"Download failed: connection refused" problem
I found this strange error, "Download failed: connection refused" when i start the demo application available in the example folder of Qt. Does anybody have experience this.
The demo project is available here, http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/network-http.html.
I have found a solution from another forum. Actually the problem was occuring from our office network due to some firewalls and related security issues. The application is working fine in my home network.
Hence the solution for the office network is that, we have add a proxy server address and port to our Qt application.The problem was that the Qt Framework was unaware of the proxy settings. The Qt framework should know the proxy that you are using while connecting to the server for any request.

There are some tools available to check if proxy server and port number are working fine. I have tried the above solution and it works fine for me.
Please check whether your proxy is working fine.
