    This error means your request is not able to connect web method of your web services which hosted on other machine.

    so you can check the request timeout of your web services most of the time if the time is very less and request didn't receive any request on time than this error message comes.

    Regards & thanks

    Hello Han,

    Does it allow Remote Connections?

    Is it listening on port 8172?

    You can verify those settings using the Management Service feature using IIS Manager in those machines.

    Hi Nirav Lalan,

    Could you please give me more details about it?

    I use port 80 for this WS, and i don't know how to allow remote connections and verify settings using Management Service.

    Hello Han,

    Go to the Management Service page in IIS Manager and enable Remote Connections.

    Use Webclient Class and Pull the data from the url. Instead of Webservice It is the easiest way to do it. If you want reference please refer to the below Url..
