Topic: Fidelity Investments suddenly reporting Access Denied
Fidelity Investments suddenly seems to have stopped working, giving an Access Denied error message. Interestingly, Quicken is still working. Any ideas? Here is a sample request:
OFXHEADER:100 DATA:OFXSGML VERSION:102 SECURITY:NONE ENCODING:USASCII CHARSET:1252 COMPRESSION:NONE OLDFILEUID:NONE NEWFILEUID:NONE <OFX> <SIGNONMSGSRQV1> <SONRQ> <DTCLIENT>20200612170106.189 <USERID>jsad <USERPASS>[myuserpass] <LANGUAGE>ENG <FI> <ORG>fidelity.com <FID>7776 </FI> <APPID>QWIN <APPVER>2600 </SONRQ> </SIGNONMSGSRQV1> <SIGNUPMSGSRQV1> <ACCTINFOTRNRQ> <TRNUID>32249-FM7-20200612170106.189-189 <ACCTINFORQ> <DTACCTUP>19700101000000 </ACCTINFORQ> </ACCTINFOTRNRQ> </SIGNUPMSGSRQV1> </OFX>
and the response is:
<HTML><HEAD> <TITLE>Access Denied</TITLE> </HEAD><BODY> <H1>Access Denied</H1> You don't have permission to access "http://ofx.fidelity.com/ftgw/OFX/clients/download" on this server.<P> Reference #18.1c003417.1591981265.9443b39 </BODY> </HTML>
This looks very similar to a prior problem posted in this forum with the subject "Fidelity stopped working after using Quicken?" (I couldn't link it because of a link limit). It also looks like the OFX validation just started failing today, as seen in validation history for Fidelity Investments.
