Windows 2000, XP (Home & Pro), Vista and Windows 7

This could indicate that your connection is being blocked by a firewall or proxy server. Please consult your firewall / proxy manual or contact your Network Administrator.

Firewall issue

In all instances it is advised that you have the following ports open and clear for outbound traffic:

Port 443

Port 5103

The following 2 sets of IPs are used by Pulse

Primary Site (as per below) (port 443) (port 5103) (port 80) (port 80)

Secondary Site (fall back in case primary is not online) (port 443) (port 5103)

Pulse does not need access to any other IP addresses.

Some further background info that may assist you:

Pulse.exe talks to an application called InsClient.exe (which runs on the same computer as Pulse) which actually communicates with our servers.  An icon appears at the bottom of the computer on right hand side (with other notification taskbar icons) when InsClient.exe is running.

Pulse.exe talks to InsClient.exe on port 5110.
InsClient.exe talks to our servers on port 5103 or 443.
