For some reason when I type the password from the viewer to the host, it gives me "password is incorrect. Try again"  However, on my old computer I can type it just fine and the password is correct, and I checked the password on the host today.  What the heck is going on???

Hello Jennifer,

Thank you for your message.

Could you please clarify what version of the Remote Utilities do you use? If you use the 6.10.10.0 version, please try updating to the 6.12.1 beta version and see if the issue persists - we have implemented a fix for this issue in the 6.12 (beta 1) version of the program. It's available for the download here.

Please let us know if the issue persists.

Yay!  That worked!

I did find a work-around prior to the Beta version....I can bring up the on-screen keyboard and type the password in, and that worked!

Thanks!
