Error: "-27780: read to host failed:  Connection reset by peer"
If you are getting the following error messages during replay of a Web script:
"Error -27780: read to host <host name> failed:  Connection reset by peer"
"Error -27790: Failed to read data from server <host name>"
Diagnosis: The client sends a POST request to the server and gets a response with HTTP status 200, connection close and redirection using both JS code and meta-refresh. There is no content-length, so the client is supposed to decide when to close the connection. Internet Explorer closes the connection before sending the request to the redirection URL. But, LoadRunner does not; later the server closes the connection, and the result is the error message.
For the specific situation described herein, try adding the following step after the POST step:
This step closes all the open connections, and as a result, LoadRunner stops waiting for the rest of the response of the redirection.
NOTE: 10054 is a generic Microsoft network error — it is also possible for this error to be caused as a result of the application server being too heavily loaded, or due to a network/OS issue, or even due to an anti-virus/firewall on the server. See http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cause+10054
