    Hi Jim,

    I just checked, and the connection information in our database seems to be correct. The error you are getting is frequently caused by a proxy or firewall that stops Moneydance from connecting. Please check your network settings to be sure that your network is not blocking Moneydance.

    Please let me know if you continue to have problems connecting. Thanks for using Moneydance!

    I am switching from MS Money to MD, MS Money does not ask for an account number when connecting to Prudential so I left it blank. Since this was not working and MD uses Quicken standards I updated the account number in MD using the Quicken format (I found a PDF on the Prudential site that had instructions for setting up Quicken). This worked. Problem solved. The error message was a bit of a red herring though.

    Hi Jim,

    I'm glad you got it working. You're right about that error message being not quite accurate in this case. I'll mention that to the head developer.

    Please ;let me know if you have any more questions or problems.
