No longer able to download from LOTW ??

Post#1 » Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:34 am

LoTW request failed. The most common cause of this failure is either an incorrect account was used, or the wrong password was entered.
No new LoTW QSO records found.

I know they recently made a change, saw some posts on LOTW Yahoo group - can't remember the details...

"After doing some research, it appears the LoTW server changed their protocol options to strict checking to fix a vulnerability. However, that broke a variety of clients, including NetLogger. I had already decided I was going to do a 3.1.6 release to fix some bugs and make some other minor changes, but this problem will mean that I need to get it out sooner, although I may not be able to get a new one out for a week or two. So just hold off for now and upgrade when the new release comes out and you should be able to get the status updates. Meanwhile I believe the uploads still work, and you can check recent status on the LoTW website."

Any ETA on a fix ??

Have found a work around by resetting last LOTW check date... then when I do an update, it pulls everything LOTW has QSOs for, takes a while for almost 3K contacts but works so I only do it once a week or so.. was just a lot easier & faster to check them in small groups of recently uploaded contacts...

Best Regards,
Paul
