Hello,

I'm working with Wordfast 2.1.8 (I'm a beginner; I´ve only been using the basic functions) and I'm having some trouble when connecting to a remote TM.

After typing all the relevant info, and clicking ok or Test, the following error message appears:

Failed to connect. could not connect to TM server XXX as Anonymous

It seems I'm trying to connect to a server as Anonymous; however, although I'm prompted to introduce a user name, I have no field to introduce the password. Actually, when I open the New Remote TM box, only the following appears:

URL:
Remote TM Properties
Symbolic name:
Workgroup ID:
Username:
Search Depth:

Is this ok? Shouldn't I get "Password" and "Port" fields to complete with the corresponding info as well?

Since I've recently re-installed WF, I also checked the license, but it seems to be ok.

Thank you for any help!

Claudia

Your Wordfast versions is very old. Please download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:
http://www.wordfast.com/store_download.html

You may need to re-license if the Install No. is changed (as it is a very old version).

Try again, and if you still have problems, please send me the Remote TM data to (support ## wordfast.com) and I will check it here.

Same Problem Nov 20, 2010

I have the exact same problem (my wordfast version asks for different information than the one the client provided for remote tm). I have Wordfast 6, so it can't be because the version is old.

Dear María Laura,

Wordfast 6 is not a version; it is rather the "obsolete" name of Wordfast Pro. To know your current version, please go to "Help" menu > "About Wordfast"; if it is less than 2.4.0.1, please download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:
http://www.wordfast.com/store_download.html

Also, download and install the Filter Pack update at the same page. (Again, check in a week or so for a newer version.)


Having the latest version should help. Please let me know.

can not connect to TM server Jul 17, 2012

Hi Yasmin,
my WF version is 3.0.0.
Until 3 days ago I have worked on WF with remote TM with no problem.
Suddenly, when I try to add a new remote TM the above mentioned error message appear.
I have read, it could be due to firewall protection, so I disabled it but it still doesn't work.
Any suggestion?
Thanks a lot
Amelia

Dear Amelia,

Could you please contact me in private with the URL and/or details of the Remote TM. I will test here to see if it works or not. I just need to see if the problem is in the client's server or in your machine.

Kind regards,
Yasmin

Trouble solved Jul 17, 2012

Hi Yasmin,
I reconnected my laptop to another server and it worked again.
It seemed to be a port access (444) denied problem.
Thanks for support.
Amelia
