I think some of these issues like number of connections may be ISP related.
For the last few days I have not seen the 1203 (?) connections refused issue. Maybe fixed.
Uploading of images I have also had problems but it seems when I have changed the program that saves the file it suddenly works.
Not sure if that is of any use.
