Hers is what the error code means

Address family not supported by protocol family.
An address incompatible with the requested protocol was used. All sockets are created with an associated address family (that is, AF_INET for Internet Protocols) and a generic protocol type (that is, SOCK_STREAM). This error is returned if an incorrect protocol is explicitly requested in the socket call, or if an address of the wrong family is used for a socket, for example, in sendto

Try this let me know if it works.

1.Rebuild the Winsock LSP chain. To do this, follow these steps:

a.Log on to the Microsoft Windows XP workstation as an administrator.

b.Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.

c.At the command prompt, type the following, and then press ENTER: netsh Winsock reset
When the program is finished, you will receive the following message: Successfully reset the Winsock Catalog. You must restart the machine in order to complete the reset.

If you receive this message, restart the computer.

If you are not logged in as an administrator, you will receive the following error message:Unable to reset the Winsock Catalog. Access is denied.

If you receive this message, log off the computer, and then log back on by using an account with Administrator access. Typically, the first user account that was created has Administrator access. Then, repeat steps 1b and 1c.
