Overview

You can run the Viewer executable file C:\Program Files\Remote Utilities - Viewer\rutview.exe using command line parameters.

Syntax

rutview.exe /name:connection_name /connection_mode /password:password optional_parameter1 optional_parameter2 optional_parameter3

Basic parameters

  • /name:connection_name — the connection name as it is specified in your address book.
  • /password:password — the Host access password. You don't have to use this parameter if the access password has already been saved in the properties for the selected connection.

Special parameters

  • /create — if the connection with this name or ID was not found, it will be created
  • /host:IP address or ID — used together with /create and allows you to specify the IP address or Internet ID for the connection which is about to be created
  • /port:port_value — used together with /create and allows you to specify the listening port for the Host (5650 by default)

Important!

If the connection name contains spaces, enclose the name with quotes (" ").
