Problem connecting to the FindingService and MerchandisingService APIs.
Since yesterday, I cannot connect to the FindingService and MerchandisingService APIs (the
http://svcs.ebay.com endpoint). The strange thing is that it works on one of my servers but not the other. I just get a connection timeout. I know of other people with the exact same problem... They can connect with some servers but not others.
Yes. But if it's on there end they probably won't charge it. It's a deterrent I think against frivolous requests. Did you try using the IPs instead of
svcs.ebay.com or try
svcs.g.ebay.com on the request? Check if your server is blacklisted in general?
http://www.dnsbl.info/ (no idea if eBay uses this for blocking)
Moderator ate my earlier post: Make sure iptables and firewalld are off and try again. Use dig or whatever they give you access to and get the IP addresses associated with
svcs.ebay.com. If your DNS/hosts entries are out of date, you could be trying to reach the wrong IP.
Couple things here to try that probably won't fix it, but worth a shot as I've actually seen improvements from small URL tweaks like: 1) use param: &SERVICE-NAME=FindingService 2) use an earlier version, like: &SERVICE-VERSION=1.12.0
