Can the client portion be installed remotely? Thanks.

Hi Dave,

You mean the Host module, right? In networking terms the Host is the "server" while the "client" is the Viewer (client-server model). Just clarifying terms.

Yes, you can push-install the Host to remote PCs provided that you are in a Windows domain network. Use the "Remote Install" tool available in the Viewer.

Thanks. But what if it is not under the same domain but on the same subnet or local LAN, would this still be possible?

You're never a loser until you quit trying.

Yes. In this case you must know the administrator password on the remote machine, and the password must not be empty.

Also, if it's an XP remote machine, you should disable 'Simple file sharing' feature. If it's a Win 7 remote machine, the UAC (User Access Control) for network connections must be disabled.
