    Hi @Bryan1


    Thanks for joining GoDaddy Community! Glad to have you. 


    It would be difficult to say for sure what is happening without more information. The answer could change depending on the type of hosting you have, what app you're module is part of, and how it's trying to connect. If I were to guess, I would say it probably either has to do with the connection information you're using or the port you're attempting to connect through is blocked. Please consider adding additional information here so that Community members can try to help!
