Default Is ICC down these days?

I can't connect to ICC for the 2nd day.
I get this message:
"BlitzIn 2.34.en
Copyright (C) 1998-2000 Internet Chess Club
Looking up chessclub.com...
Trying to connect to 204.178.125.65 on port 5067...
OnConnect error 10060 WSAETIMEDOUT: Connection timed out"

Anybody else has the same problem?
Thanks.
Denis

I was able to connect with no problems.

WSAETIMEDOUT - Error 10060

Question/Problem: Connection timed out.

Answer/Solution: A connect or send request failed because the connected
party did not properly respond after a period of time. (The timeout period
is dependent on the communication protocol.)

Check the obvious first: check that the destination address is a valid IP
address. If you used a hostname, did it resolve to the correct address? If
the hostname resolution uses a local host table, it is possible you resolved
to an obsolete address. Can you ping that hostname?

Do you have a router configured? Is the router up and running? (You can
check by pinging it, and then ping an address on the other side of it.) Try
a traceroute to the destination address to check that all the routers are
functioning.

Check your subnet mask. If you don't have the proper subnet mask, your
network system may treat a local address as a remote address (so it forwards
addresses on the local subnet to the router, rather than broadcasting an ARP
request locally), or vice versa.

Thanks for trying to help, but I don't know how to do the things you suggested.
However, reinstalling BlitzIn helped and I am back wasting my time on ICC

The problem turned out to be with the Compuserve ISP as was pointed to
me on ICC by another fellow (it is also present for the AOL
subscribers he said). Reconnect to the ISP of you have it (sometimes
you'll need to do it a few times).
