OFX General error Invalid Product or Version
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:15:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Connecting to the Wachovia bank site with gnucase (aqbanking) The connection was refused with "Invalid Product or Version. The Software Version you are attempting to connect with is not supported by your financial institution, please contact Customer Service for more information."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Set up aqbanking to access a userid at Wachovia and attempt to download the account list.
OFX: General error (Invalid Product or Version. The Software Version you are attempting to connect with is not supported by your financial institution, please contact Customer Service for more information.)
The account list should be downloaded.
Doing a little research I found that the appid configured in libofx is no longer accepted by Wachovia. I changed the application id to 1600 (Quicken 2007) from 1200. Recompiled and every thing seemed to work fine. I checked CVS and this fix seems to be handled better in the latest version of libofx (0.9.0) but this should get everyone running again who was having a problem with accessing their accounts.

fixes application unsupported errors from some banks
This patch seems to have fixed the problem in the RPM I just built.
Hm, I'd prefer to update to 0.9.0 in general, but that changes the API and ABI and is only really appropriate for rawhide.
I think I'll just directly pull from:
