There was an error connecting to the Apple ID server

I've been seeing this repeatedly this evening: -


on both macOS and iOS devices.

What was strange was that I was able to log into https://appleid.apple.com/#!&page=signin without problems.

After some trial and error, I realised that, for some reason, my home broadband router was somehow blocking the connection.

I proved this, on an iPhone, by turning off WiFi and using 3G instead. I proved the same on an iPad and on a Mac, by connecting to a different broadband connection.

Weird or what ?
