Have you ever been able to telnet to that eBay API endpoint URL before? It doesn't seem possible. I think you need to connect with SSL over HTTP only.

This is what I get: telnet api.ebay.com 80 Trying 66.135.211.100... telnet: connect to address 66.135.211.100: Connection refused Trying 66.135.211.101... telnet: connect to address 66.135.211.101: Connection timed out Trying 66.211.179.150... telnet: connect to address 66.211.179.150: Connection refused I didn't try it before so I don't know if it works. However I do have issues with ebay api being very very slow since yesterday, [I posted a question about that earlier][1]. My usual way of connecting to ebay was like helios said: SSL over HTTP.

Hi @helios825 Yep that's our normal connection method, has been working for months the same way. Any ideas why it's being refused now?
