I am not able to connect to StarToken; it says "Check your internet connection" even though I am connected to Internet?

Since the message to check your Internet connection and the one for Proxy settings error are clubbed together, we have to deal with it a little patiently.
  • Are you getting this message after double clicking the StarToken.exe or after providing User ID?
  • If the message appears right after double clicking the StarToken.exe, then please make sure that you are connected to Internet. You may be accessing Internet from behind proxy please make sure that you enter proxy settings in StarToken.
  • If you are connected to Internet, then it may be some temporary issue with ISP or BOIS Network -You should try again after some time.
  • Another possibility is that you may be within Proxy environment. Please enter the Proxy Credentials (IP, PORT, User ID, and Password) and try again.
  • If the message appears after entering User ID, then this could be due to the Antivirus program installed on your computer.
    • You should add StarToken.exe to the exclusion list of the Antivirus/Firewall program installed on your personal computer.
    • You should give StarToken 'Total (Full) access' in the application rules of the Firewall settings of the Antivirus program installed on your personal computer.

I am getting the message, 'Unable to create Secure Desktop'. What does it mean?

It means that you are running too many or a few very heavy applications in the background. Please try by closing some applications. StarToken requires some free memory to perform its own operations.

I am getting the message "Unable to connect to Bank of India servers. Please check your Internet Connection and try again."

This error can occur due to one of the following reasons. Please see below for troubleshooting steps for each.
  • The machine is not connected to the Internet
    • Please check your internet connectivity by typing www.boi.com.sg in your regular browser.
  • The machine is behind a proxy
    • Please check your proxy settings. Ask your administrator for details of the proxy server IP and port as well as a user name/password if required. Once you have entered your proxy settings, check whether IE browser can load www.boi.com.sg
  • The machine has a Firewall or AntiVirus that is blocking the connection
    • You will have to whitelist internet traffic from StarToken application to port 443 in the AnitVirus or Firewall. Since StarToken data is encrypted, the AV/Firewall cannot understand it and may block the connection. Please refer to your AV/Firewall documentation or customer service on how to allow traffic for "unknown protocol" to port 443.
  • The machine is on a LAN which has a firewall which blocks the connection
    • If you do not have a AV/Firewall or have already white listed it, please ask your network administrator whether the office uses a firewall which blocks the traffic. They may have to white list StarToken traffic to BOI G/W server, port 443 for unknown protocol.

Why have I received an OTP on my mobile even though I have not requested for one. What should I do?

OTPs are sent to customers registered mobile phones in case they are attempting to use a new device to login to StarToken or resetting the StarToken PIN. If the user believes they have not requested for an OTP but have yet received one, it may be due to one of the following reasons:
  • Some other user has incorrectly registered your mobile number as theirs.
  • Someone is attempting to use your user id to login to StarToken from their computer. This could either be an unintended error in typing the user id or it may be a fraudster attempting to login to your account. StarToken is designed to protect against such attacks, by requiring the fraudster to provide the OTP sent on your registered mobile to gain access to the accounts. Hence it is important that you do NOT share the OTP sent to you with anyone on the phone, over email or any website.
