Hello Rachel,

Make sure the user you are loging in has enough privilege level. Try with a priv 15 user or enable password by leaving username blank and entering enable password to password section.

The problem has been resolved now, it was due to the JAVA problem. it started working again after downgrade the java version.

Thanks you all

Kind regards
