Removed Firewall and still got the same error...

Additionally, Windows error explanation below:

 

ERROR_DESTINATION_NOT_REACHABLE

Diagnosis: Web Management Service or Remote Agent is not installed or unreachable on the remote computer.

Resolution: Verify that Remote Agent Service or Web Management Service are started on the remote computer, depending on which one you are connecting to. You can do a "net start wmsvc & net start msdepsvc" on the remote computer to ensure these services are started. Also, ensure that a firewall is not interrupting communications with the destination.

Re: Web deployment task failed. Could not connect to the remote computer

same with me. started happening all of a sudden.

 

I contacted support but they said they couldn't resolve it because i'm connecting with a 3rd party application (vs). but the problem is with the connection not the application since i had it going already.

 

FTP wont work for me also. i don't understand whats going on with godaddy but their blowing it.
