Rowmote Helper must be running on the computer to be controlled. If it’s running, double-clicking it should show a dialogue with the current version number, offering to quit the program. If you quit Rowmote Helper manually, it won’t launch again until you tell it to do so; otherwise, Rowmote Helper will automatically launch when you log into your computer. Unless you are able to use a Bluetooth connection via Internet tethering, your iPhone or iPod Touch’s WiFi must be enabled in its Settings, and it must be connected to the same network as your computer.
