Socket.connect in the Windows binary of Julia V1.0.1

Should this work in the windows binary

It works correctly in Fedora 28 Julia V 0.6.3

It’s not a local port on the linux machine that windows doesn’t have open?

I can connect to the remote IP from the Fedora 28 VM that is running on
the Windows machine
Turning off the windows firewall has no effect on the connections from
Julia in windows.

Can you ping and/or telnet to that combination from a terminal?

Yes, I can ping the IP from both the host windows Julia 1.0.1 and Julia 0.6 on the guest.
The first couple of pings from Windows fails, then it starts as expected.
Is there anyway to increase the timeout of the Sockets.connect?
