Hi there,

I wasn't sure where to send this to. There were recently some network changes in the office, one WLAN was turned off and another one switched on, which I am now using.

The upshot of it all is that pgld cannot be made to start, I have tried it via the command line and pglgui and I am told that the operation has [failed], but given no reason why...

Would someone be able to guide me through tracking down this problem as feeling very exposed to bad actors without this protection....
