Node library returns ECONNRESET, while curl works

Hi. I’ve a weird issue, when I use OpenAI Node library its internal fetch returns ECONNRESET, while from the very same machine if I run a curl request works correctly (returning an API error or quota exceeded).

  cause: FetchError: request to https://api.openai.com/v1/audio/transcriptions failed, reason: read ECONNRESET
      at ClientRequest.<anonymous> (/Users/maxxer/work/origlio/node_modules/node-fetch/lib/index.js:1501:11)
      at ClientRequest.emit (node:events:519:28)
      at TLSSocket.socketErrorListener (node:_http_client:495:9)
      at TLSSocket.emit (node:events:531:35)
      at emitErrorNT (node:internal/streams/destroy:169:8)
      at emitErrorCloseNT (node:internal/streams/destroy:128:3)
      at process.processTicksAndRejections (node:internal/process/task_queues:82:21) {
    type: 'system',
    errno: 'ECONNRESET',
    code: 'ECONNRESET'

What can cause this behavior?
thanks

I dunno what causes this particular problem, but I feel like the OpenAI api libs don’t add much value.

We use axios because we found the libs to occasionally either be unreliable or behind the actual api capabilities.

Oh sh**, I changed my Axios requests to use the lib, as it seemed simpler :rofl:

Weird the lib works fine with a third party openai-compatible provider (where indeed I do have quota available).
