Hi PA,

By zip file you mean this one, the main "package" on the download page, correct? This is in fact just Viewer and Host zipped in a single file for convenience. You can as well download them separately below on the page.

Anyway, we'll take a look and contact Symantec regarding this issue.

This has already been implemented:

Self-hosted server solution page , see "Sync server role" section.

Also, you refer directly to the tutorial in the documentation about how to set up sync:

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the suggestion. Did you try the Send message connection mode? Or are you looking for something else?

It is this very forum .  We review user suggestions on a regular basis and many of them end up being included into our roadmap and sometimes even into our immediate development plans.

Need to change Internet ID

Hi James,

Starting version 6.5 an Internet-ID code is unique for each PC. It is always the same. For backward compatibility, if you upgrade older Hosts to the new version their Internet ID is not changed so that you can still connect to them using the old ID. However, once you manually change the ID on those Hosts it will change to a new value and will stick to that value from then on.

BTW, let me explain what happened in the situation described by the initial post in this thread. We resolved this through the tickets and the problem was the machines were cloned after the ID was generated. The Internet ID code is stored in the Host settings in Windows registry. If you install the Host, then generate the Internet ID and then clone the machine, of course you clone everything including the Internet ID code.

So the proper way to do that is to clone the machine after you install the Host but before you generate the ID. In other words,the ID should be generated once the machine is deployed.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Hello Paul,

Yes, indeed strange. Maybe we can have a remote session then then next time you are in front of your Host PC? Could you please send a support ticket and I'll instruct you further.  

Thanks and Happy New Year!

The remote connection is slowing down and stands?

Hello John,

Thank you for your post.

Remote Utilities is slow because of their own servers that translate the ID's they provide to find the other remote servers (via internet) .... its so slow to the point that it doesn't even work.

question is:::::: what is the point to this software if you cannot even connect ?

If none of our free license users and paid customers couldn't connect, then we would have apparently been flooded with complaints here on this forum and in the tickets and refund requests sent to our Sales department.  No one would have paid for software that doesn't work, especially corporate customers.

They obviously have not upgraded their servers or even consider to support their users.
they expect us to upgrade to a paid version for a service that doesn't even work.

Sorry, but this is not true. Our free license has no limitations in terms of server access or bandwidth. If connection is poor then it's a technical problem which must be troubleshooted and resolved, and not a licensing problem.

We are interested in making the free version work well, that's why we don't apply any limits except the 10-PC limit.  Our servers are monitored in terms of their load and bandwidth , and they are far from reaching their limit even at peak hours.

I dont think Remote Utilities even cares about their users to be honest, they keep blaming the public for their problem when obviously 100% without a doubt it's their servers.

We do not blame anyone. We just look at the specifics of each case and try to investigate the problem.

Is remote utilities planning on upgrading their servers to support their current users ?

Our servers (both software and hardware) can handle 100x more connections that they do now. But they are currently focused on US and Canada, and we have plans to expand to Europe and other continents soon.

Could you please tell us where your Viewer and Host are geographically located? What program version do you use on both sides? Finally, send us the Host logs - you can find them in C:\Program Files\Remote Utilities - Host\Logs\ - this can help us see what's going on with your connection.

If you have an outdated version (i.e. earlier that 6.5.08) it is recommended that you upgrade first. Then, if the problem persists, send us the logs.

Hello Bob,

I'm sorry, but not in this release. However, this feature has every chance to make its way into the next 6.6 update.
