Unable To Connect To The Remote Server - KB

How to check connection to the remote server, if the error " Unable to connect to the remote server" is obtained?

  • Ping to check if IP is getting redirected
  • Ask the local IT to check and fix the access to IP (machine is down, firewall is blocking traffic, etc) and add it in Host file
  • Ensure that the required port for the connection is open. This can be validated using the Test-NetConnection command with the help of instructions in Test - Net Connection link
  • If there is a proxy in between the servers, then ensure that it is configured to the client application as well.
