There are many causes that a program can’t access to the required server. In order to solve this issue, you have to check that the server and port is allowed to be accessed and nothing is conflicting or blocking the path.

First, check your firewall settings. It is one of the main causes for such issue. Disable your firewall and then try to finish the task.

If you’re using any older version of Visual Studio than the minimum requirement of TFS, you can fix this by deploying the Forward Compatibility Pack according to your Visual Studio edition.

Also, make sure that you have right to perform the task as it doesn’t conflict with the Windows’s UAC. Run the task from any administrative account.
