After installing the beta Viewer, I upgraded one of my hosts on my LAN using the "Update outdated hosts" tool. I encountered several issues: - the host does not start after upgrade, so I was not able to reconnect to the host. Luckily it was on my LAN, so I used VNC to connect to it and start the host - That's when I discovered that the connection password has been wiped and it was blank so I still could not connect, until I reset the password in the host preferences and restarted the host process. The above two issues make the remote upgrade process completely useless.
Could you clarify what the operating system on the Viewer and Host side was?
Host logs could also be helpful. You could send them to email@example.com , just refer to this thread in the subject or body of the message.
Another issue with the beta viewer: the toolbar in full control mode is 2 rows, where it was 1 row previously. Is that an intended permanent change? I would prefer it be a single row, but maybe give an option somewhere to toggle between 2 rows/ 1 row?
Hm, there's still 1 row and we never intended otherwise. Could you please send us a screenshot, or a link to screenshot uploaded elsewhere. You can send it to the support email address above if you don't want to make it public.
And another issue - I cannot connect to the RU Server from the Beta Viewer. I have not upgraded the RU Server yet.
You should upgrade the server too. Server beta has also been released together with RU.
Thank you for your feedback. Yes, indeed - generating ID and sending email don't work for Standard and One-click packages, and work for Agent only. We'll be checking this issue and fix it by the second beta coming soon.
Secondly, the version number for both the viewer and the host after install both indicate 22.214.171.124 (Host) and 126.96.36.199 (Viewer) rather than 6.5
That is correct. We are using 6.4.x.x as an interim version number until we make the final 6.5 release.
