Connection timed out

Changed the Paypal account and now I get an error -

Warning: stream_socket_client(): unable to connect to ssl://www.paypal.com:443 (Connection timed out) in ~/includes/classes/http_client.inc.php on line 71
Warning: Error calling URL (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr): Connection timed out in ~/includes/classes/http_client.inc.php on line 72
No response returned by Paypal
That issue most probably resides in the machine or the network. Do you have any firewalls that can block the call. It could also be an openssl misconfiguration. If it previously did make connections and now you all the sudden recceive a "Connection timed out". Then I don't think it's the module. An ssl protocol used for port 443 is in the right order.
