No connection could be made

Everything has been working fine for months, now I'm getting this error message.

 

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 208.75.122.62:443

 

 I also can't login when I manually enter the url in the address bar. When I debug in visual studio I get an error that says "Unable to connect to the remote server" on this line

 

IList<Contact> ContactsFound = Utility.SearchContactByEmail(AuthData, EmailAddress, out nextChunkId);

Any idea what could be causing it?

 

Again, everything used to work and I didn't change any of the code, or the password.

Re: No connection could be made

Hey,

 

It sounds like your application may be targeting a specific ip address instead of a particular domain.  I would try flushing the dns on the server to see if its not trying to bypass a load balancer and get into a particular server that is down.

Thanks for replying. I did as you said, but its still not working. Any other ideas?

Hey,


The only thing that I can think of is that you are proactively blocking an ip address that ties to us.  I would download the rest client and try to save an RCQ file of your request and send it to webservices@constantcontact.com.  That way we can see if it a location issue or if it is an issue on our side.

I'll check with networking about blocking the ip.

 

When I go to https://api.constantcontact.com/ws/customers/{apikey}%{username} im getting 

 

HTTP Status 403 - Not Allowed to access {apikey}%{username}


type Status report

message Not Allowed to access {apikey}%{username}

description Access to the specified resource (Not Allowed to access{apikey}%{username}) has been forbidden.

Hey,

 

Try going to https://api.constantcontact.com/ws/customers/your-username/contacts

 

Then use the login credentials of your-apikey%your-username and your normal password.
