Reckon Accounts Hosted login issue - Didn't get connection settings

Hi everyone

We're currently looking into an issue affecting the ability to login to Reckon Accounts Hosted.

Reports indicate a "Didn't get connection settings" error message is appearing during login attempts after entering your credentials.

Our Hosted team is investigating this at the moment and we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this is causing at the moment.

I hope to have more information from our devs very soon which I'll update here.

    BUT, Microsoft Edge is working and connects for me. On the same computer.

    Hi everyone

    I've moved your posts over to this main one so you receive notification of updates as I post them here.

    Investigations are continuing into determining the cause of this issue as we speak.

    Unfortunately it looks to be a widespread issue at the moment rather than anything specific to a certain browser. I've tested out logging in using Chrome, Firefox, Edge & Samsung browers however no luck 😟.

    Restoring access to Hosted is top priority for us right now and rest assured our teams are on the case.

    Stay tuned for more info, I'll post here as soon as I receive it from our devs.

    It's probably no coincidence that Microsoft also released a major update release last night!

    Please Help!

    I log in, click on LAUNCH ACCOUNTS 2022 R2, a new window opens and displays "Didn't get connection settings" in plain text.

    I have cleared browsing data history and try to log in again and receive the same error.

    Any ideas please?

    Hi all

    Is anyone else experiencing this message: Didn't get connection settings
    Reckon hosted was running and stopped. Reckon support phone is cutting off before
    being answered. We have logged a support ticket as there is no way to contact Reckon.
    Hope it doesnt last long
