Cant connect SGP to PHD2


#1

Hey Guys,

Bought your SGP program. I’m trying to run the sequence generator and it starts up and attempts to access PHD2 and just times out. Like it can’t communicate with PHD or find it. Here the log.

Much appreciated. Oh, using Microsoft Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10

Hi Walter,
Please see this post on how to ask for help.

In addition to the link @joelshort posted, you might need to look at allowing an exception for PHD2 in whatever firewall software you are using.
