Host is a persistent module that you can install on a remote computer for 24/7 access. You must have administrative privileges on the computer in order to install the Host.
You can review and change the Host settings through the Windows Start menu or by right-clicking its icon in the system tray.
- Host can accept direct connections and Internet-ID connections. Direct connection is enabled by default. Internet-ID connection must be enabled in Host settings.
- Host works for both unattended and attended access. Enable Ask user permission if you want to ask permission before connecting to someone's remote computer.
- Host always runs as a SYSTEM service and starts with Windows by default. You can change this behavior in the startup mode settings.
- Since Host runs as a system service, you can remotely control UAC prompt messages and perform administrative tasks on the remote computer.
