Hi @Jake_Toolson and welcome to our community :wave:,

This looks like a problem with an incorrect ENV_SECRET.

Did you get an error when you ran the command php artisan forest:setup-keys during the onboarding ?

Hi @nicolasa - I received no error when generating the keys. They are in my .env file. The FOREST_ENV_SECRET matches what I see in the https://app.forestadmin.com/distro/settings/environments/details/Development page.

I just tried this morning, it it appears to be connecting :slight_smile: No idea why now haha.
