Evening all,

Who's bored of this one?! Well, here's another.

As with most other people, I'm getting the above message. I've followed all other steps from previous threads and I'm still at a loss. The only thing I can see that I did do, is a hard reset and changed the name of my laptop. With any luck, that's it but let's see.

Any offers?

Thanking you,
Sam.

Usually it's a firewall and/or antivirus issue. What AV do you use?

Just the bog standard Windows Firewall. I've seen IE permissions mentioned but I'm using Chrome and all permissions are allowed on the firewall for the license manager.

I've been trying to fix it manually for the last few weeks but it's getting on my wick now!

Ta,
Sam.

Windows uses internet explorer settings, so you need to make sure they match what is mentioned in the other threads. The fact you use Chrome doesn't come into it.

What version of Windows are you on?

"Failed to Connect to Server"

Like I say, I've seen a laptop name change can send it out of sorts because I've exhausted all other options to my knowledge. Firewall & permissions are all sorted...

Have you followed the instructions in the other threads to enable TLS / SSL in the internet explorer options?

Changing your laptop name is not at all related to this issue.

What is your skill level? Can you use a network packet sniffer?

I had to Google what these acronyms meant. Got it! My apologies for my incompetence and the wasting of your time!

Can I just confirm that the issue is now fixed? If so excellent, and no time wasted, we're here to help.
