Winsock error 10060

WSAETIMEDOUT  -  Connection timed out.

Basic (Microsoft) information for 10060 a.k.a. WSAETIMEDOUT

A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or the established connection failed because the connected host has failed to respond.

Detailed (Berkeley) information for winsock 10060, described as "Connection timed out."

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

WinSock description: Same as Berkeley, but less. This error is relevant to, but not to or sendto() as it is in Berkeley Sockets.

User suggestions: Check the obvious first: 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's possible you resolved to an obsolete address. Can you ping that 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)? Try a traceroute to the destination address to check that all the routers are functioning.

Check your subnet mask. If you don't have the proper subnet mask, your network system may 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 visa versa.
