A common error when a new user or workstation is set up on Sage 100 (formerly MAS90 & MAS200) or Sage 100cloud occurs when the end user receives the error message “Connection failure to host” upon trying to launch any task within the ERP software.  In order to fix this error, the users account preferences must be changed by following these 5 simple steps.
