10061 is a TCP/IP error which implies that there is a TCP/IP connectivity issue
between the local and remote machines. Here is a possible method of troubleshooting the
10061 error in regard to the Mini Remote Control Service.
Please make sure that you have administrative rights to the remote workstation.
Reset the default TCP port usage(6129) on both local and remote workstations.
Within DWMRC, select the desired host entry and click on the Settings button. On
the Remote Options Tab, verify that the Port number is set to 6129 (must match
the Remote Client Agent Service port exactly)
To ensure the default port usage(6129) on the remote workstsation:
Stop the DameWare Remote Client Agent Service.
Delete DWRCS.INI from the system32 directory.
Delete the registry entry for the client agent HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DameWare
Restart the service.
Other things to consider:
1) There may be some other application using the same port. Stop the service on
the remote machine and run "netstat -a". There should be nothing listening on
port 6129. If there is, then something else is using the port. If not, then
restart the service on the remote machine and you should have something (DMRC)
listening on port 6129.
2) If we have verified Step 1 and we get to this point with no resolution, then
there must be a Microsoft name resolution/routing problem, because we can query
and install a service using the installed protocol via Windows API but we can't
communicate with the computer using plain TCP/IP via sockets. This means there
is a problem with your network setup. You should be able to duplicate this
problem outside of the DNTU/Mini Remote Control software.
a) Verify the IP address and hostname on the remote computer are correct.
b) Attempt to map to a shared resource on the remote computer. If it fails, then
resolve any network connectivity problems, and try the Mini Remote Control
