Hello Keith,

We are going to release the fix tomorrow, but if you like, you can already test it out. Please, send a message to support@remote-utilities.com and I'll send you a new Viewer exe. You will just need to replace the existing Viewer exe (rutview.exe) in the Viewer installation folder. Hosts are not affected by this bug.

Hello Anne,

You are right, it's a different problem. This problem is caused by our migration to another (more modern) key input mechanism.

However, it seems that we should also keep the option to switch to older (previously used) key input/transfer mechanism just for such occasions.  Some older applications as in this case may experience problems with accepting key input the new way.

So in the upcoming hotfix we'll add an option to switch to legacy key input so you will be able to enable that option in Viewer connection properties for that specific machine.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Running Host and Agent simultaneously possible?

Hello Trent,

Thank you for your questions.

So I am wondering, is it possible to run the Agent simultaneously with the Host?

No, the Agent won't be running simultaneously with the Host. However, you don't necessarily have to have the remote user uninstall the Host. They can simply stop Host using the right-click menu ("Stop Host" item). Once the Host has been stopped, they can run the Agent.

Note that the Agent will have different access credentials and other settings than the Host because the two programs keep their settings in registry entries/keys and can co-exist on the same computer.

If no, what would be the recommended best practices for walking a user through granting access through a Host without disturbing the existing configuration (assuming they are already using Single Password)?

If they need to change authorization settings for the installed Host, they must run "Settings for Host" and navigate to Authorization:



There are different ways to access the Host settings:

1. Right click on the running Host icon in the system tray and select "Settings for Host".

2. Windows Start menu -> Remote Utilities Host -> Settings for Host.

3. Using command line option: rutserv.exe /config

With the last two options you can open the settings without the Host service actively running.  

Hope that helps.

Certains keys and key combinations not working in 6.10.2.0 for me

Hello Trent,

Interestingly it appears that downgrading the Viewer is the best workaround for the moment. The 6.9.4.0 Viewer appears to be forward compatible with 6.10.2.0 hosts (at least for basic remote control... I have not tested other functionality such as file transfer, chat, voice and video, etc).

It is. Deep inside these two versions are much closer to each other than to 6.8.0.1.

Hello Trent,

Thank you for the report. Yes, it's a known bug which was reported yesterday. We will release a quick fix (6.10.3.0) in a couple of days. Meanwhile, we'll be testing your reported key combinations as well.

Let us know if you find anything else.

Agent 6.10 file size

Hello Dave,

As compared with version 6.8 yes, the sizes became bigger. Mostly because we stopped using a specific sfx technology, added openssl encryption etc.

Hello Thierry ,

This error means that the Host cannot connect to the intermediary relay server. There should be other errors in addition to that one. Could you please send us the complete log at support@remote-utilities.com.

Thanks.

Hi Thierry ,

Steps to fix connectivity issues (or rather pointers that help understand where to look at) are available in our knowledge base:

Cannot connect using Internet-ID connection
Cannot connect using direct connection

The primary source where to look at whenever you have any connectivity issues is the  Host log. Does it have any errors?

Hello Alex,

Whenever you or anyone else has intermittent connectivity issues with Remote Utilities please note that there are two primary reasons that may apply:

1. Antivirus software or a firewall.
2. Network configuration problems (such as a faulty or incorrectly setup router, or TCP/IP configuration issues on the computer, or DNS issues etc.).

Ever since upgrading

Hello John,

Thank you for your message.

It looks like the host lost connectivity with our intermediary server. We need to examine the Host log to know for sure. You can find the Host logs in the Host installation directory .

Feel free to zip the logs and send them over to us at support@remote-utilities.com
