Troubleshooting - QB Begin Session Failed. 653 - There was an error while communicating with the Ids Server. The Response Stream was null or empty.

Problem Description:

I am using QODBC Online. I have authorized QODBC Online at QuickBooks Online.

When we try to connection, the following error appears:

2017-04-28 08:27:54 QODBC Ver: 17.00.00.321 *********************************************************************************************************************
IsAService: False
Begin Session Failed. S0000 00000 [QODBC] QB Begin Session Failed. 653 - There was an error while communicating with the Ids Server. - - The Response Stream was null or empty.

Solution:

QuickBooks Online database is accessed via REST API ( web interface ) and few of the times, QODBC Online do not get a timely response and connect may time out.

This may also depend on your internet connection and QuickBooks Online Web Services. When you receive such error, please wait for some time & try to connect again.

If you are still facing this issue, Please check the status of QuickBooks Online API service.

I have the same status for the last four days. Qb states that there are not issues with API.
