Remote Access without Control?

Remote Access without Control?

Remote Access without Control?

Hi guys,

New to the forums, good to be here.

Does anyone know of a remote access solution that would not interrupt the hosts control, but would allow the guest full access to files and control? Not sure how this would be done without creating a full instance but again this is a bit foreign to me.

Any help is appreciated.



RE: Remote Access without Control?

I use Dameware's MiniRemote to access other computers on the network. I can access drives/files 'invisibly' to the user of the computer or have the option of controlling the computer.
It is not free, but is relatively inexpensive and works quite well.

RE: Remote Access without Control?

i should clarify, if i am controlling the computer it does interrupt the current user.

We use the RHUB security appliance-- it allows remote access and doesn't require a monthly subscription.
