Failed to connect to api-3t.paypal.com port 443: Connection timed out

Hi all, 

Two days ago the Magento server stop working with Paypal.

When I try to buy something with PayPal it says:

 

Unable to connect to PayPal gateway.

 

In var/log/exception.log i could retrieve more infos about it:

2018-07-25T09:45:27+00:00 ERR (3):
exception 'Exception' with message 'PayPal NVP CURL connection error #7: Failed to connect to api-3t.paypal.com port 443: Connection timed out' in /www/SITE/app/code/core/Mage/Paypal/Model/Api/Nvp.php:986

I have tried to update CURL :

 

root@01-89-magento:/www/SITE/var/log# curl -V
curl 7.50.2 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.50.2 OpenSSL/1.0.1f zlib/1.2.8 libidn/1.28 librtmp/2.3
Protocols: dict file ftp ftps gopher http https imap imaps ldap ldaps pop3 pop3s rtmp rtsp smb smbs smtp smtps telnet tftp
Features: IDN IPv6 Largefile NTLM NTLM_WB SSL libz TLS-SRP UnixSockets

update the file Nvp.php with:

 $http->addOption(CURLOPT_SSLVERSION => 6);

and verified my Firewall that allow connection to PayPal.

 

 

I read somewhere that maybe PayPal is blocking my connection , it's possible?


Someone that encounter a similar issue and fix it?

Thanks

Fabio
