'Currency Exchange Rate Updater' fails to connect to http://download.finance.yahoo.com

Hello Team,

 

After downloading and installing the AppExchange package 'Currency Exhcange Rate Updater' into my SandoBox account, and configuring it according to the Configuration Guide, it fails to connect to http://download.finance.com.  As such, I have contacted SalesForce.com support who informed me that this was the place to get help with this issue.  Has anyone here run into this same problem, and if so, is there a solution that you can share?  Thanks in advance,

Just to be sure, did you add http://download.finance.com to your remote sites?

 

Hope that helps,

Indeed, I have completed that step, but alas, it still fails to connect.

Actually, the guide says it should be:

http://download.finance.yahoo.com/

 

Not sure if that fixes it.

In fact, that is what I have input in 'Remote Sites', but it still does not function.

Hi Daniel,

 

Are you still looking for a currency updater? I am working on an application that will handle currency updates.

I have the same problem... Has anyone find a solution for this? It was working fine in developer edition and now that it is in production it is not working at all.

Hi,

 

I've just released Currencies On Demand which updates static and dates currencies - see link below. It is also free. Please provide feedback/suggestions for that application.
