A socket is a communication end-point unique to a machine communicating on an Internet Protocol-based network, such as the Internet.

So you know what a socket is...

Forcefully rejected, eh? Not 100% sure, but sounds like a banned IP to me...

But if you've just bought the game, that makes no sense. Do you play/have played any other games by Blizzard?

....or a more logical question. Are you running a firewall that is 'forcefully rejecting' any connection between you and your host?
