A 10060 error is usually caused by loss of connection.  Flaky wireless, bad cable, intermittent network card or similar.

I was simply trying to load the Name: FTP Server: UserID: and Password: to create the new account.  I put the IP in both the Name: and FTP Server: blocks and the UserID: and Password: blocks were simple to load.  Then got the error code.  Then I went back and to the old connection and cut and pasted the IP into both as well as cut and paste the UserID and Password.  It worked.  I suspect the cut/paste may have had something to do with it.  I would like to know what is correct to load in the "Name:" and "FTP Server:" blocks.  The IP in both or the URL and IP respectively? Thanks.
