It is a good idea to have TCP/IP bound at the top of the stack. If you continue to get this message, remove and reinstall the TCP/IP protocol, and then try again.

1. Open Control Panel, and then double-click Network and Dial-up Connections.
2. Right-click the connection, and then click Properties.
3. Verify that the bindings for all protocols to network adapters are enabled and that no broken connections exist in the stack.
