Hey there,

There are a few scenarios where console access is difficult or impossible:

  1. If you are behind a restrictive firewall. opening ports 6000-7000 will usually clear this up.
  2. If you are on a network with a double-NAT configuration.
  3. If you are behind a web-proxy (almost all mobile broadband connections configure a proxy).
  4. If you are on a satellite or other high latency connection as this can cause timeouts.
  5. Some security suites (Norton, etc) invisibly proxy web connections which cause issues.

Happy coding,
