Hosted Connection Not Loading

When you open up your TM2/TM3 and you can see that your hosted connection is displaying like the image below. The first step is to restart your TM2/TM3, you can see how to do this by clicking here.

If the hosted connection stays the same or tries to connect but never does, your next step is to check your internet connection - even if your internet is opening up Google / bbc.com etc this does not mean that there is a full connection for TM2/TM3 to connect - you will be best restarting your router and then your PC to rule this out.

TM2/TM3 Hosted requires a good/stable internet connection for your TM2/TM3 to operate well, but having fast broadband can sometimes mean very little if your Internet Service Provider's (ISP) connection to your location is not consistent.

If you notice that your TM2/TM3 Hosted service continues to drop out at various stages of the day the best thing to do is if you have an IT Department/Company, contact them and ask them to run a connection test.

When on our Hosted solution, it is best to connect via a wired internet connection, as you may find that wireless connections can have the tendency to drop out due to signal interruption from time to time, which will cause for TM2/TM3 to kick you out.

You would be best also checking the permissions are set on the files and the files are in the firewall. You can learn how to do this by clicking here.
