If it works ...

In reply to: ?

on another machine, it's likely that it will work on yours if you do a clean install of the OS to remove any interfering software that blocks the connection. Could be any malware or any security software.

So the answer clearly is yes. But it's not sure that you can fix it without a reinstall of your OS. That depends on the cause, and you don't give any clues on that.
