Great! Seems like some "link in the chain" required rebooting for applying the settings.
Anyway, if you ever need help with this issue, don't hesitate to post on the forum or submit a support ticket. Thanks!

GMS is always about Internet ID connection. It's just a self-hosted replacement for our hosted Internet ID servers, and is entirely optional.
Direct connection by definition does not use any intermediary servers. It's a plain Viewer -> Host connection where the IP address (or DNS name) of the Host is used. Whereas an Internet ID connection always looks like this:
Viewer -> Default (our company's) intermediary server -> Host
Have you changed the custom server IP address to the DNS name on both sides, i.e. Viewer and Host?
This needs to be clarified. In the Host settings a custom GMS server is a global setting. Whereas in the Viewer you need to specify it for each remote connection that you want to route via your GMS. You can, of course, mass-edit them by selecting multiple records or use Default Connection properties for newly created connections.
Yes. Nothing changes except that you now use the DNS name in the "Internet ID settings -> Advanced -> Custom server" on both sides (Viewer and Host) + the no-ip client installed on the GMS server. You only need to make sure that your DNS name resolves to your current IP address properly, but that depends on the No-ip client software.
Perhaps, you just need to use a service like no-ip.com. It's free from what I know. Generally, here's what you need to do:
1. Register with no-ip.com and create your own DNS name. 2. Install the No-ip client program on your GMS computer so that it regularly updates your DNS record with new IP address when it changes. 3. IMPORTANT: use your DNS name in the Host and Viewer settings for the custom Internet ID server (replace the IP address with your DNS name).
With this trick you won't have to change Viewer or Host settings each time your GMS IP address changes.
" I was wondering if there is any possible way to disable the final popup that states "Software installed... sending e-mail... confirm?" Another words, I'd like the installer to be COMPLETELY silent. Is this possible?
If the option "Generate ID and send it via e-mail" is enabled, then the warning message is shown. This is a necessary security precaution against using Remote Utilities without the remote person knowing they are being controlled/watched.
However, if you do not use that option, the warning message is not shown. But you will need to generate and note down the Internet ID of the remote computer manually or with the help of someone at the remote side.
If what you need is spontaneous/ad hoc support rather than 24/7 unattended access to a remote PC, perhaps the Agent module will be more suitable. You can configure the Agent in the MSI Configurator too.
Is there any way to read the internet ID and send this along with the other data? I found the registry keys so I could probably do that. I guess I need to disable the e-mail feature though, but still generate the Internet ID. Is this possible?
I'm not sure if the Internet ID is stored in the registry explicitly. Nevertheless, I will ask our developers and get back to you soon.
