I cannot login with the guest mode. It serves me the following error:
Cannot connect to to create your account. Please check your internet settings and try again.

I tried it with and without the 'normal' BB program closed and I am pretty sure my password is correct.

So I thought, lets see what the "Forgot your password?" option does. After filling out my user name or e-mail address, it shows the same error message.

The normal BB program is able to login (automatically) and I can see another buddy online. BB version on Vista and XP (on the same network, behind NAT, with different port numbers).

An other small error I noticed, I opened the guest mode on my Vista PC without closing the normal mode. However, there was a update of BB. BB provided some kind of error that it could not update. Something like a notification to close the other BB window would be better. It is not a big issues because restarting BB, with the normal and guest mode closed, automatically installed the update.

Hi Niels,

We did do a server upgrade last night and the server was offline briefly.

This also coincided with an update to the software. Because of the update, BuddyBackup may have not been able to connect until it was auto-updated.

Am I right in saying, you've now seen the update run successfully?

If so, can I ask, have you tried running guest mode now BuddyBackup has auto-updated?

Just on a seperate note, the password remind feature is a newly item added. Users who created accounts before 12th August 2009, won't have their passwords saved on our server. See here for more details.

BB is updated successfully (software version
Thanks for the info concerning the password remind feature.

However, the guest mode is still not working. If I enter a wrong password, BB informs me that it is wrong:
Your password was incorrect. Please try again.

If I enter my password correctly, I still provides the same error message, knowing:
Cannot connect to to create your account. Please check your internet settings and try again.

Is this a BB error, or do I do something wrong?

Edit: I have never tried guest mode before, so I don't know if it is related to the update.

Hi Niels,

OK, we've tracked this one down. It was a problem at our end, which hopefully has now been fixed.

Can you have another try and make sure you're happy that it works?

It works, logging-in and restoring. Nice job!
