ID #1034

Connection refused by target machine

Error no longer present in DC++ clients after 0.68

This usually means that there is no hub running on the machine you're trying to connect to. If you got the address from a hub list, try again later as it might have temporarily been taken down (or it's under heavy load and can't handle your connection at the moment).

This message can also occur when a firewall is blocking DC++. If you are running a software firewall, delete the rule for DC++ and have it recreate it. If that does not work, uninstall the firewall and try again (in many cases, simply disabling the firewall will not work).

If you are still unable to connect to any hub in the public list, then your only option is to try the suggestions in this FAQ.
