#11962 closed defect (invalid)

Cannot connect to Yahoo ("Unable to retrieve server info")

Reported by: YankeeDDL Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN
Version: 2.7.0 Keywords:


Since I updated to 2.7.0 I cannot connect to Yahoo. I'm behind a proxy, but I never had problems before.

When opening the debug window and clicking to "Reconnect" I get the following:

(12:03:02) yahoo: Unable to retrieve server info. 0 bytes retrieved with error message: Error reading from Remote host closed connection.

(12:03:02) connection: Connection error on 02C29428 (reason: 0 description: Unable to connect: The server returned an empty response.)

It turned out to be a proxy issue: apparently there are some changes going on. I bypassed it and I was able to connect to Yahoo without problems. Sorry for the trouble.
