I am so angry at this point, lol. I wish I had found this thread FIRST instead of after hours and hours of aggravation and sitting on hold with GoDaddy...
Originally, I set up a quick shoping cart with Quickbooks merchant account. It was a disaster. Then I got zenned, and figured I'd roll over to a Linkpoint API....
Only to find out that GoDaddy STILL doesn't seamlessly integrate all products/functionality. aaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!!!!!
So now, I have 6 months left on prepaid deluxe (hardee harrr harrr) hosting, or research changing. I am stuck manually processing payments.
The thoughts of changing hosting and having to deal with all that it entails is daunting.....
Any advice, other than live and learn? :)
Is there a recommended host that will assist in the process? Everything associated with my site is through GD.....
Sorry for the double post, but as of this morning, GoDaddy is still advising to try to install cURL to access port 1129. Grrrrrrrrr!

you want to switch to godaddy virtual dedicated server from shared hosting not only because of that port. another reason to swtich is that zencart, or any other intensive php application, runs painfully slow on godaddy shared hosting...i found this out by my own experience...
So with that, does anyone have any input, suggestions, input or direction with how best to convert from API to a Connect method with Zen Cart software? (we use vers. 126.96.36.199)
Thanks in advance to anyone with such comments.
Currently we have been in successful/functioning API mode for over 3 years. None the less, we're still looking to migrate to a 'connect method' with our Zen Cart software and seeking any advice.
Well I called godaddy and confirmed all that I have read. They can not open the port 1129. I asked for a refund for the hosting and they kindly oblidged. Now I know about godaddy hosting....
I must say that I have had no problems with them up to now and have had some incredible deals for domain registration.
Keep your account for domain registrations - you just don't want to use their hosting.

I am glad I found this thread before I bought Godaddy's hosting. I am now looking at Blue Host, has anyone had any experiences with them, ZC, and Linkpoint?
