Forums: Index > Playing Freeciv > I cannot get Freeciv to run...?

On a Windows XP PC, running some version of Freeciv 2.0 (possibly the penultimate release), I can't get the game to start. I can start the Freeciv client or the server, but everytime I try to start a game or connect to a network game in the client, I get the message "lost connection to server!". If I run the client, I get a message about something like "setoptsock" failed. Is this the right place to post this? Is there anyway I can fix this?
