Warning: fsockopen(): SSL: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

Hello,

 

We have built a Drupal site running on IIS 7 on Windows 2008 R2. When we submit a request to create a Payment Profile to Authorize.net it usually goes through beautifully. However sometimes we receive this error "Warning: fsockopen(): SSL: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. in send_request_via_fsockopen()" We can't duplicate the error at will. It's random. I know we are using the test url for Authorize.net to test. Is this an issue in our code, our server setup or Authorize.net? Any feekback would be great. Thanks!

That probably means the Authorize.net test server is receiving too many hits and is killing some of the spill-over connections.
