I’m working on a site where internat access is VERY locked down. I am having the following error when I open the EPiServer Add-ons page, “Error occured when trying to get packages: Unable to connect to the remote server”. Could anyone tell me the URL it is trying to access? I will need to get this domain allowed by the firewall team?
This should help you.
https://addons-api.episerver.com/feed/ should be accessible.
You can get similar error if there is no license on the site.
What kind of licence do I need?
Is a Partner Dev Licence ok?
It should be valid license :)
As soon as your site is working fine with this license, it should be ok.
Sorry to be dump.
Can a demo licence or partner dev licence allow access?
Does it have to be a valid server licence?
Yes, it should be ok. License should be deployed and it should be valid for this web site.
Note to self:
Check the proxy settings are correct in the web.config!
I now have same issue, wonder what is the correct proxy setting in web.config to make it work?
Hello there, I'm having the same issue, although I have added the following to my web.config file:
<system.net> <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true"/> </system.net>
I still get the error in my episerver log saying it can't get to the location: 126.96.36.199:443
Did anyone ever resolve this one in a way that might be useful for me?
