Connection Options

Connections must be stopped in order to edit the following settings.

  • Idle Timeout - how long to wait after there are no active tunnels before terminating the connection.  This can help reduce data charges if your Devices are on a cellular internet connection.  Set to "0" to never terminate.
  • Routing - what type of connection to make
    • Proxy Only - only attempt a proxy connection.
    • Peer to peer only - only attempt a peer to peer connection.
    • Peer to peer with proxy failover - try a peer to peer connection first, then try a proxy connection if that fails.
  • Local Network Sharing - see LAN Sharing
  • Proxy Connection - select this if you wish to share the Connection with another person.  This overrides the "Routing" setting.  If you select this, you next need to select the "Security" mode:
    • IP Latching - the proxy connection will latch to the first IP address that connects after the proxy is created, blocking all others.
    • None - the proxy connection will allow incoming connections from any IP address.
  • Connection Logging - enable if needed in order to debug connections.

If connection logging is enabled, a button will appear called "Show Logs".

Click on "Show Logs" to open Explorer windows showing the log file locations.  These can be copied to a support ticket if requested.
