The Internet-ID dialog is where you set or change the settings for an Internet-ID connection, including the Internet-ID code and Internet-ID server.

Enabling Internet-ID

Internet-ID dialog with ID generated

4. Copy the Internet-ID code and close the window. You need to use this Internet-ID code when adding a new connection record in the Viewer address book. Refer to the Connecting over the Internet page for details.

You don't have to generate an Internet-ID code each time you connect to this Host. Once generated, the ID stays the same unless you manually re-issue it in the Internet-ID settings.

3. Click OK and close Internet-ID connection settings window.

Setting a PIN-code

If you enable the PIN-code feature on your self-hosted server, you must enable PIN on the Host side as well and specify the server PIN-code in the Host settings as shown below:

Set PIN code

If you do not specify the PIN-code or if it's incorrect, the Host will not be able to successfully connect to the server (unless you disable PIN on the server side).

The PIN-code feature is used as additional "light-weight" protection against unknown Hosts being accidentally or purposefully connecting to your server and using it as an intermediary for their own remote sessions.
