Right now the Settings protection feature does not prevent a user with the administrator rights from uninstalling the Host. However, I will forward this information to our development department and will ask for their input on this. Thank you for your input! I'll keep you updated.
Could you please, try resetting the Viewer's options and see if this helps to resolve the issue? In order to reset the Viewer options please do the following:
1. Fully exit the Viewer File -> Exit. 2. Locate the file config_4.xml in the C:\Users\[Your_username]\AppData\Roaming\Remote Utilities Files\ folder. Please note that the AppData folder might be hidden by default in which case you need to enable Hidden files and folders in Windows Explorer settings. 3. Remove the config_4.xml file from that folder. This will reset the Viewer settings. Your address books won't be affected by this action, but you will need to register the Viewer with your license key again. 4. Run the Viewer and see if the issue still persists.
If resetting the Viewer options did not resolve the issue, then could you please record a short video of the issue and send it to us to firstname.lastname@example.org? In addition, please let us know which version of the Remote Utilities is used.
Could you please clarify if you mean the respective columns in the Viewer's address book? If this is the case, please elaborate a bit more on what do you mean by the data do not seem to be persistent? Am I right in assuming that your suggestion is to transfer data from these columns to the RU Server's Admin Console?
The Last IP column shows the last IP address that was used by the given Host which is not necessarily the IP address of the Host computer itself. For Internet-ID connections, the Last IP address shows the IP address of the last used Internet-ID server, i.e. in this case - of the self-hosted server. Please note, that the private IP address is only shown in case if you use Direct connection within your LAN in order to connect to the remote Host, i.e. without an intermediary server. For more information on the column headings please refer to this Documentation page.
The issue might be caused by a slow internet connection, as the overall connection speed and performance are only as good as the slowest network segment between Viewer and Host. I have just tried connecting from mobile Viewer on the iOS device to the Host machine with the Color Depth settings set to different values - every value works perfectly fine on a good internet connection.
Could you please let me know if you use the Internet-ID connection method or Direct connection? If you already use Direct connection, please try enabling the Use legacy capture mode feature and see if it helps to resolve the issue. To enable the feature please do the following: 1. Right-click the Host icon in the system tray and select Settings for Host. 2. Navigate to the Other tab and enable the Use legacy capture mode checkbox. 3. Right-click on the Host icon and select Restart Host or simply restart the Host PC.
