Hello, I have just modified some data in my city (Poznań, Poland) in JOSM editor. However when i try tu upload changes I get error: "Failed to open a connection to the remote server ''. Please check your internet connection". My Internet connection is good (I can download data) and the error lasts for about two hours now. Is there a problem with OSM server or that's sth on my side?

I also checked this on older version of JOSM and it's still the same. Anyone experinceing same problem?

I suspect it is your side. I've used JOSM within the last 9 hours without issues.

If you try and do something very simple, like add one new tag to one node, does the problem still occur?

The problem seems to be with network at my workplace (I checked multiple computers with diffrent JOSM versions). At my home everything is fine. I think that network admin is blocking some packets which JOSM generates (maybe some not common HTTP headers?). Do you know where I can find some info about it or anybody had similar problems? Thanks in advance Mike

Your workplace might be behind a proxy for internet access. You have to configure it manually in JOSM preferences.

It is not behind proxy. It's just stupid filtering policy (e.g. accessing FTP servers on non standard port is not possible).

Well, I seem to have the same problem today. However, the changes on the other hand seem to be committed to the database anyway? When copying the address in a browser the response is: not found - so the API is down today? Any hints?

There's just been a "discussion" on the #OSM IRC channel about this. Apparently JOSM is trying to close changesets twice, which wasn't noticeable until yesterday, when something else changed to make it visible. It looks like it's being dealt with.

Made multiple edits on 16th, 18 19 20 - no issues I personally always run JOSM UPLOADS with (advanced configuration) set to

'Upload data in chunks of objects' I set to 100

works great never had an upload issue since
