Solution

This error message indicates that the "Long Name" of your user in Platinum does not conform to the RTI protocol. The "Long Name" needs to consist of a forename and a surname to pass the validation.

In the example above, the username for the Payroll Login has a name of 'PAYROLL'. 'John Smith' would be fine, but 'PAYROLL' or 'Everyone' will not do.

To correct this, you will need to change the 'Long Name' to be the name of the person that does the payroll. The 'User Code' can stay the same. For help on how to change these names, click here.

Error No 3 - (1046) - Authentication Failure. The supplied user credentials failed validation for the requested service.

Error 23; Connection failed

Closing connection to https://secure.gateway.gov.uk/poll
Submission failed

Solution

This error means that the submission to the Government Internet Gateway is being blocked.

This can be due to several issues:

  • Windows firewall is blocking the link - add exclusions to firewall.
  • Virus protection is blocking the link - add exclusions to your virus protection.
  • Ports being blocked on router - add rules into your router's port forwarding list.
  • You do not currently have an internet connection - seek advice from your internet service provider.

One quick test that you can try is to try the submission on another computer. This can often work as the blocks can be specific to a particular machine.
