Cannot Connect to localhost after fresh install, Windows 10

Postby cdella » Sep 26 20 7:34 am

After installing Wingate 9 on Windows 10, with all firewalls and windows defender turned off, I cannot access localhost on the machine to get to the license activation prompt that normally comes up upon logging in. The error I get is "Connection with WinGate server terminated".

Any ideas how to fix this?

Hi

this sometimes happens if something else is running on the port that WinGate uses for remote control. By default this is port 808.

The service that usually is the offender is the dot net TCP port sharing service. This is very infrequently needed (used by dot net services to share a port). So you can usually turn it off without causing any problem.
