Re: Band Status and Chat Function



I experimented with this a couple of days ago and experienced the same issue. It was after a bit,  both computers finally came up on the grid.  Attributed to gremlins and hope it's that simple. It may have taken a bit for the network to populate but it did finally come up. 

...and what Scott said too... virus protection.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The most likely cause is that your Windows / Internet protection software is clamping down on the connection attempt.  Giving the client the proper permissions to be able to connect in your protection software will likely do the trick.

Lots more details are here:

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Band Status and Chat Function

Getting ready for FD, I finally got another computer to test networking with. I followed the various directions and both computers are using the database and contacts are showing up on the other computer appropriately. Dupe checking is working. The only thing that isn't working right now is the Band Status and Chat Function. On the primary computer hosting the database, it shows up in the Band Status Grid properly. The other computer does not show up in either grid. On the other computer, nothing shows at all in the grid. I have checked Enable Status/Chat Functions on both machines. The status on the primary computer says "Connected to computer". On the other machine, the status says "Attempting to connect to computer". I am using File Share, not TCP.

Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong?

tnx es 73,
