Testing your connection prior to a transfer


The Test Connection feature is helpful when configuring a new Location.

This will test all incoming and outgoing connections, firewalls/ports, licensing, and credential settings. 

We strongly recommend running this test after adding a new Location.


To begin, navigate to your desired Location and Select Edit.

At the bottom of the pop-out window, Select Test Connection.


Note: The tests are done in sequential order. All previous tests must pass in order to continue onwards.
