      Description

      Hi,
      I want to try to connect to a Moodle hub. My server needs to use a proxy server to get the language packs or the timezone update. The proxy server settings are filled in and the language updates and timezone update are working fine.

      When I go to http://fobi.schulon.org/admin/registration/index.php?lang=en I get the following error message.

      "An error occurred when retrieving the hub listing from Moodle.org, please try again later. (Unable to Connect to tcp://hubdirectory.moodle.org:80. Error #110: Connection timed out)"

      Best regards, Ralf
