Hi All, wonder if someone can help. I've been happily using this excellent API for a very long time... but yesterday all of a sudden my code has started reporting

The operation has timed out

On the following command...

flickrFrob = myApp.getSetFlickrflickr.AuthGetFrob();

My code is absolutely unchanged... so I'm guessing I have a firewall/connectivity issue starting from yesterday?

Thanks for any pointers, cloudzilla

Hi

It does seem strange that it has just started failing.

Are other calls to Flickr working? Have you tried a simple unauthenticated call to PhotosSearch perhaps?

Are you running on Vista by any chance?

Thanks for the reply Sam... oddly it's just started working. Either I or flickr were having problems - my money is on me!
