I'm playing around with the Netduino tutorial, and I'm so close, but I can't see what I'm doing wrong.

I form up the POST and then send it off:

POST /update HTTP/1.1
Connection: close
X-THINGSPEAKAPIKEY: <my write key>
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: 14


And I always get back:

HTTP/1.0 408 Request Time-out
Cache-Control: no-cache
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html

<html><body><h1>408 Request Time-out</h1>
Your browser didn't send a complete request in time.

I really can't see what's going wrong. I'm using the tutorial cut & paste and I get the response back from the API well before the timeout.

What am I missing?

Can you ping "" on the same network and let us know what IP address that you are getting back?

We don't issue a 408 error code. I am wondering if you are pointing to a different IP address?

Turns out I'm just a newb....I was using as the DNS lookup instead of the API IP address, so I think I was sending an API POST header to the main web server, hence the weird responses.

Sorry about that, I'm able to post data now.
