I did not get the simserver prompt. How come?

When running Jumpseat for the first time, some users may not get the network request to allow simserver through the network. This is likely due to some antivirus programs removing the simserver dependency before it has a chance to run. If this happens to you:

  • Uninstall Jumpseat.
  • Disable your antivirus program temporarily.
  • Install Jumpseat & run it for the first time.
  • Re-enable your antivirus.
I didn’t receive a verification email. What do I do?

The email likely went to your SPAM folder. The subject line for that email is Verify Account - Jumpseat Media. Check spam, and if you still can't find it, contact us on Discord and we'll get you sorted.
