Internet lost/403 error?

Hi, I went to install bcrypt and after when I go to open node_modules folder it says workspace internet was lost, so I connect again and it gives me a 403 error.. any ideas??


I had the same problem. What I did to make it work is that I,

  1. Uninstalled the bcrypt in the command with - npm uninstall bcrypt
  2. Install the bcrpytjs in the command - npm install bcryptjs
  3. Refresh and see if it works to open the folder without that the internet will be lost

Hope that this helps!

I also had the problem that Workspaces showed a message that it lost connection to the internet. I tried to uninstall bcrypt but it lost connection during that process, so I had to go to workspaces and delete the one manually. After that I launched a new Workspace and installed bcryptjs instead, and it works fine for me.
