socket error is what you receive if the connection is dropped, which is
usually down to being unable to connect or a source authentication
error. There are other cases like a stream already connected with that
mountpoint or a sources limit reached.

To check for a firewall blocking possibility, on the machine where ices
is, try getting the /status.xsl page, either with a normal browser or
with something like curl/wget.  If it's being blocked then they will
also fail to connect.

The auth case can be checked by looking in the error.log, you should see
a failed source connection. With that you have to make sure the auth
matches for it to work.
