Re: American Express Card

I belive Amex changed the download URL to https://online.americanexpress.com/myca … fxdownload

Re: American Express Card

Wow, that worked, but I have to ask, how do you figure these things out? Is there something at the Amex site?

Re: American Express Card

Man they keep blocking my IP address for my budgeting application. Anyone else experience this issue?

Re: American Express Card

inzolo:  you need to provide a bit more information.  What makes you think they are blocking the IP address, as opposed to failing for some other reason?  I won't say they are not blocking, but it doesn't strike me as likely.

Re: American Express Card

Getting a “403 forbidden” error on an app I wrote  that’s been working for years with no changes.

Re: American Express Card

I'm also getting a 403: Forbidden error when using ofxclient.

Re: American Express Card

Did some investigation and found that adding the header "Accept: */*" made the error go away.

Re: American Express Card

It broke, I had it working again for a while, now I'm getting "Error: HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable"

I wonder if they have blocked my IP. I've tried other IPs though and get the same result.

Re: American Express Card

I'm getting the same issue.  403 Forbidden with 'Accept': 'application/ofx' and 503 with 'Accept': '*/*'

Last time it worked for me was around 8:45 am (Pacific) on 5/12.

It seems like this is an intermittent issue

Update: Started randomly working a few hours later while using application/ofx header.  Seems like this is just a common AMEX server issue.

Re: American Express Card

I'm also getting 403 Forbidden. Looks like it hasn't been working for me since 5/24. This is what I get from

ofxclient -v

when I try to add an account:

DEBUG:root:---- response ----
DEBUG:root:{'fp': None, 'status': 403, 'will_close': True, 'chunk_left': 'UNKNOWN', 'length': 0, 'strict': 0, 'reason': 'Forbidden', 'version': 11, 'debuglevel': 0, 'msg': <httplib.HTTPMessage instance at 0x10b7303f8>, 'chunked': 0, '_method': u'POST'}

Re: American Express Card

I was able to get this working again by changing the Accept headers to

text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8

as suggested here.
