Smile Unexpected socket error: 10013 [Solved]

After upgrading from SecureCRT 7.2.1 to 7.2.3 under Windows 8.1 Update and Norton Internet Security, I was getting the error "Unexpected socket error: 10013" when attempting to connect to a remote host.

Inspired by the discussion at https://forums.vandyke.com/showthread.php?t=11256, I tried the following fix, which worked:

Under Norton Internet Security > Settings > Network > Smart Firewall > Program Rules > Configure, change the entry for SecureCRT Application from "Auto" to "Allow" and click Apply.

Hello briank,

Thanks for posting an update.

Since these two posts deal with different error codes, but similar issues, I will make a note in the other thread to direct people to this info also.

This link is a resource from Microsoft that documents these error codes (10013 and 10093).
