I was given 60-days' access to partner-smoke-test-a.blackboard.com and partner-smoke-test-b.blackboard.com. My main concern is whether the web services and LTI would still work as desired, so that's my initial focus. I am unable to connect to these web services hosts via curl in the code that normally does so. This code has been in production use for over a year.
I followed the normal set-up steps:
- make all web services available and discoverable (wsdl files open in new tab when clicked as a check)
- set the proxy tool registration password
- try to register my proxy tool
The error comes when I try to initialize the Context client using context_client->initialize().
The error text: ERROR: Could not connect to host
Have WebServices been blocked in the smoke test instances?
