Hi guys,

I'm getting the following error while trying to connect with a remote TM on wordfast pro:

"Failed to connect. Cannot leave read-write mode (bad password (26))."

Does anyone know how to fix it? It happened with different remote TMs.

Hi, Marina. Were you able to resolve your problem? I keep getting the same error with different TMs on different Wordfast versions and I haven't found any solution yet.

Check to make it read-only Aug 29, 2016


Did you check to make sure that your remote TM is in read-only mode? If not, you may have either mistakenly entered a TM password or you did not enter a workgroup ID.

It might be best to contact your client directly to double check your connection string. They may also have misconfigured the TM on their server…

Kind regards,
