Connection error on Northwind OData

Hi. I'm working through a Power BI tutorial which requires me to connect to Northwind OData feed.

The URL stated in the tutorial is http://services.odata.org/V3/Northwind/Northwind.svc/

However when I trying to connect to OData using this URL, I get the message

 

Unable to Connect

We encountered an error while trying to connect.

Details: "OData: Request failed: Unable to connect to the remote server"

 

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Yes, that is exactly what I was doing. I got the cited error message for 3 days in a row. I re-tried it just now, and it works.

 

I'm in NZ (UTC + 12) - I wonder if I was running into a back-up window or something?
