Cannot connect to TFS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our 3rd party partner is running TFS 15.112.26307.0. I am running Visual Studio Professional 2017 (15.5.4). I am able to pull up TFS in the browser, but I cannot connect from Visual Studio. I get:

    Server 'xxx.xxx.xxx.com' was not added. TF400324: Team Foundation services are not available from server xxx.xxx.xxx.com. Technical information (for administrator): Unable to connect to the remote server .... A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond {IP address}:8080.

    I used to be able to connect from VS2017, and also from VS2015. I cannot connect from either anymore. I am using the Windows 10 VPN client to connect to their network, but that hasn't been a problem before.

    I don't understand how it could fail to respond, given that I can pull it up in the browser just fine. And I can ping both the fully qualified domain name and the IP, and get working responses. Any recommendations?

    P.S. Apologies if my question is off-topic. I would have posted this into a "Visual Studio Team Foundation Server"-category forum, but there appears to only be one for Application Insights, not general queries.
