Input/output error - Client request call

Hello everyone,
I am facing issues with web service calls. There wasn't any code change to web services. But suddenly i am receiving an Input/output error. This is consistent and it is occurring only for my machine, other developers are not facing this issue.

Please suggest me, how to fix this error, this is a recent error. I have observed one common pattern i.e. the client call is not hitting the service at all, hope this would help in investigating

Thanks for the help in advance.

If this was my problem I would use TCPMON or SOAPui to see what if anything is being transmitted in the request.

I agree with the last post. Isolate and reproduce. My trouble shooting motto. The problem is only from your machine, others are not having an issue. So the web service is working fine. Have another developer create a soapui test. Then give you that test. Do you still have the problem? Does soapui work, but not your client? ....

Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.

Are you able to telnet service endpoint from your machine?

Hi Harsha,
Adding to very good replies earlier, if it is a public web service you are referring check your HTTPProxy settings. I presume you use version control software so that the code on your system with which you are invoking calls is same as on other developers systems.

Thank you William Brogden, William Barnes, Shashank Ag, Naren Chivukula.

The problem is that all my other colleagues are using QA provider URL and i am using DEV provider URL. And the URL is part of a property file. I have overlook this part. But finally when i was looking into your replies i though the best way to first verify whether the end point is working or not through SoapUI.

Thank you for the help.

But can you please help me with one more issue. with Post naming
