No. On Windows, there is a separate set of error codes, winerror.h

If you google for "winerror 11001", you find quickly that it is
"host not found".

That will be very difficult to achieve, as Python is (deliberately)
not even consistent across systems. Instead, it reports what the
platform reports, so you should do the same in Java.
