If you are trying to connect to your localhost then it will not work.
Connecting a Windows viewer app from the same primary machine is not supported.
You can only connect a Windows Viewer from another secondary machine to your primary machine.
If you want a local host connection, you can only do that using spacedesk HTML5 Viewer which operates thru web browsers.
Just open a web browser on your primary machine (e.g. Google Chrome) the go to http://viewer.spacedesk.net/, then try to connect to its own IP address.
Please keep in mind that spacedesk allows only 1 HTML5 viewer connection at a time.
i have 2 machines
it connect fine from machine a to b
but when i try connect from machine b to a it gives me that error
you are claiming that i am connectin tol localhost but no i am connecting to another machine
and i keep getting that error invaild entry local host
Why still use the old Windows viewer? Have you tried the new one from the Microsoft store?
Why connect manuallly via IP-Address? Does automatic discovery not work?
If connecting manually by IP-Address – are you sure you are not accidentally using a local host address? These start 127.x.x.x
