Hello everyone, I am working on a Python script that searches a course (looks through discussions, wiki pages, html files, assignments, and discussion topics) in Canvas for engage videos. If a video is found, then a CSV containing each video id should be returned for that specific course. However, there is one course that throws an error:

  • Caused by NewConnectionError ('<requests.packages.urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x28f1f50>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 111] Connection refused’).


Has anybody else seen this error? Does anyone have any tips on what I can do to narrow down the causes for this error? Let me know if I need to provide more information.


Help is greatly appreciated!
