Situation
I was just about to use Driver Easy (Version 5.1.1.7383) to update drivers so that my computer could run quickly and smoothly without crashing so many times. All went on well until the“Unable to connect to the remote server” message popped out during scanning. What am I supposed to do?

Ping Error

If the error is caused by Ping error, try the following steps.

1) Press Win and type the command directly into the Metro interface (for Windows 10/8) or search bar (for Windows 7/Vista/XP). Instead, you could press Win+R and type cmd in the run box.

2) Type ping app.drivereasy.com and press Enter button If the ping command runs successfully, you will get the Execute Ping results screen like the screenshot below.

Antivirus/Firewall/VPN Error

If you happen to run antivirus, firewall or VPN on your computer, the chances of getting the “Unable to connect to the remote server” message while scanning is big. Some antivirus, firewall or VPN could build a barrier and cut the connection between Driver Easy and the driver database server or driver download server. Disable the antivirus, firewall or VPN while running Driver Easy.
