  • Verify client and server are on the same Homegroup/Workgroup/Domain. This can be set up in the network and sharing center.
  • Disable any installed 3rd party antivirus/firewall software. If connection now works, the antivirus/firewall software is the problem.
  • Verify line 80 in the file C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\9.3\data\pg_hba.conf reads as follows: host all all all md5

Error printing labels. Please verify DYMO printer is connected correctly. DYMO LabelWriter 450 Turbo printer must be installed.

Possible Solutions:

There is a known issue with DYMO software v8.6 and greater that does not allow labels to be loaded correctly. The only known fix at this time is to unintall your current version of DYMO Label software and install version 8.7.1. Download version 8.7.1 here

OrderTrac client computers are freezing up AND the server computer is running Windows 11.

Possible Solutions:

Open Windows Defender Firewall and select Advanced Settings in the sidebar. Switch to Inbound Rules via the Getting Started page or the sidebar. Find the rule named “Core Networking Diagnostics – ICMP Echo Request (ICMPv4-In)” with Profile of “Private, Public” (unless you’re on a corporate domain…). You can right-click the rule and Enable Rule.

Screen resolution of OrderTrac changes when trying to print DYMO label which results in messed up font sizes

Possible Solutions:
This happens only on computers with a high resolution screen. One solution is to open the display settings on your computer (Settings > System > Display Scale and Layout) and set the Scale to the recommended % option.

Another possible solution would be to override DPI scaling by right clicking the OrderTrac icon, click Compatibility -> Change high DPI settings -> enable override high DPI scaling -> select system. Click Save and run OrderTrac again, this time when printing labels, the screen resolution should remain the same.
