Transport ping and Genius ping are transaction servers. For transactions to function properly, both of these tests must pass.
• The Genius device sends an RDMS ping to a download server. If the RDMS ping fails, your device may be able to run transactions, but it will be unable to receive updates or downloads.
• If any of these tests fail, ensure the ports are open to allow the Genius device to correctly communicate with our servers.
