  • Strong internet connection with minimum download speed of 1.16 Mb/sec (150 KB/sec) per client connection (per user).
  • This is very important as reduced bandwidth will result in poor user experience!
  • A modern browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer 11
  • Test access to the exercise environment using the following link from the exact location where you will take the training course, and ensure that you receive a green or yellow rating (below 150ms latency): https://cloud.skytap.com/connectivity
  • We have included a link to our Connectivity Checker Assistant. You can use this guide to determine the best troubleshooting steps based on the issue you are experiencing, or the test results you have observed: http://help.skytap.com/#TM_Home.html
  • Take a moment to try each of the recommendations the Assistant suggests. If you are still experiencing connectivity issues, try using an alternate connection method (for example, if you are experiencing a Java-related issue or error, you might try establishing a connection with the HTML5 Connectivity Checker).
  • Our HTML5 Connectivity Checker can be found here.
  • Also, please ensure you meet Skytap's Access Requirements for each connection method: http://help.skytap.com/#Access_Requirements.html
