Devnet Connection Refused

Prior to about a week ago, everything has been working great.
Now, all 3 work stations here are experiencing the same issues.

  1. Phantom error, failing to load assets.
  2. Sollet is not loading anything.
  3. Simple terminal commands i.e. “solana balance” returns the balance occasionally, but most of the time the connection is refused with the following error.

Error: RPC request error: cluster version query failed: error sending request for url (https://api.devnet.solana.com/): error trying to connect: tcp connect error: Connection refused (os error 111)

We have not received any rate limit errors.
We do not run many RPC requests.
We had a test collection of 10 NFT mints last week, and tested a run of 100 as well.

solana --version
solana-cli 1.10.25 (src:d64f6808; feat:965221688)

solana cluster-version
Error: error sending request for url (https://api.devnet.solana.com/): error trying to connect: tcp connect error: Connection refused (os error 111)

10 minutes later I requested the cluster version again and got a response.
solana cluster-version
1.10.25

Could someone please explain to us what’s happening, and/or how to resolve the issue so we can get back to development?

Thanks!

This turned out to be a rate limit issue after all.
Once of our workstations is using a sollet.io wallet for dev that is making an enormous amount of RPC requests. This was noticed after hooking up a Quicknode and checking the Origin of the requests.

Not sure if it’s a residual issue, but when I try to connect to load my Phantom wallet on devnet, it’s still failing to load assets. And subsequently the devnet integration into our project is failing as well.
