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.

Selecting Internet-ID Server
This is where you can specify your self-hosted server to be used for an Internet-ID connection instead of our public (default) servers.
1. In the Internet-ID settings window click Advanced and select Select Internet-ID server:
2. Clear the Use default server check box and specify your self-hosted server IP address or DNS name. If you use a different port for your RU Server, also specify the port. Learn more about server ports.
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:
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 accidentally or purposefully connecting to your server and using it as an intermediary for their own remote sessions.
