Portable Why Can’t I Connect 1.12.4 Multilanguage
“Why Can’t I Connect?” is a network diagnostic tool that makes it easier to resolve TCP/IP connection errors. Use it to diagnose connections to common server types (Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL Server, FTP, SFTP, IMAP, POP3, SMTP, IRC, LDAP, Usenet) and create generic / user defined TCP/IP clients and servers.
Maybe a firewall is blocking the requested port, the port isn’t listening, DNS isn’t returning the expected address, DHCP hasn’t supplied a local IP address, the SSL / TLS certificate has expired, the WiFi login isn’t complete… The application will step through the connection process, resolving all IP addresses, displaying all sent and received messages in both hexadecimal and ascii. Any errors will be reported with possible causes for the error.
“Why Can’t I Connect?” is a DIAGNOSTIC TOOL ONLY. It will find the root cause of the error but it will not, apart from incomplete WiFi / wired network logins, attempt to repair the connection. The application is intended for users with some network experience or users who wish to be able to supply technical details to a help desk. There is currently support for Windows and Linux operating systems.
Why Can’t I Connect? diagnoses the following common server types:
Microsoft SQL Server
In this release:
1. Fixed a bug where the “Server Send” dialog and the “Server Shutdown” dialog where clipping the display of the connected socket handle.
2. Removed the WiFi connect option. Lacking time and hardware to support this in all operating systems for all routers, I will reintroduce this option when possible (check the README file to restore this option at it’s current state while compiling.)
3. Updated the MinGW compiler, wxWidgets, and OpenSSL versions for the Windows binary release (this and all future releases are no longer compatible with Windows XP.)
4. Added a Raspbian / armhf debian binary release.
