Unable to connect to the Control Room.

This may be due to multiple reasons. To continue, please 1. Check to see if you have network connectivity 2. Check to see if you are connected to your VPN Then, try to run the bot again.

If you continue to see this message, please contact your system administrator.

Restart Bot agent service.

Execute the diagnostic tool to identify any error related with proxy or websocket.
