Here is the IBM troubleshooter for local OpsConsole connections:

And this one for remote:

Also, as mentioned in the thread above, applying Microsoft patches has at times in the past broken OpsConsole.  If patches were recently applied to the Windows box, you might want to try going back to an earlier restore point to see if that resolves the issue.  If so, then you can apply patches on at a time to determine the one causing the problem.

Also, always a good idea to make sure you are running the latest Client Access service pack:
