Hi, does anyone know why Pushpin would time out while trying to connect? The network connection in the browser shows as "(pending)" until it eventually times out. My configuration looks something like *,path_beg=/my_backend_endpoint,as_host=mydomain.com,header="Authorization: Basic <auth value here>" mydomain.com:443,over_http,ssl. It seems to start working again when I randomly change route settings to point to a different target which has the same IP address (example same-ip.mydomain.com), but once it's working again, it works even for target mydomain.com. Also, is there a way to change Pushpin's timeout period so I can debug the problem better? My backend is an AWS ELB if it matters.

@smtchahal hey, not helping in your problem, but I was wondering, do you experience any other issues with setup pushpin <-> AWS ELB/ALB <-> services ?

@pgrzesik Another issue we faced was using secure websocket: because ELB doesn't seem to provide their SSL certificate files, we had to generate a new one on a separate subdomain and host Pushpin there.

Also, if it helps, Pushpin works fine if I use one of the ELB's IP addresses as Pushpin's target, but that's not really a solution since the IP addresses are dynamic.
