Http connections timing out with RETS Connector

Last Thursday (2/8/18) our rets connection started timing out

Server: User name: 750idx0301

ERROR: Unable to log in: The request was aborted: The operation has timed out.

Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit

We are connecting from address

I am able to make connections to HTTPS urls

I installed RETS Connector on my Win7 Desktop, and am able to successfully connect. Any advice or clue as to what might happening would be greatly appreciated.

Are you still having issues with this?

The connection began working again last night. Did you take any action? It wasn't just the PEEDEE MLS that I was having trouble with, it was many. I could not figure out if we were being IP blocked, if there was an issue with RETS Connector, or my server firewall.

Thanks for the response!!

Not that I know of. If your IP was blocked by us, it would have blocked HTTP and HTTPS and wouldn't automatically unblock.

Seems to have cleared up for the user. May have been something with the user's firewall.
