Resolving the problem

-1 err_SOCKET_START Could not start the network socket libraries
-2 err_PROTOCOL Unknown protocol used for connection

-8 err_SOCKET_CONNECT The IP address of the TEM Server/TEM Relay is found, but the connection could not be established
-9 err_SOCKET_SEND A connection was made to the TEM Server/TEM Relay, but an error occurred when sending data
-10 err_SOCKET_RECEIVE A connection was made to the TEM Server/TEM Relay, but an error occurred when receiving data
-11 SSL event error An error when connection to the SSL server is occurring. Please check the communication via SSL either to the SSL server or from the SSL server communication is not being manipulated.
-12 SSL event error An error when connection to the SSL server is occurring. Please check the communication via SSL either to the SSL server or from the SSL server communication is not being manipulated.
