What happens when she tries to connect to the same IP address out of  
a browser? Also, can you you have her use a Rev standalone to connect  
to some other URLs (e.g. http://www.yahoo.com, etc,) and see if the  
problem is limited to this address or others too.

Just to confirm, is the error literally "10049" or is there some  
other text such as "error on socket 10049"? Windows socket errors  
usually return a little bit more than just the number, so if that's  
all you're seeing, there might be something else going on.
