Basic client troubleshooting

1: Check the clock at the client (cannot be more than 5 minutes off from the server): https://virinco.zendesk.com/entries/22933457-Time-Synchronization 
2: If you use Proxy: https://virinco.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/207424313-WATS-Client-proxy-settings 
3: Get the wats.log from the client: https://virinco.zendesk.com/entries/28627176-Where-to-find-the-wats-log-file-at-the-Client 
4: If we need more detailed log, add logging level https://virinco.zendesk.com/entries/23885528-WATS-Client-Add-LoggingLevel and send the new wats.log file to support.

Possible reasons

Network traffic blocked from site
Missing proxy server configuration

Possible solution / troubleshooting options

  • Try connecting to the service address using internet browser (IE or alike)
  • Verify that logged in user can access internet
  • Verify proxy settings (ref. https://virinco.zendesk.com/entries/82148895-WATS-Client-proxy-settings)

Known issues (4.2.10x):

Client hangs when you select Configure

If you experience that a window with just borders coming up, and nothing more happens (transparent window that does not respond), it could be that your windows presentation font cache is corrupt.
