Dashboard not connecting to server


  • Had no problems setting this up but keeping it that way looks like another matter. Logged in today to find that dashboard can no longer connect to the server. The little flag below tells me either my PC or the server is offline, when I know it is not. Can not connect to the http://server/connector either. I've tried removing this PC from the list in the server. I tried uninstalling the connector software, but then I could not reconnect to download it again. I can browse to the server folders via the website no problem. Although I have only had this running a short while, it hasn't backked up any of the clients either. (:-X).

    I thought of adding the port number to the web address, but I can't remember what it is.

    Please help?


    machines rule. might as well get used to it!

  • I was able to lock in on my home office network to my server using the dashboard login.  We changed the network adaptor on the server and since then I cannot access the server dashboard from another computer on the same network.  I have removed my desktop from the server (through the server dashboard) and reinstalled all the launchpads.  I still cannot connect to the server dashboard.  I can connect to access files etc.  I can even connect with remote desktop and take control of the server, just cannot connect using dashboard.  Any ideas as to how to solve this?
