General Web Connector: Unable to connect to the remote server

Hi
I am using General Web Connector in order to to download data from a web server and save it to local disk.

Entering the url in the IE-browser address works fine and let's me save the content to disk as pdf. URL is:

https://lab.myserver.com/asp/partners/mypartner.asp?pCcy=AUD&pLang=de&pIS=AU000000RIO1

Now when using the General Web Connector with GET method, I always getting error message:

"Failed on attempt 1 to GET. (Unable to connect to the remote server)"

Any idea what the problem is?

Thank you!

Marcel

Re: General Web Connector: Unable to connect to the remote server

Remark: If I copy the generated URL to a browser address, the server can be reached and question whether to save or open the pdf is generated as well:

http://localhost:5555/data?connectorID=WebConnector&table=SaveToDisk&url=https%3a%2f%2flab.myserver.com%2fasp%2fpartners%2fmypartner.asp%3fpCcy%3dAUD%26pLang%3dde%26pISIN%3dAU000000RIO1%26pToken%3d490.463&isFile=True&contentType=application%2foctet-stream&fileName=c%3a%5ctemp%5cxx.pdf&overwriteIfFileExists=False&appID=

but it does not work when using the General Web Connector in QV Load Script (Unable to connect to the remote server).
