Problem with JetPack: register_http_request_failed

  1. Hi there.

    I'm trying to install Jetpack in a self hosted wordpress that runs in Amazon EC2 and I'm obtaining the following:

    Jetpack could not contact register_http_request_failed. This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host.

    The blog has a plain wordpress installation with no other plugins and I switched to the default theme just in case that was the problem. I also SSHed the server and did the following (using the apache user that is the one running the Apache server that runs WordPress):
    <br /> apache@host ~ $ curl -i -L --data 'test' ''<br /> HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request<br /> Server: nginx<br /> Date: Fri, 26 Oct 2012 12:51:50 GMT<br /> Content-Type: application/json<br /> Transfer-Encoding: chunked<br /> Connection: keep-alive<br /> Vary: Cookie<br /> X-hacker: If you're reading this, you should visit and apply to join the fun, mention this header.<br /> X-Pingback:<br /> Expires: Wed, 11 Jan 1984 05:00:00 GMT<br /> Cache-Control: no-cache, must-revalidate, max-age=60<br /> Pragma: no-cache</p> <p>{"error":"home_missing","error_description":"The required \"home\" parameter is missing."}

    It seems that the connection is being made without problems... What should I try next?

    Thanks in advance.
