Hi @cbraddy , welcome to the forums!
Could you make sure that you have whitelisted the * domain? This is the domain controlling the Output.
Hope this helps!

Is that something that can be done on firewalled replit? That is the only one our district allows us to use.

I too am seeing the same issue on

The reason is that the domain, which controls the output is blocked for you. As long as it is blocked, the output window cannot be accessed.

I just talked to our tech people in the district, it is and always has been whitelisted so there must be another problem. Do you know what it could be?

It seems like there’s a different underlying issue here, rather than a DNS/firewall one.

I too am seeing the same error using the firewalledreplit domain, no output with the same error

I am getting this error on two separate devices using unfiltered network connections as well.

So is it something replit needs to fix? If so, how to I make that happen?

As I said, there’s some different underlying issue here, unrelated to DNS/firewalls.

You’ll have to wait on staff to respond and fix the issue, not much you can do besides that.


Thank you. Hoping for the best!
