    Hello & Welcome to PCHF, cjdj

    As my online time today may be limited, I'll get your issue marked as OPEN to attract the attention of the experts that frequent PCHF. Do you think you might be able to provide more detail, such as what troubleshooting have you tried so far?
    It would be most helpful if you could complete your portion of the User Profile. That would put your system's information in the small computer icon just right of your name. That will "travel with you" at PCHF so we don't have to ask for it again. Be sure to mark them to be visible. The default is NOT to show them.

    Please know that our Staff of Volunteers come from locations around the world so time zones play a big part in how quickly the person with the answer is available to address your question. Your patience is appreciated!
