Jetpack could not contact Wordpress.com

Hi,

I haven't been able to connect Jetpack since I installed my WPMU.

I have contacted the Jetpack support team and send them logs and debugging information but couldn't see anything wrong.

I have contacted GoDaddy, but they couldn't see anything being blocked from their end.

I am using a GoDaddy VPS and can access everything on the server.

This is the error message.

Jetpack could not contact WordPress.com: register_http_request_failed. This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host.
Operation timed out after 30000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received

I know this isn't your plugin but I would appreciate any input.

It seems to me that there is something on the VPS that I need to enable or define in the php.ini or httpd.conf

I have found various references about adding a line somewhere to increase the FCGI_CHILDREN to 2 or more.

Thanks in advance.

Peter
