getting WININET.dll error (12002) after reinstall

Postby spederson » 04.09.2008 05:03

I recently did a clean Windows reinstall and ever since, have been unable to get Blogdesk to work with my Wordpress blog (on my own domain, hosted by aiso.net). I had written down all the settings beforehand and everything has been faithfully recreated. Blogdesk was posting just fine before I reintstalled. I can still post through the Wordpress dashboard just fine.

Here are the error messages:

Blogdesk (setting up Direct update, when you try to either obtain a Blog-ID (which it obtained no problem when I first installed the program months ago) or upload the test image): An error occurred while transferring the image. Please check your input and try again. XML parser has reported a WININET.dll error, description is 12002 - The operation timed out.

Blogdesk (setting up FTP): An error occurred while transferring the image. Please check your input and try again. Error uploading images. Error connecting to www.vert-a-go.com. The specified operation has timed out (-2147211444)

I can upload files using my Windows FTP connection just fine. My site itself (www.vert-a-go.com) loads quickly. I have tried 3 different blogging clients and they all give me similar timeout errors. I tried setting up my husband's Wordpress blog (it has a different host) and it worked fine. My host is not being helpful. Do you have any ideas what could be causing the problem?

Thank you very much!

Do I understand you correctly: using BlogDesk on your machine...
1) ... gives an error when connecting to blog A on server A
2) ... works fine when connecting to blog B on server B?

Update: after changing some mails with spederson it seems that the server is involved, but we couldn't find the cause nor a solution.
