I use Trados workbench 7, build 615 and Multiterm 7.0.1, build 320.
Let me first of all say that I am not a very experienced user of Multiterm, so I hope that my question is not to silly, but looking the documentation on ProZ, I have not been able to find an answer, thus this post.
Recently I had an assignment for an agency that required me to connect to a remote termbase for the first time. The first time I connected everything worked ok. But subsequently I get this error (-2147023174): (-2147023174): Server PRC non disponibile (PRC server not available), in Trados Workbench also when I try to use local termbases. And I can get no matches even for words that I know are in my local termbase.

I am fairly confident that it has something to do with this remote termbase which I have been connected to, so my assumption is that if I can somehow delete this connection the error will go away, but I do not know how to. Under the menu "Settings" I go to "terminology recognition options" and choose browse for "termbase location". I then choose "remote termbase (multiterm server) and I get a prompt to connect to the initial server that I connected too through the agency. And here I am lost. Trados Workbench has remembered the username but not the password. There is also the option "more" which lets me specify the path for the TM server. What I would like is to delete all this information that Trados Workbench keeps in memory to see if that somehow makes the problem go away.
Does anyone know how to do this? Anybody ever experienced the same problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
