    I'm having the same issue setting up Wells Fargo Advisors accounts online in Quicken Premiere 2020 (subscription). The message is "Oops. We're having a problem...unable to connect to the Quicken servers...do not contact Wells Fargo...try again later."

    This has been going on for days.
  • Hello @PMB_0295

    Thank you for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I do apologize for the issue you're having. I'm wondering if it may not be letting you in because we're not using direct connect. Could you try adding the account again through the Wells Fargo Advisors connection then selecting advanced options instead of next > Complete investing > Direct connect. From there you should be able to try signing in again. This should be a different connection method than the one you tried with previously that should hopefully let us through instead.


    Please let us know if this helps resolve the issue for you.

    Thanks,

    Quicken Francisco

    OK thanks for the response. I tried your instructions and got the error message:
    "Quicken is having trouble...Message from Wells Fargo Advisors: log into https:.../fmssetup to start the FMS setup process."

    Thanks for the update! I wasn't sure if advisors also required it but it is something that you need to do on WellsFargo's side to allow access to their servers. You can sign in by following the page they've sent or I'll also link it as well. www.wellsfargo.com/fmssetup.
    Once you've signed in try following the steps I posted again above or if you still have it open try connecting again. 

    Let us know how it goes!

    Thanks,

    Tried that as well. Received errors. Unable to access WFA for months now.

    Reporting back. Followed the instructions at www.wellsfargo.com/fmssetup and setting up the accounts online worked like a champ. All good to go now.

    Thanks for the help and good luck to those having the same issue!

    Good to hear you were able to get it working! If you do run into any other issues please let us know and we'll take another look!

    Thanks for letting us know. In your case it would be best to try contacting Wells Fargo Advisors as they're the ones with access to the server to figure out exactly why you're not able to sign in through Quicken. Given the length of time as well it sounds like there might be something blocking you from connecting as well. I'll leave Wells Fargo Advisors support link down below so you can find a time that works best.

    Hello @rkfoster7

    Thank you for the response and for providing more details.

    An "It's not your fault" error will require a contact to support for a review of the log files and possible escalation to resolve.

    When contacting support, be sure to let me know how long you have been receiving this error.
