I'll immediately forward this to my coworkers and we will contact Watchguard/Websense and ask them to resolve the issue as soon as possible. I'll let you know as soon as there are any updates on the issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I'll keep you updated.
some more information from our IT team: Your Internet in the office with ILAP (by BELL)
I am able from our office (Rogers) to ping id.remoteutilities.com while cannot from SIltech (BELL) I tried from 2 other clients using BELL as ISP and cannot ping (connect to id.remoteutilities.com)
It looks to be some block/issue in BELL’s network reaching id.remoteutilities.com network Rogers:
This is very urgent on our side if can be resolved soon please
I've just checked if I'm able to connect to a remote Host via Internet-ID connection using our public server and can confirm that it works as expected, i.e. our public server is reachable. I've additionally checked with our developers if there were any recent downtimes or other issues with our servers and they confirmed that our servers are up and running.
The issue might be caused by some security software (for example, antivirus or firewall) on the perimeter blocking access to Remote Utilities. Could you please let me know if you have any antivirus/firewall software running on the Host machines where the issue occurs? In addition, please let me know if all of the machines are connected to the internet via the same ISP and if yes, then can you please provide us the name of this ISP as the issue might be occurring on their level (if the ISP is blocking access to Remote Utilities)?
Looking forward to your reply.
