Hi, This looks like a network problem communicating with the server. Can you confirm if you can successfully ping the server? Just open a command prompt and execute the ping command 'ping'. If successful you should see replies like below...

ping PING ( 56 data bytes 64 bytes from icmpseq=0 ttl=45 time=122.380 ms 64 bytes from icmpseq=1 ttl=45 time=122.543 ms 64 bytes from icmpseq=2 ttl=45 time=121.947 ms 64 bytes from icmpseq=3 ttl=45 time=123.244 ms
