When the network check was performed, the server was returning a SSL Error "Illegal Parameter (47)", which seems to be an OpenSSL/curl bug . To avoid this bug I enabled SSLv3 for the scrobbler
connection. Following this change the Last.fm server responded but it didn't know the "user.getRecommendedArtists" API method (it is not present in the current API ). I changed the tester method to "user.getInfo" and parsed the "username" received from the Last.fm server.
