What is the root cause of Winsock 10060 (connection timeout) errors?

What is the root cause of Winsock 10060 (connection timeout) errors?

A WinSock 10060 Timeout error occurs if more than a certain period of time expires before a connection could be established to a particular host. If you do not specify a connection timeout, the Windows default behaviour is used: Windows sends 3 TCP connection requests (syn-request) with increasing timeout values from 3 up to 12 seconds. If the host does not respond within that time, Silk Performer raises an Winsock 10060 timeout error. The timeout will occur after approximately 21 seconds (3+6+12). The most likely causes for Winsock timeouts include server overloading and network congestion.
