Questions:

I have searched a lot for this exception, which rarelly occur, but I didn’t find any relevant answer which can solve my problem,
I am using HttpURLConnection to get response as a xml from a url, it works fine but sometimes i get this exception:
java.net.SocketException: recvfrom failed: ECONNRESET (Connection reset by peer),
I have used following code and url1 is my url which gives a xml.

url=new URL(url1);
urlConnection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
urlConnection.setDoInput(true);  
urlConnection.connect();
InputStream in = new BufferedInputStream(urlConnection.getInputStream());
BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
String result, line = reader.readLine();
result = line;
           while((line=reader.readLine())!=null)
                       {
               result+=line;
           }

           System.out.println("Result: "+result);
How to&Answers:

Try put urlConnection.setRequestProperty(“connection”, “close”); before connecting. This will disable keep-alive property which is on by default

Answer:

I had a similar problem when trying to talk with my server. I’m still not sure what happened, but I found this in my search to resolve the issue:

ok, the answer was that it’s the server’s fault – it had to close the
connection after each request . it might be that android keeps a pool
of connections and use the old one or something like that . anyway ,
now it works.

After reading this post, I killed the apache instance running on my server, let the phone see that the connection was refused, and restarted apache. After that, the issue disappeared. Hope this helps!

Answer:

In my case i changed from http to https and everything became normal

Answer:

open your browser you are using and try copying the urland paste it into your browser of your MOBILE DEVICE , if you still get the same error or may be connection refused that means your MOBILE and YOUR PC on which server runs are not on the same plan.
