In today’s world, server downtime is not an option. However, the reality is that sometimes servers can become unreachable due to various error codes. In this article, we will explore common troubleshooting steps to resolve server not reachable error codes.
HTTP Status Codes and their meanings
|HTTP Status Code||Meaning|
|200||OK – The request was successful|
|301||Moved Permanently – The requested resource has been permanently moved to a new location|
|302||Found – The requested resource has been temporarily moved to a new location|
|400||Bad Request – The server could not understand the request due to invalid syntax|
|401||Unauthorized – The request requires user authentication|
|403||Forbidden – The server refuses to fulfill the request|
|404||Not Found – The requested resource could not be found|
|500||Internal Server Error – The server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request|
|503||Service Unavailable – The server is currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overload or maintenance of the server|
Common Causes of Server Not Reachable Error Code
Server Not Reachable Error Code can occur due to various reasons such as network issues, incorrect server port settings, firewall or proxy-blocking, or even incorrect client settings. Check the client logs and the server port settings to identify the cause of the issue. Use the ping command to check the network connection and see if the server is LISTENING on the specified port. Verify the IP address and URL in the address bar of the browser and check if there are any HTTP error codes or status codes in the response message. If the issue persists, try using a different browser or network connection. Use a network tool like Globo, Colligo, or Druva Storage to troubleshoot and resolve the issue. Ensure that the server is On-Premises and that there are no sync issues with inSync, SharePoint Server, or Outlook.
Troubleshooting Solutions for Server Not Reachable Error Code
- Make sure Ethernet cable is properly plugged in
- Check Wi-Fi connection
- Use ping command to test network connection
Check Server Status:
- Check server logs for any errors
- Restart server
- Check server settings and configuration
Check Firewall Settings:
- Make sure port is open for server communication
- Check firewall settings for any blockages
- Temporarily disable firewall to test connection
Check DNS Settings:
- Make sure DNS server is properly configured
- Check DNS settings on server and client
- Flush DNS cache on client
Check Antivirus Settings:
- Make sure antivirus software is not blocking server communication
- Check antivirus settings for any blockages
- Temporarily disable antivirus to test connection
response = requests.get(url)
if response.status_code == 200:
if __name__ == '__main__':
url = 'http://example.com'
print('Server is up and running.')
print('Server is not reachable.')
This code uses the `requests` module in Python to check if a server is reachable or not. It sends a GET request to the specified URL and checks the status code of the response. If the status code is 200, it means the server is up and running, and the function returns True. If the status code is anything else, it means the server is not reachable, and the function returns False.
In the main function, you can specify the URL of the server you want to check. If the `check_server` function returns True, it means the server is up and running, and you can perform your desired actions. If it returns False, it means the server is not reachable, and you can handle the error accordingly.
Network Configuration and Storage Checks for Server Not Reachable Error Code
To troubleshoot a server not reachable error code, first check your network configuration and storage settings. Make sure that all network cables and connections are properly plugged in and that your IP address is correct. Next, use the ping command to test if you can connect to the server. If you receive a “ping destination host unreachable” message, there may be a network issue. Check your firewall and proxy-blocking settings, and make sure that any VPN connections are properly configured. If the issue persists, check your client logs for any error messages or HTTP status codes. Use a tool like inSync or Druva Storage to help diagnose the issue. Once you have identified the cause of the error, you can work on a resolution.
