Problem with iCloud for Windows
I have no trouble accessing iCloud.com but I am unable to access iCloud through the Windows Control Panel program. I keep getting the message, "Couldn't sign in because of a server error." I've tried using the @me.com address that works on iCloud.com as well as my regular Apple ID, and both return the same error.
It takes about a minute for that message to display, so I suspected a problem with my firewall or router, so I turned off all antivirus and firewalls but still no luck.
Is there something I'm missing? Do I need to forward ports on my router to get it to work?
Thanks for your help!
ETA: I just tried something else - I used my firewall to shut down incoming or outgoing internet access and I get the same message after about a minute. That reinforces my thought that somehow, my computer or network is blocking communications with the iCloud server.
