  • After some search, it is kind of network timeout as you said. Then, do you know when ETIMEDOUT occurred in a network situation? i,g , expired cookie

  • ETIMEDOUT have numerous causes, and can be from client side or server side. If it is at server side, it could be from Stellar-Core or Horizon; if at client side, it could be due to the modules, sdk or network binder itself. So...you better print out more extra info on the error message, so as to narrow down the scope to find the origin of error.

  • i assume that you are using CLI tools. Could you store the reponse message and output it in full? Not sure how you make a request to Horizon... (for me, i always use the js-stellar-sdk to send request, so i just log down the entire response json object)
