If you are having issues processing transactions through Toniq, you first need to know how you connect to FRCS. Retail connects to FRCS either using SoftSDC or connects directly to the FRCS website.
Examples of error messages you may see :-
TO FIND OUT IF YOU ARE CONNECTING DIRECTLY TO FRCS VMS PORTAL OR USING SOFT SDC
- From the main menu of Retail on the computer set up to do vms:
- 7 Administration, 1 Setup, 2 Workstation Configuration, 1 Device setup
- F11 Next Page Under VMS options look for Vms site
USING WEBSITE TO CONNECT TO FRCS:
- Check if you have Internet.
- Try to browse directly to the VSDC url (https://vsdc.vms.frcs.org.fj/) to see if you can connect to the webpage. If yes, then try to complete the transaction once again.
If you cannot browse to the website, contact FRCS. (Contact Centre: 7am-6pm | Hotline 1326 or Emails: email@example.com)
