It seems to be able check auctions, but it can’t do anything that requires a login.

Thanks for reading,

Greetings,

On June 9, eBay changed their login process to require your actual username, instead of just your email address, UNLESS your email address IS your username. If you had set up JBidwatcher with your email address instead of your username, this is exactly the problem that would occur.

I’ll be documenting that, hopefully, in the next version.

I’m afraid that this isn’t the problem. I’ve double checked both the username and password …

Maybe it’s my web borwser, Mozilla?

or maybe the problem is that I’m behind an iptables firewall. The firewall allows any connection initiated by me, but would stop a connection initiated by ebay …
