Ah, this is NT4 SP6. Upgrade to SP6a to fix it.

Under SP6, Winsock2 is broken, so any user not in the local
Administrators group can't connect to any sockets. Mainly Lotus Notes
was affected, but it looks like we are also.

Subject: [INTERFACES] JDBC: can't connect in NT 4.0 SP 6 (JRE 1.2.2) as

I've encountered a subtle problem making a JDBC connection under NT 4.0
6 running JRE 1.2.2. If I'm logged on as Administrator, the code works
fine. Under Linux, it works fine, same JDBC (6.5.3) classes. If I'm
logged into NT as a user, I can't connect to the Postgres server, and I
this error on the client end:

The connection attempt failed because
setsockopt<> TCP_NODELAY (code=10055)

On the Postgres end I just get:

pq_recvbuf: unexpected EOF on client connection

This is frustrating the heck out of me! What's REALLY annoying is that
it's not consistent - I CAN connect using another box (at home) under NT

4.0 SP 6 JRE 1.2.2!! Any guesses as to what's going on?
