Now that I have my code working, it is time to pin down a connection refused/timeout problem I run into. As long as I have recently logged into the LTM management GUI, my iContol API calls connect flawlessly. If however X amount of time has passed, then my API calls are refused until I once again log into the LTM management GUI. Does anyone have an idea what is going on behind the scenes? One more bit of information, I am using the admin user and password for my API call connections. Should I be using some other user?
