Problems connecting Visual Studio to Azure. target machine refused connection?

I have been uploading to Azure for at least six months. From this afternoon onwards I now get messages like this:

There was no endpoint listening at that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details. Unable to connect to the remote server No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

Can anyone give me advice on what's wrong. I tried to upload a new management certificate. That worked fine but then said "authentication error".

-------------Problems Reply------------

Can you please check if Fiddler is running or not? Normally when you run Fiddler it acts as a proxy and listens at port 8888.

Hope this helps.

I have the same problem. It doesn't matter if the Fiddler is ON/OFF or the computer has been restarted - the problem is in Fiddler Option.

The msg was: "Unable to connect to the remote server No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it"

Go=> Fiddler/Tools/Fiddler Option/

Connection Tab:

  • make sure that "Allow remote computers to connect" is NOT checked
  • make sure that "Monitor all connections" is NOT checked

Here is a sample video:

Hope this helps.
