Why Can't I Connect? screenshot"Why Can't I Connect?" is a network diagnosis tool that makes it simpler to repair TCP/IP connection errors. Use it to diagnosticate connections to popular server types (MySQL Server, Microsoft SQL Server, FTP, SFTP, POP3, IMAP, SMTP, LDAP, IRC, Usenet) and create general TCP/IP clients and / or servers. Possibly a firewall is blocking the desired port, the port isn't listening, DNS isn't returning the wonted address, DHCP hasn't provided a local IP address, the WiFi login isn't complete. The program will step over the connection process, fixing all IP addresses, showing all sent and accepted messages in both ASCII and hexadecimal. Any problems will be reported with possible causes for the problem. It will discover the root cause of the problem but it will not, apart from unfinished WiFi and wired network logins, try to fix the connection. The program is aimed for users with some network knowledge or users who wish to be capable to offer technical information to a help desk.
