    Thank you for contacting us.

    Can you please provide us with more details on this issue? Are you getting the error when you are working on the editor, accessing the form by its URL or somewhere else? Also, do you get the same error on other sites?

    We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    I get the error when I am changing information on a form and when I am just vewing the form and also when I am printing a form. I can only print out one submission at a time I have to exit out of Jot form then pull it back up to print the next submisson.  So this happens all the time.

    Normally when problems are experienced with your connection to our Website it will display an " Offline Message " by us on our Webpage.

    It seems to me that you are mentioning a TCP Network Error which sounds to like you are mostly experiencing a network issue when trying accessing your form account during heavy server traffic. This issue is primarily due to peak times where it kicks your connection offline due to a connection timeout or lag creating this problem. We have serveral servers but we also have several users so depending on where you are located and also your current connection speed I can understand how this might become a related problem.

    I have cleared your form cache for you from our end. Can you please log out then clear your browser cache followed by logging in again then attempt to see if this helps to correct the problem for you so that you can print them again without having to exit.

    Also, if the problem is continuing then which browser/browser version are you accessing our website from? Have you tried this from a different browser to see if it lets you access them and print them without the same issue? If not then please try that now.

    Are you running any Internet or Web Security Software? I know sometimes this can interfere and cause problems with certain websites depending on the program which can then cause these types of problems when connecting to them once they are flagged by the program in your firewall.

    I work for a hospital and we do have web security software, but they do allow us to use the Jotform so I dont think that could be an issue. It was approved by them. 

     

    Do you think we just need more memory? and need to upgrade our package?  I will log out and see if that helps with what changes you made already.

     

    Thanks.

    @LVHPatEd,

    It would be difficult to conclude what is causing this issue. Like what my colleague mention it could be some software installed. I suggest that we try to isolate where the problem is coming from. 

    1. Try using a different browser

    2. Try using a different computer

    3. Try using a different computer with different OS

    Additionaly we would like to know on system and browser you see this message. If it works with different browser and OS meaning to say this issue is isolated to only one computer. I was browsing through net and found this guide. Let us know if this helps.

    Thanks,

    Well, I did use a different browser now and I dont have any isses yet but  When I print the order sheets it looks awful. So I have to go in Google Chrome to print the sheets. 

     

    I am unable to use a different computer do to at work we have asigned computers.

     

    Since I am at work I cant change my OS. This is all I have to work with.

     

    Thanks

    Do you mean that the issue is still happening when you print your submissions through Chrome? Can we also have the form name in question? Thank you.
