DescriptionEdit

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

Usually, this is because the server is down for maintenance and doesn't want to be disturbed.

Note: this is different than Error Code = -2, 10060

What You Can DoEdit

Check the Combat Arms main page, the news section, and on the forums to be sure that the servers are not currently undergoing maintenance or are temporarily offline.
