The CKS World Clock and Weather web part allows users to display local time and weather for selected major cities from around the globe. You can download it from here.

After installing and adding to a page we received this error:

WebPart Error :: Method Name – OnPreRender :: [MESSAGE] – Unable to connect to the remote server

The issues ended up being with our proxy server. We added the defaultproxy to the web.config and the issue went away.
