I used a registered version of Internet Download Manager (IDM) to manage my downloads. But recently I have a problem with its update. When I want to update it shows a message that contains the following error. What can I do?
Internet Download Manager
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
Probably the service is inactive on the server or you have a firewall installed that blocks Internet Download Manager.
If you have a firewall, please ensure that its settings allow IDM downloading from the Internet.
Cannot connect to www.internetdownloadmanager.com:80
Can’t Update Internet Download Manager.
You cannot update the internet download manager because of two reason. 1) the server which provide the updates is too busy 2) the second reason is that your connection can't be established with the update server. For both reason you have to wait and try again and again.
In your case it is because of the connection is not established with the server you have to try again and again because the server which have a limit of client to handle when it reach to its limit then it drops all the request it get but trying again and again you will win chance to establish connecting with the server hope this will help you. Thanks.
