Default port
Enter an available port to use with Network Clipboard & Viewer communications. All computers on your network should use the same port to allow connections between computers.

Use IP Address
Check this box to enable use of specified IP Address (if any) on computer's list.
If you specify a host name "REMOTE" and a IP Address "", the IP Address will be used when you require to connect to that host "REMOTE".
If this option is unchecked, the host name "REMOTE" will be used to connect. Your local computer should be able to solve "REMOTE" host name to proper IP address.

Force Hostname
This option defines Network Clipboard and Viewer server's behavior when a remote computer connects to your Network Clipboard and Viewer.
If this option is checked, Network Clipboard and Viewer will force resolution of remote host's IP address to Hostname (slower).
If this option is unchecked, Network Clipboard and Viewer first find the remote host's IP address in already defined Computers List, if found uses the already defined Hostname, if not found will perform a resolution (converts IP address to Hostname/Remote Computer name).
For Example: if remote computer with IP address connects to your computer, the remote computer's name is searched in Computers List (Network Settings) if Force Hostname is unchecked. If IP is not found or Force Hostname is checked, then the remote computer's name is searched on network (slower) using remote's IP address.

Use only computer name
Check this box to use only remote computer's names only (to validate), or using fully qualified host name (including DNS suffix).

For Example:

Computer Name:    SERVER1
Fully qualified:
