How to solve digital rights management system connection problem

From MultiCharts
Jump to navigation Jump to search

If you see the following message it means that MultiCharts cannot connect to the authorization server:

"There is no connection to the digital rights management system. No real-time data will be available."

There are 2 possible reasons for this:

  1. Internet connection problems. Please check your Internet connection. If you have a proxy setup, please configure it properly (see more info here - How to Configure a Proxy Connection).
  2. An anti-virus or firewall connection is blocking MultiCharts authorization. Please try to temporarily disable your anti-virus and firewall software and see if it solves the issue. Also, please make sure that MultiCharts has access to https://mcauth.com/, https://mcauth1.com/, https://mcauth2.com/ servers and Ports # 443 and # 80 should be open. You can try to open www.mcauth.com page in your Internet Explorer browser (as MultiCharts is using its components for the authorization) and if you can see a picture of a plant and “We’ll Have More Soon” text, you should be able to connect to the DRM system.
  3. Try to authorize your MultiCharts: double click on the authorization icon, confirm the Registration Name and Code you are using are correct, then click OK.

If the problem persists, please contact MultiCharts Support
