Ya Ive also got this issue, Prior to 12 noon my time all the trainers had no problem connecting, now 2 hrs later none of the 20+ trainers I have can connect to the Auth. server. Almost seems like theres something purposely blocking it. Ive checked windows firewall but that shutdown(ya I know but my computer and I hate the fing thing) theres no virus software running. So I'm baffled as to why out of the blue none of its works.
Addendum: Ive had trouble connecting to cheathappens.com as well. Clicking the refresh button multiple times does resolve the issue.
