SOS Client hangs when connecting to an invalid port

Post by lbauer » Mon Apr 05, 2004 3:18 pm

If you connect to an invalid port, the SOS Client may continue trying to connect to that port and hang.

Following the steps below should allow you to specify which Server and
port to connect to next time you launch the SOS Client:

1. Close the SOS Client.

2. On the SOS Client machine, start regedit.exe (the Registry Editor).

3. Open My Computer -> HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software ->
SourceOffSite -> SourceOffSite -> Settings.

4. Under Settings, delete the following entries: Last Port, Last Server,
Server List and Server Port List.

5. Exit regedit.exe.

6. Restart the SOS Client. You should get an empty "connect to server"
