After starting the portable viewer (6508), i see my list of available computers. I'll pick one of them and it's shown as "online" - everything normal until here. Just after clicking on a computer (to open the remote control), it's shown as "offline" for about 5 secs. The connection will be established and i am able to see the host screen and do normal operations. Is that normal? Sometimes it delays for more than 5 secs...
Regarding this issue. Found a small bug that caused this behavior. So it was not normal, actually, I was mistaken. So we'll fix it in the upcoming version.
That is actually a correct behavior. If you connect through an internet-ID server, the Host is "invisible" for the Viewer. The ID server doesn't translate the IP address to the Viewer, and in most cases there is no point to do that - by definition the Internet-ID connection is used when you want to reach a remote computer located behind a router and/or firewall. Therefore, the IP address of the Host in this case will be the IP address of the router.
The file which is falsely detected is rutview.exe, it's the Viewer executable file. It can be found in C:\Program Files\Remote Utilities - Viewer\. You need to zip the file before uploading - the form doesn't allow files more than 10Mb to be attached.
