Can't connect to any hosts

Since this morning I'm unable to connect to any of my hosts, which are in different networks, so I assume the issue is centralized in the server that allows the connection by Internet ID connection.

If that is the case, when do you expect to have it back up and running?

I was able to connect to all the hosts yesterday without issue.

Currently when I try to connect it displays "Logging on..." for about 15-20 seconds, then it goes back to Idle or Offline.

Thanks,

Hello Arturo,

You are probably using version 5.x. A month ago we informed our users that they would need to upgrade to version 6 within a month until August 10, 2015. We also sent a newsletter to all free user e-mails that we have in our database.

You need to upgrade your installations to version 6. Don't worry about the free license - it's still free. You just need to upgrade the program.

In a couple of days we will restore access for another week specifically for those users of version 5.x who didn't upgrade yet and who can only remotely access their Hosts. A week will be enough for them to remotely upgrade their Hosts (we explain how) and then we'll terminate access to our servers for free license users of the version 5.x forever.

To sum it up - you need to upgrade to version 6, both Viewer and Hosts.

That is exactly my problem.

I guess I missed the part that said it would no longer work.

I usually do the "if it works don't fix it".

Can you please set the access back up today so I can update the hosts???

Thanks,

That's right, and that is why we notified our users beforehand.

I'm sorry, but we are planning to restore access no earlier than Thursday or even Friday. The users need to understand that it's not just a mere accidental downtime. We need to cover as many users who still have not upgraded as possible.

Could you please start a ticket then, so that we wouldn't go off topic in this thread? You can do so here . Or you can just start another topic in the Windows forum.

Any chance of restoring access today? Please!!! I really need it. Is there an alternate way?

Thank you.
