Workstation won’t connect to Wintix server because of “Can’t get hostname” or “Can’t resolve hostname” error

(Last updated on: October 23, 2015)

  • On the Wintix server computer, find the file named my.ini
  • Double click on the file, which will open in Notepad
  • In the SERVER SECTION of that file, type the command string, skip-name-resolve, (as seen in the screen shot below- in yellow.)
  • Click on the red X at the upper right corner of that file
  • Say yes, or save, when it asks you if you want to save the changes you made.
  • Restart your mysql service
  • Then, go to the workstation, double click on the WintixV5 icon and you should get connection to the Wintix server
