A Connection Attempt Failed Because The Connected Party…

When trying to view a title in Quickmap, you may get this error:

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

This happens because a firewall is blocking Quickmap’s access to over port 80. This can be due to a network firewall, internet firewall or local firewall on your PC, such as Windows Firewall or a firewall from an antivirus product.

To confirm that this is indeed a problem with the firewall and not Quickmap, you can use the following PowerShell cmdlet (:!: Note: This test requires Windows 8 with PowerShell 4.0 or above):

Test-NetConnection -Port 80

This will tell you if PowerShell can access the IP address over port 80. Specifically the cmdlet should return the following in it’s last line:

TcpTestSucceeded : True

If it doesn’t return True, then something is blocking access.
