Why can't I connect to THWACK from my NPM?

This topic applies to all Orion Platform products.

Your Orion server must be able to open internet connections to connect to THWACK. If the connection is blocked by a firewall or a proxy the list of shared pollers cannot be retrieved from THWACK, and any operation that relies on communication with THWACK, such as the upload or download of a poller will fail.

Check your firewall and proxy settings to make sure that your Orion server can connect to the internet.
