Re: America First Credit Union

I get an "account not found error" trying to connect to AFCU.

I run this command in Terminal:

openssl s_client -connect ofx.americafirst.com:443

Then I paste the following:

POST / HTTP/1.1

                </INCTRAN>
            </STMTRQ>
        </STMTTRNRQ>
    </BANKMSGSRQV1>
</OFX>

And I get this response:

So apparently, the sign in works, but for the BANKMSGSRSV1 I get a error code 2003, which I understand means "account not found". Any ideas what the problem is?

Re: America First Credit Union

I was getting ERROR 2003 as well, until I learned to fix my <ACCTID> string.

Be sure to use ACCTID using the format listed here: https://www.americafirst.com/business/s … kbooks.cfm

Summary:
Account Type    Format
Savings    XXXXXX-X.1:SHR
Money Market Savings    XXXXXX-X.7:SEC
Checking    XXXXXX-X.9:CHK
Loan 1    XXXXXX-X.1:LN1
Visa Platinum    XXXXXX-X.6:VPL

For example, if you account number is 1234567 (most are 7 digits long??), and it is a checking account, then use: 123456-7.9:CHK (so you add a dash before the last digit, and append ".9:CHK" for a checking account. I have yet to try the other account types).

Also, I am using APPID QWIN, and APPVER 2300.
TRNUID doesn't appear to mean much for this banking institution. (just set it to something).

Re: America First Credit Union

Do you have to activate this service through AFCU in any way? I opened a chat with one of their customer service reps and they told me I didn't need to do anything special to use it but I can't for the life of me get it to work.

EDIT
So I downloaded the OFX tester tool and I was able to resolve my issues by using it. Some things I discovered, the password is not your login password to the website but your PIN and excluding the FI section made the post work.
