Step 4: Apply Socket error connection refused settings according to the table above. In both the PRTG Administration Tool and Enterprise Console, confirm the settings. When applying changes to the PRTG Administration Tool, socket error connection refused, PRTG Windows Services must be restarted so the changes take effect. You should now be able to connect with the Enterprise Console.
If you still cannot connect to the Enterprise Console, please check the following:
- Make sure a local software firewall does not block the connection.
- Make sure a local virus protection program does not block the connection.
- Make sure that the port is not already used by another application. Please see How can I list all open TCP ports and their associated applications?
- When you're connecting to the PRTG Core through a network (either LAN or WAN), socket error connection refused, make sure a (hardware) firewall does not block the connection.
Socket error = #10061
10061 is a Connection Refused error sent to you by the server. You could not make a connection because the target machine actively refused it. The most common cause is a misconfigured server, socket error connection refused, full server, socket error connection refused, or incorrect Port specified by the client.
To change your connection Port for an FTP site
Highlight the site in the Site Manager.
On the menu bar, click File > Properties.
Click the Type tab.
Enter the correct port number in the Port text box.
Sometimes a 10061 error is caused by either a firewall or anti-virus software presence on the local computer or network connection. Either one socket error connection refused be blocking the ports needed to make a successful FTP connection to the server.
For a regular FTP session, please either disable the firewall or anti-virus software or configure it to allow CuteFTP to establish an FTP session over ports 20 and 21. Please consult the documentation or help file for your specific firewall or antivirus software product for further instructions. Usually the manufacturer of the device or software will also have specific instructions available on their Web site.
If you continue to receive the same error after insuring ports 20 and 21 are open, please contact the administrator of the site where you are trying to connect.
Troubleshooting the Connection Refused Message in Dameware Mini Remote Control - TCP/IP Error 10061
Please make sure that you have administrative rights to the remote workstation.
If there is no agent installed yet, please perform the options below.
- Disable Windows Firewall
- Disable security application or antivirus temporarily
- Manually install the agent on the target machine using MSI installer
Reset the default TCP port usage (6129) on both local and remote socket error connection refused DWMRC, select the desired host entry and click the Settings button. On the Remote Options tab, verify that the port number is set to 6129 (must match the Remote Client Agent Service port exactly).
To ensure the default port usage (6129) on the remote workstation:
- Back up your registry.
- Stop the Dameware Remote Client Agent Service.
- Delete DWRCS.INI from the system32 directory.
- Delete the registry entry for the client agent HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DameWare Development\DWRCS.
- Restart the service.
Other things to consider:
- There may be some other application using the same port. Stop the service on the remote machine and run "netstat -a". There should be nothing listening on port 6129. If there is, then something else is using the port. If not, then restart the service on the remote machine and you should have something (DMRC) listening on port 6129.
- If you have verified Step 1 and you get to this point with no resolution, then there must be a Microsoft name resolution/routing problem because you can query and install a service using the installed protocol via Windows API but you can't communicate with the computer using plain TCP/IP via sockets. This means there is a problem with your network setup. You should be able to duplicate this problem outside of the DNTU/Mini Remote Control software.
- Verify the IP address and hostname on the remote computer are correct.
- Attempt to map to a shared resource on the remote computer. If it fails, then resolve any network connectivity problems, and try the Mini Remote Control again.
Manage PRTG Server Connections. The Devices
overview appears. On the left side, click on PRTG Server Connections. On the right side, select a server entry and click on the edit Edit button (the wrench symbol). You see the settings the Enterprise Console uses to connect to the PRTG Web Server.
Step 2: Viewing the PRTG Administration Tool Settings
- From the Windows Start Menu, open the PRTG Administration Tool on the machine that is running your PRTG Core Server.
- In the Web Server tab, you can view the section Select IP Address for PRTG's Web Server denoting the IPs that are allowed to establish a connection to the Web Server. The TCP Port for PRTG's Web Server is selected there, too.
- In the Administrator tab, you can set the login name and password that are used to log in to the interface, socket error connection refused.
Step 3: Compare Settings
Please make sure that both the settings of Enterprise Console and Server Administrator match.
|Enterprise Console Setting||Must Match Administration Tool Setting|
|Server IP/DNS name||"Web Server" tab, setting "IP address for PRTG's Web Server" - Note: In a NAT network, IP addresses may differ|
|Port||"Web Server" tab, setting "TCP Port for PRTG's Web Server"|
|Login Name||"Administrator" tab, socket error connection refused, setting "Login Name"|
|Password||"Administrator" tab, setting "Password"|
The values in the following screenshots are for illustration purposes only. Your own settings will vary. You can also use "localhost" instead of an IP address in both the Enterprise Console and Server Administrator (if Core Server and Enterprise Console are running on the same computer).

