Failed to Get Metadata - Rets Status Code Unable to Parse response as XML

  • retag add tags


I've been trying to get access to the RETS feed for the LewisClark area for quite some time now. I have access to the Tri-Cities (Washington) one and have used the rets connector program to do the pulls.

I'm using the following information:

Account Name: KOLARrets


Error that I'm receiving:

Failed to get metadata:
Failed: unable to log in: Rets status code = -2 Unable to parse response as XML

???<?xml version ="1.0" ?>
<RETS ReplyCode="20036" ReplyText="miscellaneous server error." >

And that error has been received using multiple programs. I've tried working with the other support offices but they recommended I come and post here.

Thank you for your time!

Yeah, its been going on as an issue for several weeks and I just tried it again a few moments ago but to no avail.

What RETS version do you have the RETS Connector connection set to? What Query are you using? Have you tried clearing the metadata in RETS Connector so It gets downloaded again?

bwolven's avatar bwolven (2017-12-13 11:14:52 -0500) edit

I'm using Rets Connector 1.2.7190 and I've tried 1.5, 1.7.2, 1.8, while also clearing the metadata at every step.

Here is an image what where I get in the process:

I should have caught this the first time. The URL has a spelling error in it.


It said "FINISRETS.ASPX" when it should have been "FNISRETS.ASPX", note the extra "i" in the original.

Let me know if that works for you with the change.

Alrighty! It looks like it is working now.


Can't believe it was that simple.
