This is caused by a firewall or network error.
- If you are getting this error, it generally means that you are on a strict network that is blocking certain types of TCP communications and is preventing Source-Connect from communicating with our servers.
- This is usually TCP port 2222 or 443 depending on your settings, contact us if you are not sure.
In rare cases, this error can be caused by an account settings related issue. You can try changing your Source-Stream server to a different one to see if resolves the error.
This error can also be caused when you have Avast AntiTrack, or similar software, installed on your computer to disguise your online fingerprints.
- If you have IT support, ask them for assistance. Give them the Network Guide to understand the requirements for Source-Connect.
