Solution

Resolve the error message by increasing the web connector and web component server timeout values in the registry. Refer to the solution listed below according to your exact version number of Crystal Enterprise.

To increase the timeout value for the Web Connector go to:
\HKEY LOCALMACHINE\Software\Seagate Software\8.0\Web Connector\Connector Timeout
Increase the value of this subkey to 1000000, or higher if needed.

To increase the timeout value for the Web Component Server go to:
\HKEY LOCALMACHINE\Software\Seagate Software\8.0\Web Component Server\Instances\Server name\Connection Timeout
Increase the value of this subkey to 1000000, or higher if needed.

Sorry about that.  I should've read it more closely.  Here's what an error code 3 means.

http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2010567.asp
3 = Communication Error; indicates that there is a communication issue between the Crystal Web Connector and the Crystal Web Component Server (WCS). A technical brief addressing how to resolve a Communication Error is available on the Crystal Decisions web site. It is called, "Crystal Enterprise: Troubleshooting a Communication Error".

You say you're unable to connect to the server.  What happens exactly?  Does it timeout, or give you some sort of error message?

When I try to start the report page I get:

Communication Error
Communication failed with all configured Web Component Servers because they are disabled or not currently running. If this problem continues, please contact the system administrator.

Have you used the Crystal Config Mgr to restart the services?

Did you try pinging the web component server to make sure you have good communication between them?

Is this a new installation or is this a sudden problem with a previously working install?

Yes I have used the CCM

All components are installed on the same machine

A problem just within the last few days on a server running for about 1.5 yrs

>>> A problem just within the last few days on a server running for about 1.5 yrs

Unfortunately this may boil down to figuring out what has changed on the server.  It sounds like something is shutting down or blocking the services so I suspect that new software was installed / updated that's causing the problem - knowing what it is will go a long way toward finding a resolution.

I assume since this is a web server that it's fully patched / virus-scanned / ad-scanned.

is Crystal Enterprise installed on the same machine as the web server, or are you accessing the Crystal Server via the Crystal Web Connector? If there is a firewall between the web server and the Crystal Server, you need TCP ports 6401 and 6399 open. Also, you need to modify the registry by adding -requestport 6399 to the following:

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\WebCompServer
ImagePath = "C:\Program Files\Seagate Software\WCS\WebCompServer.exe" -service -name [APSNAME] -ns [APSNAME] -requestport 6399

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Services\WebCompS2rver
ImagePath = "C:\Program Files\Seagate Software\WCS\WebCompServer.exe" -service -name [APSNAME] -ns [APSNAME] -requestport 6399

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebCompServer
ImagePath = "C:\Program Files\Seagate Software\WCS\WebCompServer.exe" -service -name [APSNAME] -ns [APSNAME] -requestport 6399

Something else that comes to mind: If you are using SQL database and the database server has moved, or usernames/passwords have changed, you need to change your system DSN to reflect the changes.
