Hi everyone

If you do receive a connection error message there are some simple troubleshooting steps that you can try to resolve the issue:

  • check the MYOB status page for outages

Flushing the DNS cache can also resolve connection errors. We do recommend speaking with an IT person in relation to the impacts that flushing the DNS can have however, below are the common steps to complete that process:

  1. Close AccountRight.
  2. Click Start.
  3. Enter cmd in the Start menu search text box.
  4. Right-click Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.
  5. Run the following command: ipconfig /flushdns

If the command succeeds, the system returns the following message: Windows IP configuration successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.
