Re: why desktop version ask me to login?

My friend is network administrator who told me few things about error above

He said

1- If all processes running under Qlik are allowed in firewall with full access even then Qlik desktop will give error

2- If there is VPN (proxy server) running then Qlik will not work

3- Qlik will not work untill and uless firewall is not turned off and a direct connection is given to internet

4- Qlik is practically not suitable for a secured network

5- only naked direct connection to internet makes Qlik work happily.

Re: why desktop version ask me to login?

Thank you, one thing is clear that i downloaded the right version.

Other issue is that Internet connection is blocked where database server is located in the local network. And i have to connect to the database server there. what i will do there without Internet?

Dear Berka,

Could you provide the print screen about the problem?

Have you checked your current profile? Do you have admin permission?

Re: why desktop version ask me to login?

You are downloaded correct version.

You need to login with your qlik id to authenticate. Once you authenticate then you don't required internet connection.
