Hi, is there any way to access a host computer when there is no monitor attached to it?  Are there any settings on either the host or viewer software that will allow this? I want to be able to access an old desktop computer but I don't want to commit a screen / monitor to it.  Thanks in advance.

Hello Peter,

Thank you for your message.

Could you please try enabling the Use legacy capture mode checkbox? You can find it in the Host settings -> Other tab. This way you should be able to see the remote Host desktop even with no monitor attached to the machine.

Hope that helps.

Thanks! That worked fine. One point though, I had to re-start the host software for it to work. Just one small extra step...  love this software !

Hello Peter,

I'm glad to hear it worked for you!

Yes, I'm sorry for that, I forgot to mention that the Host restart might be required. However, it's best to always restart the Host after any changes in the Host settings are applied.

Please feel free to post another message if you have more questions.
