Hello Experts,
I have created a script for currency conversion which convert currency of the website to USD or Euro from base currency GBP.
I have used http://www.google.com/ig for currency conversion.
This script runs perfectly on my Local server and also on test server  : http://dotcompreview.com/website1/default2.aspx 
but gives error on live server : http://thats-the-look.com/default2.aspx.

Can you please suggest what changes i need to make to run script on the live server.

You might want to try increasing Timeout of WebRequest.

webRequest.Timeout = 20000; //instead of
webRequest.Timeout = 10000;

Open in new window
