Could not open a TCP/IP Socket.

Could not open a TCP/IP Socket.

Could not open a TCP/IP Socket.

I have a system which gives me the following Error message after connectin to my network.
"Could not initialize communication profile: TCP/IP.
Could not open a TCP/IP socket."

I have not been able to clear this error and gain access to the internet over the LAN.  The settings seem to be correct and I have quite a few other systems operating successfully using a DHCP server for IP addresses.


RE: Could not open a TCP/IP Socket.
