  8. Why can I no longer use the static password?2020-11-03T17:05:18+00:00

There was probably a corruption of the settings.dat file, located inside the path C:ProgramDataSupremoRemoteDesktop.
We suggest to uninstall the service (if installed), close Supremo, delete the settings.dat file and then re-launch Supremo.
Of course, Supremo must be re-configured. The ID of the machine may also change, in some rare cases.

  2. Why do I get “Remote control not allowed”?2020-11-03T17:05:25+00:00

The Remote control not allowed message indicates that the access to the remote machine has been restricted to one or more Supremo IDs and you’re not authorized to control it. To get connected, you need to update the list of allowed IDs in Tools – Security of the remote PC.

  4. What ports does Supremo use?2020-11-03T17:05:25+00:00

From version 4.2.0, the primary port used by Supremo for outgoing connections is TCP port 5938.
Your firewall should therefore allow the use of this port, to ensure the best performance of our software.
If it cannot connect via port 5938, Supremo will try to use TCP port 443.
Android and iOS Apps use TCP port 443.

For prior versions, Supremo generates outbound traffic on the TCP 80 and 443 ports and does not require Firewall configuration. However, there may be cases in need of interventions. When the Firewall is configured so that it also locks the outbound traffic or controls the SSL traffic, it is necessary to insert the * domain into the exceptions.
