What is the address/location of the RU public server for latency testing?

I don't know what additional access I can have to the PC, but you can move this thread to ticket and I'll try on a best effort basis to collect some info.  I don't want to muck with their screen/display settings, sorry.

Viewer and host running Win10. The windows login screen has a random wallpaper that comes through with high quality. It looks like the relay I'm using is on US west coast and ping times are 32ms.  So it doesn't look like latency issue.

What is the address/location of the RU public server for latency testing?

I occasionally use RU to login to headless machines every few months as needed.  When I logged into a few machines the last few days, the responsiveness has been very bad.  It makes it hard to enter passwords and other things when there is like 3-5 second delay between key press and when it appears on screen.  I've NEVER experienced lag so bad, and I regularly use TV with 2 RDP sessions.

I'd like to know the IP of the public server or at least the location so I know whether I can setup my own server closer and get better speeds.  I have a bunch of Windows servers but they have 80ms round trip latency.  

If I was a paid Mini Operator, does that get faster relay speed than if using free license?

Thanks

Could you please elaborate more on this issue, what unblocking do you mean? By the way, you can also download files separately from the same page (Viewer, Host etc.).

Hmm, looks like my bad.  I just re-downloaded the full .zip package and couldn't reproduce the issue. Basically, what I saw before was that I unblocked the .zip (through the file's Properties), but still got the Windows pop up that the file may not be safe for the individual .msi's. My conclusion is that when I thought I unblocked the .zip prior to unzipping the msi's, it didn't actually.

So ignore that.  PEBKAC

In the Viewer and Host, Help->About says:

Version: 6.4.0.2 beta 2

Why call it beta 6.5 if its beta 6.4? That's confusing if its not a bug.

Also, you should "unblock" (windows protection) the msi files before you zip them up. It should only be necessary for the downloader to unblock the .zip, and not have to do it for the individual files as well.

Edit: Just saw that you responded on Aug 17th that this versioning is expected.  My 2 cents, DON'T.  Just call it a 6.4 BETA and stable release as 6.5.  I'm not aware of any other company/software that does beta versioning like this.  You're just asking for confusion by having mismatched version strings.
