Does Remote Utilities or RU Server "call home"?
Remote Utilities may contact our web servers to do the tasks listed in the table below. For each of these tasks you can replace the default option with an alternative option that doesn't involve using our web servers.
|Task/Feature||Default option||Alternative option|
|Internet-ID connection||Connect via our public server||Use self-hosted server|
|Checking for updates||Monthly||Can be set to "Never"|
|Downloading and installing updates||Can only be initialized by the user. The program never updates on its own. Once the user initiates an update the program connects to our servers to download an update file and perform the update.|
