Regarding question #3. We are not sure if it's at all possible to run FF in a hidden mode. As for #4 - could you send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which specific keys are not shown (or provide a screenshot).
1. Cannot promise that this feature will be available in the very next update (6.6), but in one of the subsequent ones, that is for sure.
2. The Agent window will still show. What I mean is that Yes/No prompt messages won't show, that ask the user to confirm installing the Host and sending an email to admin (if this option was selected during prior configuration). Instead, a single information message will be shown after Host installation:
3. I'm not sure if this feature works exactly the same for any application, especially those that are not supposed to be running in a hidden mode. Let me clarify this issue for you with our developers.
4. Remote registry is not exactly the same as the regular Windows Registry editor, although looks similar. As with question above I need to clarify this specific issue. I'll get back to you soon on this.
5. It is ok so long as you have UAC enabled. It will prompt whenever you run any application/executable, not just Remote Utilities Agent.
The Agent generates the password once, which then stored (not the password, but its hash, of course) in a folder with Agent settings on your local disc. The password will change if you wipe the Agent's settings folder and re-run the Agent.
I'm not sure you can randomize the password at each Agent run automatically. So far you can do that manually by clicking the "Generate new password" link in the Agent window. The ability to automatically randomize the password at each run can make a good new feature suggestion though. We'll see what we can do.
1. We'll add export/import of the configuration settings soon. I'm afraid that currently the only way to go is to configure from scratch, sorry for that.
2. In the upcoming 6.6 release the notification system will be completely revamped. Instead of modal messages there'll be one message in the tray that appears after Host installation and notifies the user about the Host. Here is a forum thread on the subject.
3. Could you please create a ticket and send us a screenshot of your Remote Execute window filled out before you click the OK button?
If there is Remote Utilities monitor driver in your Device Manager and you still can't make the blank remote screen feature to work, I'm afraid this might be happening with that specific system and we can't do anything about it.
Did you try the feature on the same computer or different computers (remote Hosts)?
As for the mouse lag, I have this happening on an XP box that I maintain. The only solution that I have found, is to run Firefox with "Low" priority. To test this out, open task manager, find the Firefox process, right click on the process, select set priority, then select low. You can do this by starting Firefox with this shortcut, if the test has the desired result. This path is for an XP machine, you may have to edit it for Win 7. %windir%\system32\cmd.exe /c cd "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" && start/low firefox
Settings in RU are: 16-Bits color, high CPU usage, disable Aero, remove wallpaper, standard network usage mode (tried economy mode, also).
What is the connection type - direct or Internet ID? If the latter, you may try to either reduce the color depth and CPU or use a self-hosted server. Complete list of solutions is available here.
- Control-Connection to workstations over Internet-ID (self hosted on a german server and via id.remote-utilities.com) sometimes fail with "Connection closed gracefully" (or similar). The only way to connect is to manually click "Logon", then the remote control works afterwards. This happens sporadically, but too often to blame "Dr. Chance".
Could you please send us the logs of that specific Host for examination at email@example.com? The logs are located in the Host installation directory.
- Sending "CTRL+ALT+DEL" over ID-connection nearly always takes a lot of time, whatever host or ID-server it is.
How much time exactly?
- automatic clipboard control. It's quite stressful to always have to click in the menu to paste or copy something from or to the host.
Automatic copying/pasting should work for plain text content.
- some really basic host performance monitoring with alarms in the viewer. Like CPU/RAM usage over xx% for an specific amount of time, free HDD space, is process xy runnning and HDD S.M.A.R.T status.
This is among the suggestions in our wishlist. We are going to implement one at some point in the future.
