Send Erred, Waiting to Retry Connection Timed Out or Reset

This error can occur when trying to send a roes order but the order won't send. This is usually due to a connection timeout error that is related to the modem, router, or a firewall installed on the machine

This is an internet connection issue from the user's machine that can be resolved by checking a few things

1 - Is the Computer on a Public Wifi?

  1. A lot of public wifi or networks do not allow uploads to FTP especially if the upload is particularly large

  2. If the machine is on a public wifi it's likely the order will not send

  3. Please try to send from a non-public internet connection

2 - Try Powercycling the Modem and Router

  1. Unplug the internet modem & router count to 10 and plug them back in

  2. Restart computer while internet is restarting

  3. Attempt to resend

3 - Check for Firewall Installed

  1. Does the machine have a firewall installed?

  2. If so, is it blocking ROES?

  3. Do a google search for excluding software from the specific firewall installed or try to disable the firewall temporarily while sending the order

4 - For Windows Users
Set the Native Windows Firewall to Allow FTP Access

  1. Click on the Start menu and type in cmd to open the windows command prompt

5 - For Mac and PC Users
Scan For Error Files

We have found the failure has been due to a malware program. Seems malware is redirecting/trying to redirect uploads. Users have been successful addressing the issue using using free/trial Malwarebytes to scan and remove the offending program.

Notes: check the roeslog on the Home screen. At the end of the log, look for PASV mode, this indicates that the connection back to the users machine is being blocked by a firewall
