A connection could not be established

When I try to connect to my host computer it says waiting for the host computer to connect and comes up with an error A connection could not be established.
The connection test is successful on the host when I run it and I can see the machine online when I log into from the client but it will not connect.

@ugamgray  Have you been able to test different clients such as your mobile device or another PC? 


If not, when was the last time the Host PC was restarted? 

If recently, do you have any local security software that may be blocking the connection?

Thanks for the reply. I found a solution, but it was unique to our situation as we had the machines hosted virtually with a gov't image.
