Note: The most convenient and future-proof way to get the App and all games working is just to whitelist *.teachergaming.com ports 80 and 443 (http, https)

If this doesn't solve your issues and you need help with a proxy server please refer to our other help article at http://help.teachergaming.com/teachergaming-desk/can-i-use-proxy-settings-with-teachergaming-app!

Content Blocker

Some content blockers might stop the app from downloading a game and can corrupt game downloads (especially large games, like Cities Skylines). This will cause the game not to launch from the App. If you are using content blocker at your school, please try allowing TeacherGaming App in your content blocker or try disabling the content blocker while the game is being downloaded.

Log files

TeacherGaming App records run.log and localServer.log files that keep track of events. If there's an issue, the log-files can be used to figure out what's wrong. 

You can find the log files

  • On Windows under %APPDATA%\Roaming\TeacherGaming 
  • On Mac under Library/Application Support/TeacherGaming

If you run into issues that aren't solved by the articles, please attach the log-files with your support request to speed up the process.
