GO-Global Connection Issues
GO-Global for Windows
Having issues with client connection to the host server
Are there any errors displayed when attempting to connect?
if so..please screen capture the errors message(s)
Did your Host Name and/or Host ID (mac address change)?
If so, then a rehost will be required.
Please verify that the GO-Global License service is in the 'started' mode.
If started ... stop and restart.
Have you applied Window Updates?
check the Support Portal for host release notes for possible issues with KB updates
Does this affect all Users trying to connect?
Can you connect locally to the Host as the same user?
Check port 491 is reachable from outside we recommend using the TELNET service on the remote client. (If you are not familiar with using TELNET, please use our hot tips and search keyword TELNET from the support portal).
If the TELNET test was NOT successful... then you need to further troubleshoot our network. Resource Dynamics does nto provide network support that includes firewalls, port settings, etc.. Your host must be successfully reachable from the outside on port 491.
If the TELNET test was successful then...
Please verify that only your valid license(s) are in your \program files\graphon\go-global\programs. If you have old and/or demo licenses this can cause issues. If you are not sure of your valid license(s), email Support@Resource-Dynamics.com a copy of your license(s) and they can validate for you.
Remove any license files that are not valid and stop and restart the GO-Global license service.
Your permanent license could be corrupted...Email Support and request a copy of your license file(s).
Verify your host and clients are both on the same GO-Global version. Version 4.7 and older are no longer supported. You must upgrade. If you have an active contract, complete the Upgrade request from the Support Portal.
If you are on a version 4.8, please have the client duplicate the connection attempt and then note and provide the following:
USERS name that duplicated the connect attempt
DATE and TIME the connection attempt was made
Run the Support Request Wizard from the cluster manager | help menu (this creates a zip file of items we need)
On the Host , browse to \program files\graphon\go-global\logs and locate the APS log that covers the date/time frame the connection issue was duplicated.
Send this information to us so we can further research.
If you are on version 5.0, there are now client log files available.
