Sockets problem >_<!!

P: 4
Hi everyone. I'm using a socket-based application (written in C++) for Windows platforms. Everything works fine when trying to connect in Administrator mode, but when in User mode no communication can be made...this is a dumb question but do I "need" specifically to be in Administrator mode or can I access this app with normal User rights? Please any comment will be greatly appreciated

My guess is that any administrator rights needed to perform a task are not available to a User.

Well the app just needs a "read" from the server to get some stock info -_-! or is it that the only fact of creating a socket (or actions after it like binding it or connecting to it) needs an Administrator permission just like in Unix (in this case being in root for example)? The app works fine in Administrator mode, but when it deals with a User rights mode it just doesn't do anything at all. >_<!!
