Thanks! Worked for me with the kms9.msguide.com Server. The other servers gave me a connection error. Hope this helps other ppl with the issue too!

Thanks for the feedback. I've updated the gist accordingly.

I think it should be kms9.msguides.com, there's missing a "s"..

Actually I've got this server from another user report, and I haven't tried myself. I'll update the server URL with the missing "s". Thanks for the update.
