Marc, I thought I replied saying I didn’t know where the OS X console for logging was. I will look at it, but don’t know where to find it. 

Clifford, I am running Java 8 build 51.
JOSM app, version 8491
New Macbook Pro OS X Yosemite
No proxy servers in any browser or in the system preferences

I can test access the OpenStreetMap API in a browser and see xml: http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/way/93710880
And here with a secure connection: https://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/way/93710880

In JOSM I have
* chosen the JOSM menu (top left)
* chosen 'preferences...'
* on the icons running down the side, I’ve chosen the second one which looks like a globe
* checked 'Use the default OSM server URL (https://api.openstreetmap.org/api)
and I’ve entered my OSM username and password.

No joy. Would love to run JOSM on this computer.

Clifford, I probably only replied to Suzan the first time. She got back to me with some details.

Java 8 & JOSM version seem OK. It has something to do with the network connection, although browser can connect and no proxy involved.
The error in the dialog says java.net.ConnectException: No Route to host

And a text asking to check the proxy.

I had no clue what else could be checked. I asked her to look in the OSX console for logging. She did not reply on that yet.

I’ve tried all the usual fixes in the preferences, but can not get JOSM to connect with the server on my new Mac running OS X Yosemite. It may be a system thing. Anyone out there that can help?

It doesn't look like anyone has tried to help. I run JOSM on an Mac upgraded to Yosemite. This was a fresh install of Yosemite. An upgrade to Yosemite may behave differently. 

Have you verified that java is installed? Use https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp - A browser that supports flash is needed for this test. I used Safari to verify that the latest version was installed.

See if you can run JOSM from the command line,  
cd /Applications/JOSM.app/Contents/Java
ls *.jar #use the output for the next command. Replace josm-latest.jar with your .jar file
java -jar josm-latest.jar

If running from the command line works, but not from Finder, I would remove JOSM.app and reinstall.

Let me know if you need additional assistance.
