Definition: The network connection refused error appears when a Web site is experiencing a lot of unexpected traffic, is under maintenance, or if the Web site is accessible for registered users only (must supply a username and/or password).

How to deal with a network connection refused error: Usually, this situation is temporary. Try refreshing your Web browser or visiting the site later. Also, check that the URL is typed correctly into the Web browser address bar.

Also Known As: "network connection refused by the server", "network connection timed out"
