Support level: Free or trial
I installed Remote Utilities Host and Viewer so I can remotely login from work/home to home/work.
I can connect fine (Full Control) but after a few minutes the connection hangs and I can only see the desktop but cannot select anything.
I don't see any other way to reset the connection than closing it and reconnect again. Then after a few minutes it hangs again.

What could be wrong?

P.S. I had no such issue with T V.

Hello Paul,

I recommend that you check antivirus software on the remote computer and add Remote Utilities - Host to a/v software exceptions. This article can help https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/kb/remote-utilities-is-mistakenly-detected-as-malware/
