PayPal return activation failure

Hi,

We have been using PayPal to accept payments on our site for several years. What has worked for years is that the PayPal IPN notification activates the purchase.

We recently moved hosting company and the IP has partially stopped working.

When PayPal first sends the IPN it shows the status as 200 in our PayPal account but the purchase does not activate.

But when we resend the IPN it does activate the purchase.

We feel they must be taking a different route back.

Help!!!!

Hi Ray,

Thanks for coming back to me. The script has worked for a number of years, so I feel messing with would just add to our issues. I have a sense it is somthing to do with the firwall etc.

So I have rechecked the steps on: https://merchant.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/howto_api_golivechecklist

The site's developer is trying to find a solution, but no luck yet.

II will pass on your comment to him.

many thanks.
