Hello all!

Since last week I've noticed, that every once a while in the paypal log file I find this error message:
ERROR validateIpnContent: Error while posting IPN: Connection refused, 111

Does anyone have any idea, what is happening here?

Many thanks in advance for any useful hint!

Kind regards,
Gerald

Hello VM team!

I have some new information on this issue:
PayPal is receiving the payment (status: completed), but in VM the order status is not changed and the stated error message is logged.
So customers pay but do not receive any reaction from the shop. Understandably the are upset about that...

Today this happened again, but this time the error message in the log file is:
ERROR validateIpnContent: Error while posting IPN: Connection timed out, 110

btw - also interesting: I got the email about this error at 01:07 in the night, but in the error log the log time is 06:11 (usually I have a time difference of exactly 1 hour between set Joomla time and VM log entries - also no idea, why...).

I please for any helpful answer - thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Gerald
