Thanks, I’ve seen that before and always took it to be some sort of blockage from the client host to mine. However, when people grant me admin access to troubleshoot and I try it myself, it works immediately.
It may be some sort of firewall issue on my current host (which I’ll be changing soon).
Can you please create a temporary admin account for me so I can try and activate it for you? Please use vinny [at] usestrict [dot] net for the account.
I tried it from here and it also failed. I’ve spoken with my host’s support tier 1 and they don’t see any connections hitting the Firewall or Access logs. They’ve escalated it to tier 2, but it’s most likely that your host is blocking outgoing connections to usestrict.net port 443.
