A discard service is running on the remote host.

typically sets up a listening socket and will ignore all the data
which it receives.
This service is unused these days, so it is advised that you disable
- Under Unix systems, comment out the 'discard' line in /etc/inetd.conf
and restart the inetd process
- Under Windows systems, set the following registry key to 0 :
Then launch cmd.exe and type :
net stop simptcp
net start simptcp
To restart the service.
