Cannot 'register' the XO

Postby garth » Sun Nov 16, 2008 10:26 pm

After clicking on 'Register' from the personal menu (includes: Control Panel, Restart, Shutdown, Register), I get an error "Registration Failed Cannot connect to the server." I am using the Internet, so I have network/Internet connectivity. Is this an error as the OLPC end, or is it something else?

I have the newest build -- clean install yesterday.

The register only works if you have a school server in the area. If you do not and just have an internet connection then you don't have to worry about that. There was a wiki page that also explained this but I can not find it at the moment.

Thanks for the respone -- it was helpful!

I didn't find it either in the wiki (or forums) -- I *always* check before I post!
