"Connection Timed out" error

“Connection timed out” is a generic error that most network software can experience. It indicates that a connect was attempted between two pieces of software across a network connection and the connection didn’t complete in time. The default timeout is usually set to 255 seconds. If the two sides do not establish a proper connection in that time, this error is generated.

What to check:

  • Is the remote software up and running
  • Can the remote IP be accessed from the source device. ( Can you ping it or telnet to the port on the IP)
