I am getting a "timed out" error when I try to connect a client to a server. I can ping the server OK. I'm not a TCP/IP guy and "ping" is pushing the limits of my system knowledge. Any suggestions? (besides looking into a different career)

If you can ping the server, this doesn't mean that you can also connect to it via tcp/ip. Here's a good tutorial that can help you in tcp-ip: http://www.w3schools.com/tcpip/default.asp[^]

How are you trying to connect? can be related to windows security (or Unix), can be related to missing or extra lines in your code, database security, you name it... can you explain more please, even better will be if you post your code that you use trying to connect
