SocketException Connection Timed out and Connection Reset

Please consider this as a naive/stupid question from a Greenhorn.

I have a Axis2 client (implented in java) and I am connecting to a server which is most probably an IIS server.


a) What happens if I receive a ConnectionTimed as SocketException ? Can I consider we are not able to contact the server because it is down !
b) What happens if I receive a Connection Reset as SocketException? Can I consider that server is up and we perhaps had a network interruption or other Server problems? What may be the other server problems.

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
