Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

Connection timed out


This error occurs either when the destination host is down or when problems in the network cause a loss in transmission.


Do the following:

  1. Check the operation of the host system, for example by using ping(1M) and ftp(1).

  2. Repair or reboot as necessary.

  3. If the above does not solve the problem, check the network cabling and connections.

Technical Notes

No connection was established in a specified time. A connect or send request failed because the destination host did not properly respond after a reasonable interval. (The time-out period is dependent on the communication protocol.)

The symbolic name for this error is ETIMEDOUT, errno=145.
