    This could be from a variety of reasons. You'll need to check your settings thoroughly - make sure the IP & port is correct, make sure there is no firewall blocking the connection either from your server, your router, your hosting provider/ISP, etc.

    Pro tip: Use Google to check to see if your port is open while your server is running. That will help you narrow down the problem.
