Not everyone can use that port so those who cannot will get that error. Have you tried this thread?

Some firewal issue I guess.

there is not a firewall on my computer.

Is that including Windows Firewall? I had to disable the windows firewall service to stop it re-enabling itself (stupid thing).

as soon as i disabled the windows firewall/ICS service i could use http://cowans.frih.net:2222 thank you for all the help.

That's interesting. Now I finally have an answer/solution for people with the same problem, and it seems to happen quite a lot. Very Happy

i have two computers both running win xp pro. the one started working when i disabled the service but the other one had no change. i am clueless.

peer guardian 2 had this host/port number blocked. you have to specificly allow it in the list. i guess that it would be a type of firewall (completely sliped my mind) but that is the cause for me and probably a lot of other people. hope this helps others.
