Here’s some more troubleshooting tips.

  1. Try restarting your router. Turn off the router for a full minute then restart it. Leave it for another couple of minutes. Please note: If you have Star printers, the IP address may have changed so you may need to Search for printers again and locate them in the posBoss printer settings.

  2. Have there been any recent changes on your network? You may need to contact your IT provider to assist.

  3. The last things you can do from the posBoss side of things is a delete and reinstall of posBoss. This will reset everything so you will need to enter in your HIT credentials again.
