Remote Connections

As mentioned before, the NetResident console is a system component that connects to the NetResident service, processes data, and presents it to the user via a graphical user interface. The connection between the service and console is made over TCP/IP, which means that you can connect to the NetResident service running on any computer, as long as you can connect to it over TCP/IP and know the password.

When you start NetResident, it initiates a connection to the NetResident service you connected to last time. By default, this is the local PC, but you can remotely connect to any computer on which NetResident is installed. In order to connect to another NetResident service, do the following:

· Click Connections => Service => State => Disconnect to disconnect from the NetResident service you are currently connected to.
· Click Connections => Service => State => Connect.

The following dialog window will be displayed:


You should enter the IP address or host name of the computer running the NetResident service, as well as the master password that you selected when you installed the NetResident service. Click OK to connect.
