Hi,

 

Check your firewall; make sure that port is open.  Most firewall software will detect the connection attempt and prompt you to allow/disallow the connection.  You might also need to forward that port through your router.  I don't know what model router you have, but this might help: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Sitecom/WL-153/iTunes.htm.  I've also heard this is overkill, but it probably can't hurt to try.

 

Hope this helps!
