I have been with my current hosting provider for several years and several times per year Web Deploy stops working with "cannot connect to remote server" error message.
One week it works, come back to it a week later and I can no longer publish and get the error message indicated.
SmarterAsp.net support insists the problem is on my end, and I end up spending time until someone on their side fixes it.
As a result I have many different publish settings, as well as many folders each holding a version of my site from which I can no longer publish.
I can right click an individual file and publish fine.
When I pick two or more files from the preview action it fails.
