After updating to Xamarin 6.2, my app can no longer communicate with my web service.
I am connecting to a web service via a local network IP address (10.35.32.237:65453) with HTTP scheme.
I am explicitly providing NSUrlSessionHandler to my HttpClient.
I have NSAppTransportSecurity with NSAllowLocalNetworking to YES.
I am seeing two symptoms:
1. The web service does not receive my post body
2. The request times out
I wrote a Swift app that does the same operation using NSUrlSession and it worked with no problem.
Thread I started on forums: https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/89357/nsurlsessionhandler-failing-after-update-to-xamarin-6-2
Is there any chance you can share a test case with us so we can reproduce the issue and double check your project configuration?
If you have sensitive information I can make this entire bug private.
Also please give us your entire environment information:
Xamarin Studio > About > Show details
I'll see if I can put a test project together but even if I do you won't be able to reproduce unless you can setup a similar endpoint. Anyway, I should have something sometime today I hope.

Test Project that also fails
This project presents a UI with 3 buttons.
use default handler - this one uses the handler from the project settings
I discovered that once you use NSUrlSessionHandler and get a failure, the others will time out.
If you use HttpClientHandler first, then it works flawlessly many times.
Please find test project attached.

Not sure if this will help but Rolf had suggested for the FileProvide bug I submitted that I try using NSUrlSession directly. I implemented that and got the exact same symptom until I set the headers in the request properly.
None of the handler works, but I can't ping the IP address inside the attached code.
However this sounds a lot like bug #52682  which was fixed in XI 10.4.0.128 (C9 SR0) .
Can you try to update your version of XI, which was 10.4.0.123 based on comment #2 and let me know if this fixed the issue ?
Else just reply to the bug when the server is available again for testing.
As I mentioned earlier in the trail, you would have to setup your own endpoint to try this. This ip address is on a private intranet. I provided the code just so you guys could check out what I was doing.
I've never updated an individual component. Is it just a simple install?
@Ted, sorry I missed the earlier part - sadly it's not clear how the endpoint is configured so it's not really helpful.
In case you do not want to update everything to SR you can still use XS "Check for Updates...". Just wait for it to download all new stable software, then you can select (checkbox) which one you want to install, e.g. only Xamarin.iOS.
Once installation is complete you should restart XS.
I didn't realize that there was a new SR. I had just checked for a new update earlier in the day. I prefer to update to the SR.
NSUrlSessionHandler seems to work fine after updating to the SR that includes Xamarin.iOS 10.4.0.128.
Also, I can step through code in the debugger again!
Glad this fixed the issue(s) and thanks for confirming :)
