vSphere Client 4.1 can not connect to ESXi 4.1

So I have a bit of a problem here.  I am unable to get vSphere Client 4.1 to connect to one of our ESXi boxes.  The ESXi Machine that I cannot connect to hosts several of our servers, which are all working normally at the moment.

I can ping the host, and connect to any of the virtual machines via remote desktop.

The error I receive is :
vSphere Client could not connect to "vm07".
An unknown connection error occurred. (The request failed because the remote server took to long to respond. (The operation has timed out))

I've tried using the IP Address of the server instead of the name and get the same results.  The web interface connects, but does not load any content.
