Went to E File an extension on Drake could not get it to recognize my Internet Connection. After much trial and error, and after going through the Drake Troubleshooting checklist, I called support. Apparently, Drake changed some connection protocals this year. Would have been nice if they told us about the change, but so be it. If you have this problem, here is how to fix it:

Use Control Panel to get to Internet Options. Under Advanced, at the bottom, there are boxes for Use SSL and Use TLS. Uncheck all the Use SSL boxes and check all the Use TLS boxes and you should be good to go.

Only one year left before that ancient operating system is no longer supported.
