Mailchimp API Error

Having trouble with Mailchimp import of list. Says 'Could not access MailChimp API.' and get the following DEBUG message.

    [type] => 2
    [message] => fopen(http://us11.api.mailchimp.com/export/1.0/list?apikey=MyAPIKey&id=ListID): failed to open stream: Connection timed out
    [file] => /var/www/vhosts/domain.co.uk/httpdocs/admin/addons/apps/perch_mailchimp/PerchMailchimp_Util.class.php
    [line] => 37

Scheduled task is setup, update to latest version of Mailchimp App. Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

"Connection timed out".

It sounds as if the connection with MailChimp is timing out.

I'm going to check everything I have done on this site and compare settings with another account in mailchimp. I installed on another site just a few weeks ago and everything works fine so suspect settings on this account are incorrect somewhere.
