Are you certain you can connect to port 9000? or maybe it's blocked by your filewall / isp / something.

You can test using telnet:

Code: Select all

telnet 9000
If you can connect you should see something like: "WELCOME TO THE ANIDB API SERVICE"

(the command to close the connection is "BYE")

If this doesn't work maybe you should ask your isp for help.
