Connecting over the Internet (unattended)

With Remote Utilities you can connect to a remote PC located behind a firewall and/or router using an Internet-ID connection. No additional router configuration is required on the remote side.

This tutorial explains how to connect to a remote PC with the Host installed for unattended access. For information on how to connect to a remote PC with Agent for spontaneous support, please refer to Connecting over the Internet using Agent.

  • Download and install Viewer on the local computer
  • Download and install Host on the remote computer
  • Make sure both computers have working Internet access.
