I'm getting the cannot access online database message. Worked perfectly yesterday for the new releases.

Is something weird, strange or new with your internet connection or network? New firewall rules? New router? What happens when you click on this link?

That's an example of the kind of query the scraper does...when I click on it in my web browser, it produces a bunch of data, which is what I'd expect if the Comic Vine servers are working properly and there's nothing stopping my computer from connecting to them.

EDIT: try scraping, and after you get the "can't connect" error message, press control-shift-L to generate a logfile. That may have some clues.

I had an issue last week that for whatever reason I couldn't connect. After doing some diagnostics it seemed Norton Business Suite had been disabled somehow. So check your Antivirus and Firewall, they manipulate your internet access and if not enabled properly can cause havoc.

Thanks for the help.

Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

I had configured a (temporary) proxy on IE, and obviously, IE being IE, it changes the system-wide proxy. Since the proxy is only available through a vpn connection, and said connection was down, the scraper then failed. Thanks for pointing the log and the changes, it was right there in plain english.

Cheers,
