I keep getting

Error attempting to connect to weblog at:

http://blogurl/test/xmlrpc.php

The operation has timed out

When updating my blog through windows live writer. I'm self hosted, trying on my test blog which is 2.5.1, I've disabled all the plugins, everything I can think of. I also had changed the file permissions in my uploads folder to 777 as well as the xmlrpc file, which resulted in a 500 server error. I'm totally stumped here, not to mention frustrated.

found a workaround, I had to create a directory just for images on my server, and set WLW to post images via FTP. I still can't upload through the dashboard, but I can live with that I guess.

I'm not sure who you are self-hosted through, but Dreamhost has been having FTP issues (I can't connect to R4L's FTP atm). If nothing else, I'd suggest asking your web host about it. It's possible they require you to specify a setting you haven't (such as Passive FTP).
