I picked up a Motorola Luge for some testing. I plugged it into my Mac and it launched Motorola Device Manager. The device manager appears to check for updates (I presume for both the program and the device, but I'm not sure either guess is correct).

Motorola Device Manager is failing with the error message "An Internet connection cannot be established". Obviously, the Mac is online and the Internet connection works because I'm asking this question.

Similar questions provide disingenuous answers, like "make sure you have an internet connection". See, for example, Why won't my Motorola Device Manager connect to the internet?.

How do I fix Motorola Device Manager? Or how do I troubleshoot it?


The error message appear below in the lower left hand corner.

It appears the software is broken out of the box and it cannot be fixed. It's trying to connect to the host www.mymotocast.com, but it can't find the path or there is no server listening:

And:

$ openssl s_client -connect www.mymotocast.com:443
connect: Operation timed out
connect:errno=60

$ nslookup www.mymotocast.com
Server:     192.168.1.1
