Ultimate Remote Control for Adminstrators
25 Nov 2008. One of the items on a wish list for a systems administrator is the ability to have a full color image of a remote workstation in real time. To provide an effective helping hand to an employee who is having a technical problem with their PC at a moment’s notice is probably one of the most challenging demands of being a system administrator. Therefore, any IT tool that makes the job for remote support easier and effective will reflect on the employee’s total productivity. Anyplace Control software has many technological enhancements that fits that the criteria (http://www.anyplace-control.com). Developed by Anyplace Control Software Inc., the program allows a network administrator to monitor and control remote PCs saving time and money in the process of fixing a variety of end-user computer issues.
The program consists of an Admin and Host modules that need to be installed on a local and remote PC’s respectively. The software requires that both computers have access to the Internet or be connected in a local network. Anyplace Control provides the ability for connection between the Admin PC and the Host PC in two ways; using the remote PC’s IP address/DNS name or over the Internet or using the Online Account name and a nickname. One of the benefits of the Online Connection mode is that it allows you to bypass routers and firewalls automatically granting remote access via a secure HTTPS protocol. This particular connection mode there does not require configuration of firewall settings while maintaining an industry-standard security level of remote access.
Running as a service by default, both modules are available for engagement in a matter of a few clicks. A wide range of functionality includes many options such as file transfer, installation of different software packages, restart and shut down of remote computers and others virtually in real time.
