My web proxy or firewall is preventing connections to the CSCS servers. What can I do?

If the CSCS go smart application is unable to communicate with the CSCS servers it is probably because your IT department have defined a policy to prevent such connections. To overcome this your IT department will need to update the rules on the web proxy/Internet gateway to permit HTTPS traffic to the CSCS servers. HTTPS traffic (port 443) should be permitted to any hosts within the *.cscsreader.co.uk domain. At the very least, HTTPS traffic must be allowed to all of the hosts specified in the application configuration file which is by default installed at the following location:

“C:\Program Files\CSCS\CSCS go smart software\ USGClientWindows.exe.config”
