Tell us what you are trying to do?

I am getting an error:
"Toolset plugin cannot connect to
Toolset needs to connect to its server to check for new releases and security updates. Something in the network or security settings is preventing this. Please allow outgoing communication to to remove this notice.

Need help?

See the communication error details and let us know in Toolset technical support."

I do not use any external translation services - all our work is professional translated internally. I have NO need to connect to outside servers. Please help me eliminate any of these connections.

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

If you do not want ToolSet you can simply disable/deactivate it in plugins.

I DO NOT have this plugin. This is coming from WPML!!!

Please investigate why all of a sudden I am getting this.

I see that this plugin is by On The Go systems, the same company behind WPML.

Yes, Toolset is from us. from same company.

If you do not have Toolset installed and installed WPML plugins only you will not see such message.
I created a test site to make this sure.
You can go to hidden link
you will not see such message there as I installed WPML plugins only.

Please create a temporary admin user.
Let me know the username and password in the next private reply.
We will check this a bit deeper.

This is the page:

Actually - I do now have the message:
You are using an unregistered version of WPML and are not receiving compatibility and security updates
WPML plugin must be registered in order to receive stability and security updates. Without these updates, the plugin may become incompatible with new versions of WordPress, which include security patches.

I accidentally clicked on "This is a development/staging site". And the error is gone...
