I also got disconnected from the Lab once with the error message "connection dropped..." Are there any
issues with the network on your side?

Thanks and regards!


  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us. I also am finding some issues getting to and working with the lab. I have sent a message to the infrastructure support team with this information. I will let you know as soon as I hear something back.
