Starting around July 2017 Vanguard seems to respond with an empty response now (but still a 200 return code signalling no error).  To get the data you need to reissue the request with the cookies it sets in the response.  I added this to my fork of ofx-ba-tfb.py:

            response = res.read()
            res.close()
--- start new code ---
            # Vangaurd requres the request to have cookies it sets
            # (returns empty 200 response the first time)
            if (len(response) == 0):
                cookies = res.getheader('Set-Cookie')
                response_cookies = [c.split("; ")[0] for c in cookies.split(", ")]
                h.request('POST', selector, query,
                    { "Content-type": "application/x-ofx",
                      "Accept": "*/*, application/x-ofx",
                      "Cookie": "; ".join(response_cookies)
                    })
                res = h.getresponse()
                response = res.read()
                res.close()
--- end new code ---
            f = file(name,"w")
            f.write(response)
            f.close()

As a previous poster stated, new URL is https://ofx.scottrade.com.
Old one (ofxstl.scottsave.com) seemed to still work.
However, starting around 2015-02-23 old one stopped responding, but new one seems to be working fine.
