If you can connect to SimUText and you have submitted some answers but can no longer see results in the Question Progress window, the application may be pointing to an old IP address. This can be resolved by clearing the DNS cache on your computer.
Use the appropriate command-line function for your computer platform to clear the DNS (domain name service) cache on your system.
