You Can Fix the “Private Connection” Error!

Read This First! If you can see the pictures on this page and can open Blackboard on a Branson school laptop, your Branson laptop is all good and you don’t need to apply this fix.

IF YOU RECEIVE AN ERROR IN CHROME OR CANNOT SEE THE IMAGES ON THIS PAGE, YOU MUST APPLY THIS FIX ASAP.

The good news is that the corrective steps you need to take are very simple and will only take about 5 minutes.   We are confident that you can do this yourself, but if you need help, please email us at techsupport@bransonschoolonline.com and we’ll help you out.

In a nutshell, you’ll need to download a file onto the Branson laptop, then run the file.

Note #1: These steps must be done in Firefox. Chrome will not allow all of the steps to take place.

Note #3: You only have to do these steps once.
