Hello, My desktop app is not syncing or able to send while on work network.

Is there proxy setting for the app or what port is it using for in and outbound.

Thanks !

Got it! Thanks for the extra details, Mickey_H. While you're at work, are you able to go from that same laptop to www.vzw.com/verizonmessages and sync through the web-based application? While connected at work, are you also connected through a VPN that may have restricted access to external services?

lets do some digging to get to the root of the problem. What kind of phone are you using? What is the name of the app you are having trouble with? Is this a personal desktop or a work pc?

Thanks Bryan, I have iPhone 5 and using desktop Verizon message app.

I have installed this app on work laptop I use .

Issue is only happening when connected to work network.

When connected to my home, app sync fine .

It seems like it's being blocked.

Thanks

HI paulmz,

Typically, the app in office environments are blocked by system firewalls.

Here are the ports to set on your work computer to allow for SMS to transmit. It does not work in all cases, but it has worked in some.

COMPANY FIREWALL BLOCKING SMS? – user these PORTS

HTTPS: 8443 

IMAP: 993

GOOD LUCK!
