Calling Yahoo stock quote API returns quite often:" An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host"
I use Yahoo stock quote API in my asp.net, C# based application. Lately, 80% of the time during day time, I am getting message "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host". Can somebody tell me if it is a traffic congestion problem or any other problem on which I have control to correct?
I do not know why this is happening but I also have been seeing this error. I have an asp.net app that gets yahoo quotes and I have seen this error in my log files. In fact there are a lot of them in the last few weeks. I have tried to put the correct URL into a browser and sometimes it takes a long time to return with the quote, sometimes it never comes back. I suspect the system is just busy. It is just my guess.
