I'm attempting to update my Salesforce project using MavensMate and Sublime Text. However, it seems that any attempt to connect to Salesforce results in the following error:

[OPERATION FAILED]: [Errno 10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

We've tried different orgs, different machines, different wifi networks, even switched over to Eclipse and we're still not able to connect.

Anyone have any idea what's happening here? Seems to be an outage on Salesforce's end of some kind.

  • You said you tried with different wifi networks. Are those using the same cable network, though? I've had a similar problem last thursday, but it was my provider's fault, not Salesforce's. Aug 24, 2015 at 19:22
  • We tried on two completely different networks - different providers.

I tried all the way but it didn't work. Finally I uninstalled the mavensmate and installed it again. It worked. Try this. It might work for you as well. Thanks.


Have you checked your instance status at https://trust.salesforce.com/trust/instances ?
