I uninstalled Jetpack and on installing I get the following error when trying to connect to wordpress.com
Your website needs to be publicly accessible to use Jetpack: site_inaccessible Error Details: The Jetpack server was unable to communicate with your site [HTTP 408]. Ask your web host if they allow connections from WordPress.com. If you need further assistance, contact Jetpack Support: http://jetpack.me/support/
My webhost is godaddy.com. I’m pretty sure the site is publicly accessible.
