FlightXML3 Connection Refused

As of today, I am unable to connect to the FlightXML3 API from a web application I am developing. SOAP queries generate a “Connection Refused” error, and REST provides no response.

This appears to only be the case when attempting to connect from my site’s hosted web server. I attempted a REST query manually via my web browser and was successful, so it doesn’t appear related to my API key.

Is it possible that my website’s IP has become blocked somehow?


You would likely receive a different error code if you had actually been blocked.

Can you provide a snippet of the code you are using to unsuccessfully make a request?
