I'm doing a basic connection using .NET and I'm trying to get ticker info from Mt. Gox.http://mtgox.com/api/0/data/ticker.php
However, it just hangs. I've tried to connect to TradeHill's API ticker and it works fine for http, https, etc.
I tried to load mtgox.com but it hangs. Something about Mt. Gox's server is causing .NET to hang.
The code below doesn't work. It works for all other sites including Trade Hill's https, http, cnn.com, etc.
WebRequest request = WebRequest.Create("https://mtgox.com/api/0/data/ticker.php");
request.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
WebResponse response = request.GetResponse();
Stream dataStream = response.GetResponseStream();
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(dataStream);
string responseFromServer = reader.ReadToEnd();
