Error Message:

WINSOCK Error: Connection timed out.


A connect or send request failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time. (The time-out period is dependent on the communication protocol.)

User Action:

Check that the destination address is a valid IP address. If you used a hostname, did it resolve to the correct address? If the hostname resolution uses a local host table, it is possible you resolved to an obsolete address. Try to ping the hostname. Do you have a router configured? Is the router up and running (check by pinging it, and then ping an address on the other side of it)? Use the tracert command at the command prompt to determine the path to the destination address and to check that all the routers are functioning. Check your subnet mask. If you don't have the correct subnet mask, your network system might treat a local address as a remote address (so it forwards addresses on the local subnet to the router, rather than broadcasting an ARP request locally), or vice versa.
