Problem reaching Quandl data

Since 3/4 days my algos could not get Quandl data and this is the error message:

Something went wrong. Sorry for the inconvenience. Try using the built-in debugger to analyze your code. If you would like help, send us an email.
Exception: Problem reaching https://www.quandl.com/api/v3/datasets/CHRIS/CBOE_VX1.csv
There was a runtime error on line 115.

If I try manually to get the file locally from a browser all is fine, I get it immediately.
This mean ther'is a problem between your server and Quandl..

Any solutions? Thanks

Same for me as well.

Quandl has been having some issues with their API (see their status page). Since the issues were intermittent, you were probably able to load the file manually while the Fetcher load was attempted at a time when the Quandl API server had a problem. Based on the status page, it appears as though there are still some intermittent issues. I reached out to the Quandl team and they said they're working on fixing the problem but they did not provide a time estimate for the solution. My best advice is to keep an eye on their status page.
