Unable to create TCP Socket

Now I am pretty sure that this is not a problem with squid but it is squid that is returning this error to the client machine.

Any ideas? I have looked through the archives and I can find no reference to this particular problem.

The requested URL could not be retrieved
While trying to retrieve the URL: <any url>
The following error was encountered:
Socket Failure
The system returned:
    (99) Cannot assign requested address
Squid is unable to create a TCP socket, presumably due to excessive load. Please retry your request.

The cache log is showing an attempt to connect to <Url>:0 and yes I can ping the loopback interface.
