Hello Zsolt,

Sorry for the late reply. Seems like there was a glitch with the forum/notifications and your message was missed.

Are you connecting over a local network or over the Internet?

Unable to Connect

Hello Ken,

Thank you for your message.

If you are connecting directly over your local network, please check the port number in the settings for connection. It should be the same listed in the Host settings (5650 by default).

Still, we'll soon update the mobile version because there are couple of minor issues with Android that were recently reported and confirmed.

Viewer Improvements

Hi Bobby,

Thanks for the suggestions. My comments are below.

Mouse over feature on Thumbnail view to see Firewall status/Update status/User that is logged in/Version of windows installed/last PC Restart Time.

We are planning to add this at some point in the future, albeit not as a mouse-over, but a panel/pane in its own right that you could turn on and off in the Viewer.

Broadcast a single message to all Connected PC'S or grouped PC's, have it displayed as a Windows message, not a chat message ( maybe a number of seconds to show message)

Broadcast message is already implemented. Just select multiple records and use the "Send message" connection mode.

Obviously the blank user screen and have the HTML page show while screen is blanked is awesome and still have capture alpha blending.

The blank screen mechanism will be re-written very soon.

Save notes to PC.

This is already available. See connection Properties -> Additional Properties -> Comment.

User end to press keys (ex: ctrl + H for help ) and it alert viewer that this PC needs help. Have a special group at the top to display that PC and be able to connect to it.

This is a part of a broader issue of the remote user having the ability to "call back" the technician. Due to the program's "decentralized" nature (there is no central web server) and also the fact that there may be many admins/technicians /users who can remotely connect to a certain PC it's not clear yet how specifically this feature should be implemented. We will give it a careful thought first.

These features I would just pay for lol but like i said i use 3 different remoe access programs because each give great feautes i need. Be nice to use just 1

Nothing bad about using multiple tools  :)  After all, in a mission-critical environment and/or when a remote PC is many miles away it's better to duplicate remote access with different tools, just in case.

I have no submitted a ticket because i thought it was due from connection being dropped. This all started from the 6.0 upgrade which worked the first few days then after it started giving the error. Yes the access denied bug i have, which is prob due for failure of file transfer.

By the way, are both Viewer and Host version

Hello Bobby,

1) This is most likely caused by the "access denied" bug reported here. We're working on it.

2) This is something new. Did you submit a ticket on this? Again, if there is a bug with authorization (item #1), then it may also affect the file transfer mode.

ETA on the 6.1 update is the first half of February.

Hello Larry,

2. When I start a session I have to next click in the screen to give it focus

This issue is confirmed by testing. We'll try to fix it in the nearest updates.

6.0 Arrow Keys not working

Conrad Sallian, Administrator (Posts: 1789)

Hello Larry,

We couldn't reproduce this issue. We even tried to connect from a virtual machine deployed on one PC, to a virtual machine deployed on another PC. And all the keys and arrow keys work. Num pad also works as it should.

Perhaps, it's a keyboard or driver issue. If you have another keyboard could you plug it in for a while and see if the issue persists?

Try to create a new connection in the Viewer instead of editing the existing one. After all the direct connection by an IP address is the simplest connection method possible. If you still cannot connect, please carefully check this list  

Viewer and RU server on the same PC.

We do not recommend doing this if the Viewer is a laptop that you often take with you somewhere. The RU Server works as an intermediary and should be available by its external IP address. However, if you are with a laptop and change networks your IP address will also change.

Finally , if you are the only user and only have a couple of PCs to control, you don't even have to bother with configuring RU Server. It's an advanced option for larger setups/organizations. You can perfectly go with the default ID service or (if you control your router) you can set up direct connection through port forwarding and get the maximum performance.

Do you have both Viewer and Host on the same local network?

Is there any fallback mechanism when host is not able to reach local RU server, then it try to connect different ( RU server?

No, due to the program design, there is no fallback mechanism. You need to manually change the ID server setting in the Host settings if you need to.

Hello everyone,

Let me answer your questions.

Todoay, i tried many times to be connected to the opposite direction (from offfice 2 to office 1)and it was impossible, even after firewall deactivated.What might be the cause.

So long as you use ID connection, the firewall has nothing to do with it. Please, check this KB article to troubleshoot connection issues with ID :

At first, something should be clarified to my point of view. I think that changing the roles for a PC from local to remote and vice versa whenever it's required,there shouldn't be any problem.Is it so?

There are two main modules of the software - Viewer and Host, and each plays its only role. Any PC can be both a Viewer and a Host at the same time, of course. The modules do not interfere.

After that connection issues have nothing to do with RU software but only with the internet setting and security software.

If you have been successfully connecting before and all of a sudden a connection no longer works, then yes - it may have something to do with security software. For example, your antivirus software signature database may update and start detecting RU as malware. Just an example.

Viewer is reporting my PC as "offline".
When I try to login manually, viewer tries to login (It took more time as when remote PC is really offline), but after few seconds of displaing LOGON status go back to offline.

I can see my remote PC in the RU server idle connection's list.

Please, check the same KB article I referred to above. Also, make sure that your antivirus software treats the Viewer well, or better just add the Viewer installation path to the exception list in your antivirus program.

Is it problem with license? I cannot register my host using viewer because I cannot log into it

If your Host trial is over you won't be able to connect in a connection mode (like Full Control). However, you 'll be able to simply log in using the "Login" feature in the Viewer. After you log in, use the "Register remote Host" right-click menu item to transfer your license remotely.

By the way, in the version 6.1 update we'll remove "Host registration" altogether. The Host will become a free module. All license management will be done in the Viewer.
