Configuring remoteit Services on the local Device
While the remoteit Desktop application can be seen primarily as a tool to connect to Services on other Devices, it is also used to configure Services on the local Device. For example, if you want to allow an incoming Remote Desktop (RDP) connection to your laptop, you would configure it here. It is not required to configure Services on the local Device if all you want to do is to connect to other Devices.
When the local Device is not configured, it will show "Set up this device". Click here to assign the local Device a name and add Services.
- Open at Login opens the Desktop App when you log in. Note that Hosted Services and active Connections will keep running whether the Desktop App is open or not.
- HTTPS certificate - enable this if you are using HTTPS connection types to cut down on certificate warnings.
- Auto-update automatically updates the application in the event a new version is available.
- About shows you the current version of the App. If there is an update available, you will see:
- Reset Interactive Guides - certain screens have pop-up help panels (Interactive Guides) to explain what they do. When you close one of these by clicking on the "X" in the upper right corner, that guide will no longer be shown. In order to re-enable the display of all such Interactive Guides, click on this button.
- Disable local network discovery - when local network discovery is enabled, the remoteit service (which runs even when the Desktop application is not open) allows connection to the Web Admin Panel using a web browser. http connections can connect on port 29999 and https connections can connect on port 29998. Disabling local network discovery will disable access to these connections on the LAN, meaning you'll only be able to access the Settings using the Desktop application itself. Most users should leave this disabled.
- Re-install system agent- reinstalls the utilities used by the Desktop App. Support might suggest that you this in the event there is any problem with your connection.
- Uninstall - unregisters any Network Services, then removes all of the locally installed command line software. In general, you should not do this unless requested by remote.it support.
- Show support files - opens the folders where log and configuration files are kept. This makes it easier to supply information to support if needed.
