[Chimera-users] Blast protein webservice error

I'm trying to run a homology model on a protein sequence using BLAST, 
but my Blast: query window shows up empty. At first I got this error in 
the reply log:

File "C:\Program Files\Chimera 1.15\share\blastpdb\pdbinfo.py", line 
151, in fetch_pdb_info
     import replyobj
     ImportError: No module named replyobj

I solved it by changing the code to "from python import replyobj". Now I 
can actually see what the error is. A few more functions are called 
until we get to this:

  File "C:\Program Files\Chimera 1.15\bin\lib\socket.py", line 480, in 
     data = self._sock.recv(self._rbufsize)
error: [Errno 10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the 
remote host

I've allowed chimera through the firewall and I have a modeller license 
key, I believe I've entered it somewhere in Chimera at some point. Any 
ideas what might be causing this?

Thanks for any advice,
Stefan Dobrev
