Single most common problem with Echolink Setups are due to Firewalls.

EchoLink requires that your router or firewall allow inbound and outbound UDP to ports 5198 and 5199, and outbound TCP to port 5200.  If you are using a home-network router, you will also need to configure the router to “forward” UDP ports 5198 and 5199 to the PC on which EchoLink is running.
