a-squared: can't activate

  VCR97 21:14 08 Jun 2004

I downloaded the free version and created my account without any trouble. When I try to activate I am told that the account server can't be contacted and that I should check my internet connection settings. I found a file in the a-2 folder which is called debug.txt. This says that a server side error occurred and gives error code 404 and "reason phrase" can't resolve hostname to IP address. I have no problems with any other site. (XP Home+SP1, IE6+SP1) Any ideas, please?

Sounds like the account server is offline or the address built in to the software is incorrect.

Try going to the account server address by typing the url into the address line of IE & see what happens.

Thanks for responding. It turned out to be that the proxy tick-box in Internet Options/Connections needed to be unticked. It's OK now. I hope that unticking that box hasn't upset something else.
