host icon does not appear on desktop after installing host

Hi Peter,

No, you don't have to go anywhere to activate it, of course. The host should run upon installation and even restart is not needed in most cases.

This looks like antivirus software activity. Before you reinstall the Host, could you please add the Host installation path to your AVG exceptions list. The path is C:\Program Files\Remote Utilities - Host\* . Asterisk means "any file within the folder". If you have a 64-bit system your path will be C:\Program Files(x86)\Remote Utilities - Host\*

Also, I recommend you use the latest beta. You can download it here https://www.remoteutilities.com/download/beta.php

Hello Peter,

Thank you for your post.

Looks like the Host service won't start for some reason or installation got corrupted somehow. Could you tell me what the operating system is on the Host PC and which product version you use (stable or beta)?

You might also want to try to complete wipe the Host installation and re-install from scratch. See this documentation page. Note that if you are using the current beta version the registry key with Host settings is located here HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Usoris\

Hope that helps.

Hello Dmitri,

Ok, fixed, I had to add users who is enabled to login.
And now question - despite of security mode - viewer always connects to currently active user account...
Is there any way to connect viewer to specific user account? Not to the active one?

If there multiple terminal sessions (i.e. there is a terminal server running on the remote PC) then you can switch to a specific session. However, even in that case you'll still connect to the console session first and have to use a terminal session switch icon on the Full Control mode toolbar.

Please, note that it's only the existing terminal sessions that you can connect to. Remote Utilities cannot create terminal sessions for you, i.e. it cannot act as a terminal server itself.

Hello Dmitri,

If you can connect from another Viewer then the Host is ok, and the issue may have been on the Viewer side, not the Host's.

In this case a corporate/perimeter firewall is often to blame. You might have certain outbound ports blocked on the corporate firewall level. You need to make sure they are open and that our relay server is accessible. This documentation can help:

Let me know if you figure out the cause for the issue. Thanks.

Hello Dmitri,

Thank you for your message.  

Host setup is OK - I have no any issues to connect to this host from another computer (located in a different place).

Could you please clarify if this is through Remote Utilities or you mean something else?

Looking forward to your reply.

Linux Server

Hi Douglas,

An RU Server for Linux is certainly on our wish list. Perhaps, even with limited functionality at first, like for example with relay capabilities only.

As for your offer, thank you very much. I'm not sure though it is possible because the source code is proprietary and not to be published or otherwise distributed. But thank you anyway!

Hello Mark,

Thank you for your message.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We are planning on updating the mobile client in a few months - it will be completely revamped, with new full-fledged address book, a new connection mode (at least Power Control) and a few more important features. We will make sure that the cursor issue is also fixed.

Don't hesitate to ask me if you have other questions.

Hello Hunkel,

Thank you for your message.

Unfortunately, in the current version (6.x) we do not provide any API that would allow that. But perhaps in version 7 we will.

Let me know if you have other questions.

WinNT security functionality failure - viewer can no longer long on

Hello Justin,

After Windows had updated did the Host settings stay the same or did they just reset?
