LiveChat with a Technical Support representative
The LiveChat feature enables you to connect with a Technical Support representative to solve a simple issue or need clarification on how N-able N-central works. When connected, you can either log a ticket, review KB articles or chat directly with a Support representative.
To start a LiveChat session, click on the LiveChat icon in the top right-hand corner of the N-able N-central user interface, next to the Log Out and Help icons. Hover your mouse on the icon to see if there are Support representatives available to chat with.
To use LiveChat successfully:
- allow outbound access on ports 80 and 443 to either *.salesforceliveagent.com, or to the geo-specific IP ranges specified by SalesForce,
- ensure any pop-up blocker allows pop-ups from https://gfimax.secure.force.com/chat/.
You do not need to allow any additional inbound access to your N-able N-central server.
You can control who has access to the LiveChat using permissions. By default, the Default Administrator and Default Technician roles have LiveChat enabled in their Roles. The Access LiveChat permission is in the Administration section of the permissions options for a role.
When this permission is turned off, the LiveChat icon does not appear in the user interface.
