Other solution Step

Try the below steps.

--Checked the client status: offline
--Took the backup of the registry
-- Delete the following registry keys:
HKEY_USER\.DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections\DefaultConnectionSettings
HKEY_USER\.DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections\SavedLegacySettings
--Set the proxy enable in the registry to 0 under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
--Uncheck the proxy setting option in the internet options settings.
--Reboot the system.
--Check the client status : online/reporting to the server
