ITunes connection has timed out - solved on Mac

I have a MacBook Pro, running OS 10.5.8.  I am running iTunes 10.5.  Every time I went to purchase an app thru the iTunes store, on login attempt, I'd receive an error message that the iTunes connection had timed out. All of the Apple troubleshooting

I have a MacBook Pro, running OS 10.5.8.  I am running iTunes 10.5.  Every time I went to purchase an app thru the iTunes store, on login attempt, I'd receive an error message that the iTunes connection had timed out.
All of the Apple troubleshooting support I checked said to check the connection (duh), check the version of iTunes was current, and for Windows users, the version of IE.  Check check check. Everything was fine.
I finally stumbled on this article first:  http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3297
Following the steps as outlined, led to checking the firewall.  Not understanding what step(5) meant "Reduce the restrictions on access in the firewall" because the connections for iTunes were allowed,  I ended up clicking on the Advanced button, and then opening the console log.  In the console log, I found numerous errors from "com.apple.kdcmond" that was attempting to access my computer.  I was concerned it was some vicious attack on the computer, but after a search of "com.apple.kdcmond" found another post complaining of the same error messages that I was receiving.  The clip from below was a response to fix the problem.  I followed the directions.... as it said, my computer name was missing from the field where it belonged.  Entering my hard drive name in the blank field, fixed my iTunes problem.  Hope this helps someone else.
I just had the same problem. I solved it by going to the Sharing System Preference and entering my computer name, which was blank. It had been entered previously, and I'm not sure how it was deleted. At any rate, the error messages went away.

Just wanted to add, when I logged on earlier to post the first question, the message "Connection has timed out" seemed to happen within seconds. This was going from the log in page back to the forum page.
Sometimes, the message does not appear for a minute or so when loading a new page or as before, when going from one page to another within a domain.
This time, the forum page loaded without a problem and no error between log in page and returning to forum.
Therefore, this is an intermittent problem.
Suggestions?
