    Can't connect to iTunes store either. Message says network connection has timed out. Tried every troubleshooting suggestion on Apple's website, but nothing works.

    I cannot connect to the iTunes store, even though I used to be able to. It gives me the same 'network connection has timed out' every time, even though my internet connect is fine.

Check your firewall, enable it if it's stuck off. And also check your virus and malware programs, it sounds fishy if you can connect to every other site sounds like someone set it so you can't get in, check your security settings also

This may have something to do with your Internet connection go to IE explorer then when you see diagnose connection do this if that is the case. It should repair the issue or give you an idea as to what is wrong with you Network Connection. If you can access other web sites just not I Tunes it could be that their server is down temporarily this does happen sometimes. If you are on a modem or router you may wish to reset the modem and router to fix the Internet Access issues.

It appears from your question that it has nothing to do with what you are doing just a bad connection back and forth to I Tunes I would try the reset on the modem or router or restart your computer as well. Thanks for using FixYa! John

  • You upgraded to Windows XP Service Pack 2. Windows XP Service Pack 2, by default, enables the Windows Firewall. As with a third-party firewall, you will need to configure Windows Firewall to allow iTunes to access the iTunes Store. To do so:
    1. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.
    2. If the Control Panel is in Classic View, skip to step 3, otherwise open Security Center.
    3. Open Windows Firewall.
    4. Click the Exceptions tab.
    5. Select the iTunes checkbox to enable it as shown here:
      1. ts1368_1.jpg
      2. Click OK.
      If you have further questions about configuring the Windows Firewall, contact Microsoft's Service Pack 2 hotline at (888) SP2-HELP. Read this article for compatibility information.
    6. You switched to a new ISP. If you didn't install new networking hardware, your ISP may be blocking access to the iTunes Store. Let your ISP know about this article which can help your them configure their servers to allow iTunes Store traffic through.
    7. The "hosts" file may be blocking the iTunes Store Instructions for Windows 2000 and XP: Find your hosts file. The hosts file is normally found in the following locations:

      Windows XP: C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC
      Windows 2000: C:WINNTSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC

      1. Select the hosts file. Then click the Edit menu, and choose Copy.
      2. Then, click the Edit menu again, and choose Paste. There should now be a duplicate of the hosts file named "Copy of hosts".
      3. Drag the original hosts file to your desktop.
      4. Right-click the "Copy of hosts" file and choose Open. You may be prompted to choose the program you want to use to open this file. Double-click Notepad.
      5. When Notepad opens, click the Edit menu and choose Select All. Then click the Edit menu, and choose Delete.
      6. Click the File menu, and choose Save. Close Notepad.
      7. Right-click the "Copy of hosts" file, and choose Rename. Type "hosts" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
      8. Restart your computer and try connecting to the iTunes Store.
      • Make sure that your computer meets the iTunes minimum system requirements.
      • Make sure that your operating system is up to date:
        • For Mac OS X, use Software Update to determine if you need to update your system.
        • For Windows, go to Microsoft's Windows Update webpage.
      • Make sure that you can access the Internet on your computer.
      • You may have firewall or other security software that is preventing your computer from connecting to the iTunes Store. Click here to find out which ports and servers need to be allowed for iTunes Store access.

Click OK till you are out of everything, and then close Internet Explorer

Then it is your security that is blocking you

Sometimes this error can be caused by software on your computer that slows down the network connection. This error can also appear if you are downloading multiple items. I'd like to provide some steps that should help you successfully download your purchases.

It often helps to pause the download and then download items one at a time. These steps will walk you through doing this:

1) Open iTunes.

2) From the Store menu at the top, choose Check for Available Downloads. If you're unable to upgrade and are using iTunes 7, the option will say Check for Purchases.

3) Enter your account name and password, then click Check. Your purchases should begin downloading.

4) Under the STORE section on the left, click Downloads.

5) Click the Pause All button in the lower-right corner. This will temporarily pause all of your downloads.

6) To resume only one of the downloads, click the refresh button that appears to the right of one of the paused downloads.

Certain types of software can affect the way a computer sends and receives information from the Internet. Here are a few examples of these types of software:

  • Firewalls
  • Web accelerators
  • Ad filters
  • Virus protection software

If you have any of this kind of software installed on your computer, you will need to configure each of the applications to allow your internet connection to access iTunes freely. For instructions, please refer to the documentation that came with that software, or contact the software's manufacturer. You'll need to configure the software to allow these domains to send and receive data from the Internet freely:

itunes.apple.com
ax.itunes.apple.com

For assistance in configuring your firewall or accelerator software, you may need to contact the manufacturer or your Internet service provider (ISP). When contacting their support representatives, it may be useful to have the following information:

"Well Known" TCP and UDP Ports Used By Apple Software Products
http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1629

The following article helps Windows users pinpoint software conflicts that could cause the error:
Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows XP
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1275

Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows Vista
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2292

Once you have managed to allow access to iTunes through other software, please follow these instructions:

1) Sign out of the iTunes Store.

2) Quit the iTunes application.

3) Restart your computer.

4) Open iTunes.

5) Select Check for Available Downloads from the Store menu at the top of iTunes, (if you're unable to upgrade and are using iTunes 7, you'll choose Check for Purchases).

If you can't find this option, you can also click this link to do the same thing:

https://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/checkForPurchases

6) Enter your account name and password, then click Check. The missing item should begin downloading and appear in your Purchased playlist.

Please note that the iTunes Store cannot investigate every user's connection issue. Apple Discussions are another source of information about iTunes, where everyone from new users to professionals can interact and share their knowledge and experiences. You may find another user with the same operating system or ISP that may be able to help resolve this issue. You can find the iTunes discussions group at:

http://discussions.info.apple.com/itunes

If you are using a dial-up connection, you might consider downloading your purchases over a broadband connection, if you have access to one.

ITunes cannot connect to iTunes store, the network connection was refused. What should I do ?


I had added a proxy to my internet explorer while trying to access another intranet. I always use Firefox so I didn't think it would matter if it was set to the intranet IP as the proxy, but apparently itunes and some other programs blindly copy the proxy settings from explorer and will stop working. everything was fixed when I disable the proxy in the connection tab.
