Pulse Timed Out Error

I’ve read through the forums trying to find an answer to my problem so I did not have to start a new topic that you all are probably sick of. Sorry!

I have version 1.6.2 running on my Windows XP. I’ve always had my WhatPulse set up to automatically pulse at every 100,000 keystrokes. I’ve never had a problem until today.

Now it’s just giving me a box (or many boxes if I ignore it for a bit) that says “Pulse Timed Out”.

I’m pretty sure it’s not my ports since it just pulsed fine a few days ago. I’ve already been able to fidget with it to bypass the token error, but this one I just can’t seem to get past.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:

  1. You should be running There’s a well-known issue in 1.6 and 1.6.2 where users can’t pulse because they can’t connect to the server through port 80 (it’s all over the forums ;))
  2. The Pulse server was down when you posted that but it’s back up now so give it another go.

If you upgrade to, you’ll probably lose all your local stats.
