Remote Issue

Chris Mullins


I am having an issue with Remote Support 2.2 when using the auto connect on start-up option.


My friend has the following Remote.ini:


last_connected =,


autoconnect = True

host =

key = ********

self_hosted = False

connection_type = 0

port = 6837


[seen_motds] = b05b33b53003c7c5beab7fa39c247b23a5387676


When my friend starts up NVDA the connection is made however, it connects in ‘Control another machine’ mode when ‘Allow this machine to be controlled’ is specified on the Options screen.  Is there an issue that I’m unaware of regarding this?  Does the connection_type = 0 parameter not indicate that ‘Controlled’ mode is what is required?
