It would appear the web service no longer exists or is not working
You would need to contact whoever the provider is

hi Gary

That's what I thought - thanks for confirming my assumptions. I cannot get anything to load even if I type the url on a web browser.
I have contacted the support  - ( they are a bit slow to respond ) but good to be prepared so asked the question here.
