Not connecting to SAP: A connection string problem

When logging onto SAP, it shows a "Connection to partner broken" message. What is wrong?

Connection to partner broken Component NI (network interface) Release 620 Version 36 Module ninti.c Line 979 Method...

NipRead( Return code -6 System call recv Error No 10054 Error Text WSAECONNREFUSED: Connection reset by peer Counter 1
