sas http error (connection has timed out...)

I'm trying to use filename and connect to a website.

I've tried the following two code samples and received the same error:

"ERROR: The connection has timed out.."

Does anyone know how I fix this?

Thank you.

filename foo url
'http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/table.csv?s=HIT&a=11&b=29&c=2004&d=01&e=1&f=2005&g=d&ignore=.csv' debug;
data stock_prices;
length Date $9;
infile foo firstobs=2 delimiter=',';
input Date Open High Low Close Volume Adjusted_Close;
run;


filename http socket "support.sas.com:80" termstr=LF lrecl=8192;
data _null_;
infile http length=len;
file http;
if _n_=1 then put
'GET / HTTP/1.1' /
'Host: support.sas.com' /
'Connection: close' / ;
input;
file log;
put _infile_;
run;

I have the same issue, did you find a solution? I can open the URL in a browser (it is SSL with username and password).

Thanks,

Stig

Re: sas http error (connection has timed out...)

You might need to add code for a proxy.

For example:

filename foo url 'http://www.a.com/test.dat'

  proxy='http://www.gt.sas.com';
