    Hi,

    Your web server can't connect to noc1.wordfence.com which is our scanning server. Try the connectivity testing tool at the bottom of the options page and let me know the results.

    Regards,

    Mark.

    Mark, hi. I have the same problems with my wordpress (jinnie-femme.eu). I've ran the connectivity testing tool and the results are the following:

    Wordfence connectivity tester
    DNS lookup for noc1.wordfence.com returns: 69.46.36.8

    STARTING CURL http CONNECTION TEST....
    Curl connectivity test passed.

    STARTING CURL https CONNECTION TEST....
    Curl connectivity test passed.

    Seems that everything is ok. I've just made a new scan and got the same error (even though 2 minutes ago, the test was passed):

    [May 20 21:18:30] Contacting Wordfence to initiate scan
    [May 20 21:18:30] Scan terminated with error: We received an error response when trying to contact the Wordfence scanning servers. The HTTP status code was [404] and the curl error number was [0]
