We are trying to access the board CREN with the following link:

We manage to authenticate with our credentials, but when we try to make a GetObject request, we run into the following error:

RETS ReplyCode="20036" ReplyText="Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

We also noted that this happens with any paragon boards, and not just with the CREN MLS

Is there any fix for this?

What account name are you using?
Do you have a sample of your getobject request query?

We only support the types listed in METADATA-OBJECT.
For Property it would be: Photo, Thumbnail, and if enabled for your profile Document.
Looks like the Type validation isn't working properly at the moment.
Your request has Type=LargePhoto which is invalid.

Oh wow thanks for the info! It works just fine when I use Photo

Sorry about the confusion.
It should be returning a more useful error message like:
RetsReplyCode: 20401
RetsReplyText: Invalid Type [LargePhoto]
