Coldfusion - UPS Address Validation - Post working problem

This code has been working fine for some time now.  Not sure what happened.
I believe the problem must be on ups end.

It tells me the problem is here:
Connection Failure: Status code unavailable
<cfhttpparam name="requestAV" type="XML" value="#AV#">
Connection Failure: Status code unavailable 
 
316 : <cfhttp url="https://www.ups.com/ups.app/xml/AV" port="443" method="POST" throwonerror="yes">
317 :     <cfhttpparam name="requestAV" type="XML" value="#AV#">
318 : </cfhttp>
319 : <cfset VerifyAddress = XmlParse(CFHTTP.FileContent)>

A simple test seems to work fine for me.  Maybe the problem is on your end?

It is hard to tell.  It could be anything from a transient firewall problem to a temporary problem on UPS's site.
