Troubleshooting Roasting Intelligence (RI) syncing issues

This article will help you troubleshoot the most common issues that cause syncing problems with Roasting Intelligence.

What is a syncing issue?

If the connection between Roasting Intelligence (RI) and the online platform (C-sar) is disturbed, information cannot travel between these two platforms. If this happens, you cannot successfully sync the data.

You are facing a syncing issue if you see one of the following error messages within RI:

  • Error syncing data: After pressing the Synchronize button in RI.
  • You can only change to a machine with an active internet connection: When switching machines in RI preferences.

Potential causes 

A syncing issue can have different causes:

No active internet connection/slow internet connection

Please check your internet connection and make sure the connection is stable. To do so, try the following steps: 

  1. Open your standard browser and try to access any website. If the loading speed is slow or the page does not load at all or does not properly load, the syncing issue is most likely caused by the connection.
  2. Check if you are connected to the network that you usually use.
  3. If you are using a laptop, check if the device is in flight mode.
  4. Restart the router to reset the internet connection. 
  5. Switch from WiFi to cable or vice versa. 
  6. If you can not resolve the connection problems yourself, contact your internet service provider. 

If the internet connection is running smoothly, proceed with the next section. 

Online platform C-sar is temporarily unavailable

A local network environment is suppressing the connection

If your company uses a firewall to restrict access to internet domains, you will need to allow the Cropster domain. Please whitelist * to ensure unrestricted data stream between RI and the online platform.

Alternatively, try to change the network by connecting your PC to the internet via a mobile hotspot. If the sync starts working when connected via the mobile hotspot or via a different network, the issue refers to a problem within your local network. Please reach out to your network administrator or service provider to resolve the issue.

A corrupted roast file is blocking the outbox

If you can rule out the potential causes above, is is likely a corrupted roast file is causing the syncing issue. This file will then be stuck in your local outbox, preventing subsequent roasts from syncing.
