Hi, new to RemoteUtilities.
I'm using the free version and have the RU Server and Host running on the same PC.
These seem to work properly and the ID can be regenerated without issue.
The HOST gets the ID and is "Ready for connection" Port 5655 has been forwarded and confirmed open using "Canyouseeme.org". Further I have added a local direct connection which works fine and I can remote in, no problem.

When trying to connect over the Internet the Log file on the Viewer end has the following information:

VIEWER: I have connection Security enabled with "Single Password Security"

HOST: I have Internet-ID PIN turned off, Authorization Method"Single Password - enabled" the rest are Disabled.

I have removed the Single Password and get the same error:

Please help as I'm running out of ideas.

Thanks for reviewing...

Hello Claudio,

Thank you for your message.

I have removed the Single Password and get the same error

Please note, that you need at least one authorization method enabled in order for connection to be established. If no authorization method is enabled, you will not be able to connect to this Host as there are no technical, blank or default passwords for security reasons. Here's a relatable Documentation article that might be helpful: https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/docs/security/

Before we proceed to further troubleshooting, please try referring to this troubleshooting guide and see if it helps to resolve the issue.

Let us know if the issue persists.

Thanks Polina for you reply.
The first log in the post is with Single Password enabled on the HOST and VIEWER.
Also, I did go through the troubleshooting guide with no results, still cannot connect.

Hello Claudio,

Thank you for the clarification.

In this case, could you please send us the entire Host log file for examination? Here is how to locate the Host logs: https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/docs/host-log/
Also, please attach the Server log files. Server logging is enabled by default, here's how to locate them:  https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/docs/server-log/
Please send the log files to support@remote-utilities.com.

Looking forward to your reply.
