Remote administration thru administration console

Postby GLM » Tue Nov 19, 2002 10:19 am

Hi all,

Can remote servers be administered by means of the local Administration Console? (can't find a way to connect the AC
to a remote server).

Thank you in advance.

Not in the current versions. This is still under development (mostly done though), and will be available in the Enterprise edition.

VNC is the key

your best bet at the moment is to implement something like VNC which allows you to fully control machines over any IP based network including the internet. You can even control machines from a java enabled web browser!

Vnc is at:

Most of all its free!

I use it to manage all servers and clients because it is just so easy to use, and it gets round the problems that most things have with remote admin.

Using a windows 2000 server with the Remote Management (Terminal services) works awesome. Just a suggestion if you already have one with a license :)
