"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try to connect to the port. You could copy this code http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.net/CreateClientSocket.html then read from it like this http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.net/ReadFromSocket.html?l=rel

Also, check your firewall settings.
