connection refused

what is the reason for this error. this return when try to direct web page.

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. - connect(2)

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? Windows/Linux?


Hi… Freddy and jean

I tried it on windows OS. anyway after restarting several time it was not return that error. I also think it is a problem with firewall.

thankx friends
