I am using iTunes 10.2 on Windows 7 32bit I am trying to subscribe to a video podcast (Tekzilla) and I am getting an error message.

enter image description here

I've been trying to do that for a couple of days and I'm getting the same error message so I guess the problem is on my side, somehow....

Try subscribing directly to the feed.

Under the "advanced" menu, select "subscribe to podcast…". Then, enter one of the feeds found on Tekzilla's website.

Found the issue. removing all the iTunes rules from the Windows Firewall and adding a single rule that allows all traffic for the iTunes executable solves this issue.
