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

Problem

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

HRESULT error: 0x8007274c
Winsock error: WSAETIMEDOUT (10060)

Cause

This basically means that no response (either positive or negative) was received from the remote host when the TCP connection attempt took place.
One reason this may happen is because a firewall is blocking the response from the server.
Another reason is that the host name is incorrect.
This could also mean there is a (temporary) problem with the server (or some router along the way). You can try a traceroute to determine whether or not this is true.

Solution

  • Make sure that the host name is correct
  • Unblock SmartFTP in the software firewall and antivirus product
  • Check if there is a temporary problem with the server
