IPS Connect issue in Help & Support Posted December 1, 2017 It took me a few hours but I found a fix. I changed storage method to File System and it started working. Then I changed it back to Database and it is still working.....at least for now. I think the "Something is not working" option in Support should take care of this problem. It should clear whatever needs to be cleared in the datastore for IPS Connect to stop communicating with slaves if no slaves are defined.
