What is connection reset by peer: socket write error and how to resolve it?

Hi Could you provide some more detail on this error, please? What is the full error message? Where are you seeing this message? (What is the source?) What behavior are you doing at the time? E.g. browsing through the proxied browser, performing an automated scan, etc

I am getting this error while performing automated scan for a particular website. The error is connection by peer:socket write error. And audit is getting paused by giving n error: Paused due to error: 11 consecutive audit items have failed. that is whatever request burp is sending they are not getting response.

Thank you for that information. Are you able to manually browse to the URL that is triggering the error? Does this occur for all websites you scan or just one in particular? You can configure how Burp handles errors during your audit by going to "New scan configuration > Auditing > Handling application errors during audit".

yes I am able to manually trigger the URL. It is for specific website only.

Is this happening for every page on the website or just one specific page? Could you provide me with your diagnostics information? You can find this at "Help > Diagnostics". If you would rather, you can email it to us at support@portswigger.net

Could you provide me with your diagnostics information? You can find this at "Help > Diagnostics". If you would rather, you can email it to us at support@portswigger.net The extension "Target Redirector" (https://portswigger.net/bappstore/d938ed20acbe4cd9889aa06bd23ba7e1) claims to help with websites that are protected by third-party DDoS protection/load balancers. Have you tried using that?
