How to Check Which InScribe Server You Are Connecting To

This article explains how to check for which InScribe server an MT is connected to.

When an MT reports having connection issues in InScribe, they may be experiencing symptoms such as (but not limited to) the following:

1. MT receives a "Trouble connecting to InScribe" error.

2. MT is unable to download or send jobs.

3. MT is unable to load the login window to type in credentials.

In the process of reporting connection or server issues, it is very important and helpful to know which InScribe server an MT is connected to. This allows the helpdesk and operations teams to more quickly determine if there is a server-wide issue that must be repaired.
