Glad it isn't just me. It's a real head scratcher because the same computer I am running the viewer on reaches the server, shows the remote admin panel with idle hosts, and I can login to the server through the viewer without a problem. Like I said, I am out of ideas for ways to check anything else that I haven't tried already.
Thanks Conrad, should have thought to do that. Below is what I get. I redacted the server info. It doesn't log anything about a viewer connection. I tried from multiple internet connections to test outgoing client port. Server is a dedicated static IP with DNS name and runs other services without a problem. No conflicting ports and I can latch 5655 & 5670 just fine. Remote admin works perfectly. Having trouble finding something else to rule out. I have gone through all the possibilities one the "connection problems" page as quite a few others. How can I troubleshoot further? Thanks for the help...
Date Code IP Event Info 23.03.2018---08:34:38:225 34 Host 68001 is started. Windows 6.3 64bit 23.03.2018---08:34:38:669 96 Internet-ID: Connection established ID: 298-826-618-805; Server: my.ruserver.com (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx); Port: 5655; Try count: 1
All newest version of the downloads and new installation. I am running RUServer and it all appears to be correct. Hosts show up on the server with the correct Internet-ID, I can connect to the server as admin from any client, 5655 & 5670 are reachable from the outside. All looks set to go.
When I configure a host computer it gives me an ID, blue dot, and shows up on the server as idle with the correct ID and name.
When I configure a client computer with the correct ID it shows as online. However, when I try to login it does not prompt for a password and immediately gets placed in the offline list. Ten seconds later it shows online again. No error messages.
I have gone through EVERYTHING I can thing of - turning firewalls off on both ends, no anti virus, etc. and looking for some new ideas. Probably missing something obvious but at this point I have NO idea what.
