When trying to connect to my Perforce Server, the following exception occurs:

Perforce client error: Connect to server failed; check $P4PORT.
TCP connect to failed. connect: WSAETIMEDOUT


Your Perforce server is slow to respond and has timed out.


Check that you can access it remotely from the command-line using p4. Ensure that the port that your Perforce server is running on is not blocked by your firewall or anti-virus software.

Search the Perforce troubleshooting documentation for the error code WSAETIMEDOUT for more possible solutions.
