    Can't update Kimmyshop make.pl
    I have been trying to run make.pl to get the new kimmyshop update for over a week now and I keep getting the following error message:


    !!! WARNING: Internet > 500 Can't connect to www.kimmyshop.com:80 (connect: timeout)

    [retry] If-Modified-Since: Mon, 26 Sep 2005 17:33:36 GMT

    Does anyone have a suggestion on what the problem may be?

    Did it work before? Try it again. If it no longer works, ask your hosting company if their firewall is now blocking outbound access to port 80 (http port).

    Otherwise, manually download the datafeed.

    Yep, it worked before. I ran it successfully 2 times prior to this.

    I have other dyse scripts on the same host/server and they all run properly. It is only kimmyshop that was giving me a problem.

    I tried it again this morning, and this time it ran, but it didn't update. It said the data.db was up to date, but I don't think that is correct.

    The date showing on my site as an updated date is Sept. 26, 2005, but Ron posted on this forum on October 21st saying there was a new update.

    Delete cgi-bin/dyse/kimmyshop/data/datafeed.txt and run make.pl again.

    If make.pl can't download the datafeed, then manually download the datafeed and run make.pl --- Then contact your host and ask them if they recently changed their firewall to block outbound access to port 80. The make.pl script needs to be able to access http://www.kimmyshop.com/ (make.pl uses LWP::UserAgent for internet access).

    I just ran DySE::KimmyShop (v5.07.22) on my server and it ran fine.

    I contacted my host and they double checked. It is not blocked.

    I updated manually for now.

    Another update....

    My host ran a traceroute from the server to kimmyshop.com and according to them the problem is on the kimmyshop.com end of things and they suspect it is either a blocked IP or their firewall.

    They sent me a copy of the traceroute. Should I send it to you or to Ron?

    Send it to Ron. I have nothing to do with the KimmyShop.com server.
