"Could not get any response" Error: ESOCKETTIMEDOUT

All of my APIs are unreachable through Postman all of a sudden. I setup a quick test for the xkcd.com public api (http://xkcd.com/info.0.json) and I get the same thing. Console shows Error: ESOCKETTIMEDOUT. Bringing up that xkcd.com in a browser works fine so I don’t believe it’s a network issue. Postman version is Version 7.8.0.

Note the odd “There was an error connecting to .”

Could not get any response

There was an error connecting to .

Why this might have happened:

  • The server couldn’t send a response:

Ensure that the backend is working properly

  • Self-signed SSL certificates are being blocked:

Fix this by turning off ‘SSL certificate verification’ in Settings > General

  • Proxy configured incorrectly

Ensure that proxy is configured correctly in Settings > Proxy

  • Request timeout:

Change request timeout in Settings > General
