In the modern client-server applications, the Browsers have kicked out the old fat UI clients. However, there were still some limitations, especially on the communication level preventing browsers to obtain smooth live updates from the server end. The WebSocket technology makes it possible now to have more interaction between the browser and the web server, facilitating live content update.
The result is that your kanban boards will come to live. Tasks are created, moved and updated in front of your eyes in a real time. Any change someone does around the globe will immediately be reflected to your open browser. This happens even in the background, while you are working on another task.
Note: To have the WebSockets running you need to access our websocket servers that are listening on port 444.
wss://wssus.kanbanize.com:444 and so on.
If these are not accessible from inside your network, talk with your IT to white list us and enable the 444 port on your firewall.
A temporary workaround would be to use the old mechanism of having the browser automatically refresh the whole board on each 30 seconds. To switch this on, check the following article!
