Accessing external XML file RRS feed

  • Question

  • User368968642 posted

    Hello all,

    I hope this is the right section to put this question in but I'm having trouble reading an external XML file from a different website.  I get this error:

    "A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond"

    It works fine on my local machine but once I transferred it over to the testing server, it failed to work.  The testing server is running on Windows 2008 / IIS 7.0

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    It looks like you have hosted the service to test server and trying to connect and either you are not connecting with that service correctly or there is some time out issues happening.

    Check the web service config file for time out.

    If possible post more details like your web.config file of service and how you are trying to connect.
