Hi xxmithila,

have you checked the firewall setting on the machine you are trying to
connect to?

Exactly what is it you are trying todo?

Is there a firewall?
Is the server running?
Can you see the port using netstat?
does wget/telnet or links work from the local server?

I tried it on windows OS. anyway after restarting several time it was
return that error. I also think it is a problem with firewall.
