Deploy Remote Utilities client across your network and access unattended workstations and servers.
Remote Utilities integrates with Active Directory in multiple ways:
With Remote Utilities you can connect from computer A to computer B without any web server in-between. For example, if both computers reside on the same LAN, simply specify the LAN IP address of the target computer:
You may have a very strict security policy in your company network with Internet access either restricted or entirely blocked. Remote Utilities is an ideal solution for a LAN-only scenario due to the following reasons:
Remote Utilities has a built-in utility called MSI Configurator. Use it to customize your Host installer file with the settings that you need the remote Host to have once it is installed. The MSI Configurator has a wizard-like interface — you start from selecting the type of output package you need and proceed through further steps to define your settings.
The most appropriate option for deployment in a LAN and Active Directory is Standard MSI. This option allows you to build an .msi installer with all the custom settings that you need. You can further deploy this MSI package in your network either through GPO or other means.
You can push-install the program across your Active Directory computers using AD group policies. Alternatively, you can use the built-in Remote Install tool for remote installation and remote upgrade.
You can create multiple users and groups with different permissions on the remote Host. For example, with Remote Utilities Security enabled, you can create usernames (accounts), passwords and specify permissions for each account.
If you choose Windows Security you can piggyback on existing Windows (or domain) users and groups — just select the user or group and set permissions for them:
