Viewer 188.8.131.52 Windows 10 Pro Host 184.108.40.206 Windows 10 Home OS Build 19043.1526
I am unable to direct connect to the host computer at this time. I receive the message "Failed to initialize authentication process Attempts left: 5." I had direct connected in the past with this viewer and host. I have other computers on my home network that I can direct connect. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the viewers and host. I have checked ports on the host computer. I added the 5650 port to the host computer. I tried changing port numbers in the host and viewers. I am able to do an Internet-ID connection to the host within my home network, but there is significant lag. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks! Chris
