JOSM will not connect to the server
JOSM app, version 8491
Java 8 build 51
OS X Yosemite
No poxy servers set in System Preferences
I can test access the OpenStreetMap API in Chrome and Firefox and see xml: http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/way/93710880
And here with a secure connection: https://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/way/93710880
In JOSM I have
- chosen the JOSM menu (top left)
- chosen ‘preferences…’
- on the icons running down the side, I’ve chosen the second one which looks like a globe
- checked 'Use the default OSM server URL (https://api.openstreetmap.org/api)
- I’ve entered my OSM username and password.
I forgot to mention via email that you can also try to contact the developers via a ticket system: https://josm.openstreetmap.de/newticket
(SReed asked this question first on the talk mailing list, but nobody replied, so I asked her to come to this forum)
The situation has been solved by changing Advanced Settings. Found two instances of ipv6. I changed both to False. One was True, the other Auto.
Ran into this today and asked about it on OSM Help: https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/44990/josm-cannot-download-map-data.
Seems like a real bug, at least on some platforms.
For the record, looks like there’s a closed ticket for this: https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/11735. Will add my input there to see if this can be resolved.
