Remote Control Quick Start Guide

If you have not done it already – download IntelliAdmin Remote Control.

The software consists of two components: a server, and a client. The server is installed on the machine, or machines you would like to control. The client is then used to connect and control those remote machines.

In many cases it is not necessary to install the Server. If you have windows administrator access to the remote machine and it is on your LAN, the client will automatically push the Server to the remote machine for you.

Lets begin by installing the server on the machine you would like to control. Double click on the setup file. Click next, and select the server components:

Remote Control Server Setup File

Click next, and select the folder you want to install the program. Once you have finished the install the setup program will ask you what type of username you would like to use. The choices are:

Remote Control Server Setup Wizard

1. Windows Administrators – this selection allows any windows administrator of that machine to connect and control it.
2. Specific Windows Account or group – this allows you to pick any windows username or security group to have access to this machine.
3. Standard User – this selection allows you to pick any username and password used to control the machine. This option does not use any windows accounts for authentication.
4. VNC User – this allows third party remote control clients like RealVNC to connect and access this machine. It also will open the VNC port 5900 when this is selected.

Now that you have installed the Server, lets move over to the computer you would like to install the client. Run the installation file again, but this time only select the client components:

If the username and password are a local windows administrator, or an account setup by you. Once you type in a valid username and password you should be controlling the remote machine.