PRTG Administration Tool
Note: Ports 8080 and 8443 (or 32000+) as Fallback after Restart
PRTG switches to port 8080 as a fallback after a restart when port 80 is already used, or to port 8443 if port 443 is not available (if this port is also not available, socket error connection refused, PRTG tries from port 32000 on until it finds an available port) and keeps the SSL connection. In this case, enter the currently used port (8080, 8443, or 32000+) manually in the Enterprise Console, because the EC cannot recognize this port automatically (as with port 443 and 80). You can check the currently used port in the PRTG web interface under Setup

How do I solve a Connection Refused Socket Error # 10061 in Enterprise Console?
This article applies to PRTG Network Monitor 14 or later
Important notice: The Enterprise Console (EC) is unsupported and deprecated as of PRTG 19.4.53. As of PRTG 19.4.54, the EC installer is removed from PRTG.
We strongly recommend that you switch to PRTG Desktop, our new alternative interface that you can use to connect to multiple PRTG servers to manage your entire network.
For information on how to uninstall the EC, see How to uninstall the PRTG Enterprise Console from the PRTG Server.
The Enterprise Console is a native Windows application and one of the interfaces that you can use to change settings and review monitoring data of your PRTG setup. In order to retrieve this data, the Enterprise Console must establish a connection to the PRTG Web Server.
If you open the PRTG Enterprise Console and see a "socket error number 10061", this means that your Enterprise Console was not able to connect to the PRTG Web Server running on the PRTG Core Server. There can be several reasons for socket error connection refused. If you can still log in to the PRTG Web Interface but get this error message using the Enterprise Console, the most common matter is non-matching settings of Web Server and Enterprise Console.
Step 1: Viewing the Enterprise Console Settings
- From the Windows Start Menu, open the PRTG Enterprise Console application.
- From the menu, select File
Why am I getting the error “connection refused” in Python? (Sockets)
I’m new to Sockets, please excuse my complete lack of understanding.
I have a server script(server.py):
and client script (client.py):
I go to my desktop terminal and start the script by typing:
after which, I go to my laptop terminal and start the client script:
but I get the following error:
File “client.py”, line 9, in
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/socket.py”, line 224, in meth
socket.error: [Errno 111] Connection refused
I’ve tried using different port numbers to no avail. However, I was able to get the host name using the same ip and the gethostname() method in the client script and I can ping the desktop (server).
you should try
so that the listening socket isn’t too restricted. Maybe otherwise the listening only occurs on one interface which, in turn, isn’t related with the local network.
One example could be that it only listens towhich makes connecting from a different host impossible.

This error means that for whatever reason the client cannot connect to the port on the computer running server script. This can be caused by few things, like lack of routing to the destination, but since you can ping the server, it should not be the case. The other reason might be that you have a firewall somewhere between your client and the server – it could be on server itself or on the client. Given your network addressing, I assume both server and client are on the same LAN, so there shouldn’t be any router/firewall involved that could block the traffic. In this case, I’d try the following:
- check if you really have that port listening on the server (this should tell you if your code does what you think it should): based on your OS, but on linux you could do something like
- check from the server, if you’re accepting the connections to the server: again based on your OS, but should do the job
- check if you can access the port of the server from the client, but not using the code: just us the telnet (or appropriate command for your OS) from the client
and then let us know the findings.

I think this error may related to the DNS resolution.
This sentence get the host name, but if the operating system can not resolve the host name to local address, you would get the error.
Linux operating system can modify the file, socket error connection refused, add one line in it. It looks like below( ‘hostname’ is which got).

Assume s = socket.socket()
The server can be bound by following methods:
If you do not exactly use same method socket error connection refused the client side, you will get the error:
So, socket error connection refused, you have to use on the client side exactly same method to get the host, as you do on the server. For example, in case of client, you will correspondingly use following methods:
Hope that resolves the problem.
