@dgagnier I'm sorry for the connection troubles you've recently encountered.
Because this is an old, generic Community post with no confirmed environment or resolution, can you help us understand the problem by listing your affected operating system, network connection type, and other troubleshooting steps you've already taken?
Sorry about the old issue!
I am working with a Lenovo laptop, Win10 (x64), on a domain network, with fairly new Fortinet firewall.
My supplier is presenting Webinars every week for 6 weeks.
2 weeks ago, my coworker (the desk just beside me) and me, attended a webinar from our supplier and everything worked fine.
Last week, and this week, it worked for my co-worker, but not for me. I tried the same steps as before: Follow the invitation sent by the presenter than, accepted the install, it installed without error and waited to join. Sometimes it shows me that I am waiting the session to start, even if it is stated, or after 30 sec, gave me the error that the connection failed.
Tried to download and install separately, without any change. Tried to stop the task, reinstall, nothing worked.
All that time my co-worker can follow the webinar under the same conditions, aka: internet connection, firewall, environment.
@dgagnier1 If you see the 'waiting for organizer' message you should be in queue to join once the broadcast begins. In your case I would contact Customer Support should this happen again. Some log files would need to be gathered in order to find the cause of your specific failure.
Tried las time, but did not reach someone, by the time the presentation was finished!
But the typical problem is that "Connection failed. Please check your internet connection."
