This blog post is the first in the series of posts that highlight the most prominent new features added in version 6.5.
We have significantly changed the way the statuses are displayed in the Viewer address book. Previously, for Internet-ID connections you couldn’t easily tell whether the remote PC was online and ready for connection and now you can. Below you can learn what each status means.
LOGGED ON status
This status means exactly the same as in previous versions – that you have been connected to (and authorized on) the remote Host. You may or may not be actively using any of the available connection modes.
When a connection is in the LOGGED ON state, just double-click on it to immediately start a Full Control session without entering your password. Or, you can right-click on the icon and select another connection mode to start:
Note: Do not confuse Remote Utilities “logon” with Windows logon, as these are two different and unrelated things. You may be logged on a Remote Utilities Host but still not be logged on in Windows on that remote PC. The Host works as a system service and doesn’t require a Windows user to sign in on the remote machine.
