Why obtain free licence?

Hello Angus,

Thank you for your input.

It would be a Good Thing if you offered different levels of "Small Operator" licenses for small quantities over 10 PCs. You could offer licenses at $199 for up to 20 machines, $299 for up to 40 or 50 machines, and $499 for the current no-limit license. This might get more consultants and small companies to pay for RU.

This is what the "per remote PC" license is for.

One of my clients with 19 PCs is up for a LogMeIn Central renewal in 6 months. It will cost them $433 as of right now. A 1-operator license for RU is $499, plus the cost of removing LMI and installing RU Host on each machine, so I can't recommend it to them even though RU is a one-time cost (except for upgrades to new versions). 19 RU hosts would cost even more ($27.95 per remote PC = $531.05) and they would still have the costs of removal and installation.

The problem is that this "reasonable" level may differ from customer to customer. There is always someone for whom the price is too high, and also someone who thinks that the price is pretty low.  :)

However, we will certainly consider lowering the "per remote PC" pricing and shift the "threshold" towards increasing the number of "per remote PC" licenses equivalent to 1 operator license.  

Thank you for your suggestions.

Informing remote user about my presence

Hello,

Yes, of course. You can do that in multiple ways:

- Enable the Ask user permission feature in the Host security settings

- On the General tab in the Host options, you can enable the Notification panel and also select other options - change tray icon view, show balloon hint and play a sound.

Just select an option/options that work for you.

Hello Jamie,

On the remote side (Host) please enable the "Use legacy capture mode" in Settings for Host -> Options. Let me know if that fixes the issue.

Thank you.

Hello Michael,

I've added this feature suggestion to our roadmap. We'll implement it either in the form of a hotkey, or menu on the toolbar, or both. We'll see.

Thank you.

Updating software

Hi Michael,

In order to do that you need to build the one-click installer with the following options:

On step 2



On step 3





On step 4



This build will update the Host to the latest version, but the ID, password and other Host settings will remain the same. Also, no notifications to the user will be shown other than standard Windows message about whether the user wants to run such-and-such executable.

Auto-Update Service

I moved the topic to feature requests.

The auto-update is a complicated topic that needs to be dealt with care. We will certainly be improving the update process in the future and using RU Server as a central "coordinating hub" is a good idea. Thanks!

Remote with Dual Monitors & Dual Callbacks

Ok, let us know if the problem manifests itself again and we'll think how to go about it further. We couldn't reproduce it ourselves, unfortunately.

Ok. So, getting to the beginning of this thread, do the two callback connections work as they should now?

Hello Larry,

I finally ended up restarting the computer to fix everything.

So which of the issues is currently there? Or did the [Host] restart fix them all?
