Front Unable to Detect Internet Connection?

I’ve never encountered this before, but a colleague has just written to me saying that Front can’t find an internet connection. He is connected, as we’ve been conversing back and forth in Slack and via e-mail, so I’m not sure what the trouble may be?

Is there a setting somewhere that puts Front into offline mode?

“Pinging” Strategic SAAS Services Is Essential

Because you mention your colleague “writing you,” I’m guessing you’re not in the same office.  If that’s the case, there could be multiple factors in play, including VPNs, Antivirus/Malware Software, Personal/Edge routers that need to be restarted, etc.

Here’s a FREE tool I use to keep an eye on “Strategic SAAS Services,” that might be helpful.
