gnucash online banking set up with bank of america
 
I'm trying to get GNUcash set up, and be able to automatically download new data from my bank. I followed the general instructions from the wiki, http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Setting...t_in_GnuCash_2 I get to the point where i need to add the accounts. Initially, i was getting a generic, error 2000 code (which basically said that the error shouldnt be used by banks and they should use a more specific error whenever possible. After doing some more research, i stumbled across another site which had some other settings that got me beyond that.. to this

Code:

21:03:43
Resolving hostname "ofx.bankofamerica.com" ...
21:03:43

Finished. You may close this window.

Ofcourse, as you can see, it still isnt quite "working". The server seems to be accepting the connection, but there seems to be an error in reading the file coming in.
I've been working on this off and on for most of the day, and am afraid i've hit my last wall i think with this program...

I tried doing this with my account several months ago and determined from someone's post that I needed to contact my bank and authorized them to enable "Quicken Online Banking" access to my account. I never did it so I can't say for sure if that will fix your problem.

sorry i should have mentioned, that has already been done, plus, from what i've read a different error code than what is being generated
