fatal: Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer

I get this error when I log in through console:
"fatal: Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer".

Can you tell me what this is and why it happens, and how to stop it? Thank you.

GETPEERNAME(2)						     Linux Programmer's Manual						    GETPEERNAME(2)

NAME
getpeername - get name of connected peer socket SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/socket.h> int getpeername(int sockfd, struct sockaddr *addr, socklen_t *addrlen); DESCRIPTION
getpeername() returns the address of the peer connected to the socket sockfd, in the buffer pointed to by addr. The addrlen argument should be initialized to indicate the amount of space pointed to by addr. On return it contains the actual size of the name returned (in bytes). The name is truncated if the buffer provided is too small. The returned address is truncated if the buffer provided is too small; in this case, addrlen will return a value greater than was supplied to the call. RETURN VALUE
On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately. ERRORS
EBADF The argument sockfd is not a valid descriptor. EFAULT The addr argument points to memory not in a valid part of the process address space. EINVAL addrlen is invalid (e.g., is negative). ENOBUFS Insufficient resources were available in the system to perform the operation. ENOTCONN The socket is not connected. ENOTSOCK The argument sockfd is a file, not a socket. CONFORMING TO
SVr4, 4.4BSD (the getpeername() function call first appeared in 4.2BSD), POSIX.1-2001. NOTES
The third argument of getpeername() is in reality an int * (and this is what 4.x BSD and libc4 and libc5 have). Some POSIX confusion resulted in the present socklen_t, also used by glibc. See also accept(2). For stream sockets, once a connect(2) has been performed, either socket can call getpeername() to obtain the address of the peer socket. On the other hand, datagram sockets are connectionless. Calling connect(2) on a datagram socket merely sets the peer address for outgoing datagrams sent with write(2) or recv(2). The caller of connect(2) can use getpeername() to obtain the peer address that it earlier set for the socket. However, the peer socket is unaware of this information, and calling getpeername() on the peer socket will return no useful information (unless a connect(2) call was also executed on the peer). Note also that the receiver of a datagram can obtain the address of the sender when using recvfrom(2). SEE ALSO
