    This error means either one of two things:
    1 There is no server listening to that port on the host PC.
    2 The firewall blocks that port.
    Solutions:
    1 Make sure the appropiate server is running on the host.
    2 Make sure the firewall allows incoming traffic through that port.
  • How can I check all those things?

    :
    1: Depends on which port. I'm not going to list which server uses one of the 65536 available ports. See www.google.com for that.
    2: Read the help files/manual/documentation that comes with your firewall. I cannot describe the procedure for each and every firewall in existance.
