Hello Feisal,

Thank you for your message.

Could you please send us the Host logs for examination? Here is how to locate the Host logs: https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/docs/host-log/
You can send them to support@remote-utilities.com. You can also submit a support ticket and attach the log files to your ticket.

Also, could you please let us know what firewall and perimeter firewall you use? Recently a couple of our users reported that certain firewall manufacturer erroneously blacklisted our ID server and website IP addresses. We are now in the process of determining who the manufacturer is and your help would be much appreciated.

Looking forward to your reply.

Hello Feisal,

You can also send a false positive report to WatchGuard here: https://www.watchguard.com/wgrd-support/security-portal/report-false-positive
Sending false positive reports usually helps speed up the resolution process.

Please let me know if you have more questions.

Hello Linda,

We do our best to help as fast as we possibly can. However, this specific issue isn't a fault of Remote Utilities. It is an issue with WatchGuard Firewall/Firebox erroneously blocking our legitimate service (as reported by several different users/customers already).

Moreover, judging by a yesterday's tweet addressed to WatchGuard Remote Utilities isn't the only service that was affected.

We recommend that you as WatchGuard customers contact them too and ask for this issue to be resolved as quickly as possible.

Hello Feisal,

Thank you for the details.

Could you please clarify, if there is an endpoint firewall or a gateway firewall?

Also, if it's possible, could you try to connect the Viewer to the Internet via another network interface (e.g. Wi-Fi or mobile network) and see if the issue persists. This will help to isolate the problem.

Looking forward to your reply.

Right except Watchguard claims the issue is resolved per the tweet....
