Cordova UWP build can’t access the internet (outside of localhost) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have a Cordova (Ionic >=2) UWP application that connects to a backend REST service via https. This works fine in ionic serve, and also when deployed and running on iOS and Android.

    I have finally, after a very long battle, got a UWP build to install on my local desktop dev machine (Windows 10). I’ve double clicked the .appx file to install, and then app successfully installs and displays

           Access your Internet connection

    When I run a test http command it has, it can connect to localhost, but not to a remote server using https (and a published DNS names that works everywhere else).

    If I build in debug and run in VS, the error returned by the http.get just shows the following...

    I installed Fiddler, and this reports the following..

         HTTP/1.1 502 Fiddler - DNS Lookup Failed

         Connection: close

    Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong here, or how to further diagnose?

    Thanks in advance
