It simply means thats u are not able to make a socket connection with the server. There can be many reasons
1.The server is down.
2. You can be behind a firewall. In that case disable your proxy server or use the Proxy class of JDK 5 to bypass the proxy. Ask ur system administrator what type of proxy u guys are using..whether its a HTTP Proxy/ HTTPS proxy(SSL) or SOCKS
version 4/5 proxy. JDK 5.0 provides support for all of them.
3. Try to ping the server. That would give u some idea.
