Internet ID connection settings

An Internet-ID code is a 12-digit code assigned to a Host. The Internet-ID code acts as an address of the remote PC and enables you to connect to that remote PC through firewalls and NAT devices (routers).

Enabling Internet-ID

  1. Right-click the Host icon and select Internet-ID connection settings: Internet-ID item in the Host menu
  2. Click Get New ID: Internet-ID dialog
  3. A new ID will be generated for this Host: Internet-ID dialog with ID generated
  4. Copy the ID and close the window. You need to use this ID when adding a new record in the Viewer. Refer to the Connecting over the Internet page for details.

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