Unable To Connect To Twitter Account
« on: August 05, 2018, 08:09:32 AM »
Hi There..

Using PM Version 5 build No. 19695 on Windows 10 Laptop - 64bit.

Trying to connect to my Twitter Account via the Upload option.
Selecting Twitter as the selected Uploader, Going to 'Connections' and 'Add/Replace Account'
After 20 seconds (every time...), I'm getting this message..

A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. - connect(2)

I've tried turning off the Firewall but to no avail (have an exclusion on PM in the Firewall in any case...)
On Twitter I had access allowed for PM but eventually selected Revoke Access in the hope of re-installing it - and now I can't find how to do that now   :) I presume that's done as part of the connection process ?

The Connections Settings Pop Up box doesn't seem to allow a manual entry.

Is there a way I can extend the time for the connection attempt or do you have any other suggestions ? Been trying this on and off for the past 2 weeks and feel that I'm missing something very obvious !! ‚Äč

Hi Doug,

In our testing we weren't able to recreate any errors during the Twitter authentication process. What we did find is a problem when uploading files larger than 3MB, the uploads would fail because of a limit set by the server.

I'm not sure what's causing the failure to connect during the authentication process.

You can check for a DNS lookup issue by running the following command in a Command Prompt window:


The command above should return an IP Address for

If it's not a problem with your DNS lookup, then I suggest contacting our support department for further assistance.
