Topic: Constant Disconnection with TCP Socket

I was wondering if there is any way to test for the cause of a disconnection?

Such as if it was the host or the client side
If it was Internet related.
If it was a socket malfunction

My Clients are constantly reporting disconnect problems.

Ive ruled out the Host as the problem. A client will be connected to the host for aprox 2 hours sending small amounts of information back and forth. The client may disconnect sometimes 30 or 45 minutes later unexpectedly. It varies. There is no code telling the client to close the connection.
I have written a "Reconnect" routine that will try to reconnect to the same Host when disconnected but it fails to reconnect.

Most are using Windows 7 and above.
Is the OS the cause?
Will 2.10.2 help fix this?
What settings can i sign that may assure a strong or better connection?
Any help or direction would be appreciated.

For now I'm stuck using VB6 and Active X but have plans to rewrite my entire application in .Net
