We just upgraded in DEV to resolve the folder archive issue and we are now having a problem where the client no longer remotely connects to the server. It works locally and through the web interface but not the client.

Did you try the latest build? Is the Test button working on Connection? You might need a Credential if you use Integrated auth.

Can you telnet both locally on the machine and remote machine to port 16444?

Successful in both instances. Appears not to be any kind of firewall issue. This was working previous to the 8.3.7 upgrade.

It does not make sense if you can telnet from both client machine and server machine. What error do you get then?

Hi

Minor bug in the "failed job" view. It always shows all failed jobs, even if you want
it to only show 1 Day back.

I think we need to do a screen share to see this in action. We have noticed that some has hardened security on their servers so .NET 4.7.1 might need to be installed. Please try that. After trying that please send email to support@visualcron.com so we can schedule a screen share.

I can confirm we are experiencing the same issue with 8.3.7.

It would seem that it is now longer possible to view the Job histor or Task History in version 8.3.7. The Date and Get buttons are greyed out.

Issue with wrong host reference in the events window.
It is reporting the last connected host instead of the host that the job is located at.

Hi

When upgrading from 8.3.6 to 8.4.0 out SSH connection failed. It's a simple echo command for renewing a Kerberos ticket on a Linux server. We used to have the servername in the adress field, eg NJ-XXX. This failed with the message 'invalid address'. When we changed with the ip adress in the address field, it worked again. Do you know of any changes that would lead to this?
