Due to strict firewall rules MFT may not be able to get permanent MFT license or add additional features by clicking "Refresh". This also impacts the ability of the dashboard to grab "NEWS &TIPS"
Allow the GoAnywhere server access to my.goanywhere.com and goanywhere.com
The external IP address 188.8.131.52 (port 80) or goanywhere.com is needed for the news feed on the dashboard (which can be removed from dashboard) in MFT.
Additional Info on licensing issues:
Due to more than one IP address being accessed for online product licensing, the use of the domain name is recommended instead of IPs. The ports accessed are port 80 and 443
For older versions, the address 184.108.40.206 (port 80) or linoma.com may be needed to check for updates.
If still unable to get the New and Tips dashboard gadget to populate, but can browse to all Goanywhere.com sites mentioned above look to see if a trust anchor error is present.
