I currently have a Node.js application that makes requests to the Airtable API, which I have been using as usual. However, from yesterday to today, I am encountering this problem:

[Nest] 31452 - 02/02/2024, 9:32:17 AM ERROR [ExceptionsHandler] connect ETIMEDOUT 18.214.64.4:443 Error: connect ETIMEDOUT 18.214.64.4:443

Has there been any change to the API?

Yes, Airtable no longer allows API keys as of yesterday. You will need to switch to a personal access token now: https://support.airtable.com/docs/creating-personal-access-tokens

But I am using personal access tokens, in my code I even refer to it as an API key, but it's an access token.

That’s great that you’ve already made the switch! Sorry, I’m not sure what else could be causing a timeout error. Maybe other people will have some ideas below.
