I installed TightVNC on my Raspberry Pi and Windows computer, but when I try to start the connection I get an error on my Windows computer that says:

A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

The weird part is that the connection used to work fine before but now it has stopped. All other solutions I found on the internet did not seem to work so I thought of posting on here.


You can check following -

  • Check if tightvnceserver is running on your RPi.
  • Check if you are connecting to the correct port on which tightvncserver is running.
  • Make sure you can ping your RPi from windows machine.
  • Make sure the ports are not blocked by firewall on windows.
