    My blogs wp-admin turns "could not open socket" error by using Login reCAPTCHA plugin. I can't login into site backend and the comment form also turns the same issue. I have a contact with my web service provider, and checked the 'fsockopen' . But they replied me that 'The problem is with the plugin itself. Please use the latest version of that plugin'. But I'm using the latest version of wordpress 3.2.1 and plugin 0.1.4. Can anyone help me.? Its worked fine for the last three months. Thanks in advance.

    Please provide any additional information below in wp re-captcha plugin:

    // To fix the problem, find line 40 in recpatchalib.php and replace:
    define("RECAPTCHA_VERIFY_SERVER", "www.google.com");

    // With this:
    define("RECAPTCHA_VERIFY_SERVER", gethostbyname("www.google.com"));
