How To Remotely Control a Computer with TSplus Remote Support

Both agent and end-user need to download and run the Remote Support connection client. The connection is initiated by the agent entering in his session the credentials provided by the end-user. Similarly, to end a session, the end-user can simply close the chat box at their end.

How To Remotely Control a Computer From the agent’s point of view

From the agent’s point of view here is how to provide support.

  • Run the TSplus Remote Support executable.

  • In the console, generate a connection client to send to the end-user. That is, if they have not already set up Remote Support on their device. The connection client is very easily customised should you want to modify it to bear your company branding.

  • Once the end-user has their Remote Support window in front of them, they will be able to share the ID and password with you so you can validate the connection and begin the session.

  • Done. You can start work.

How To Remotely Control a Computer From the end-user’s point of view

From the end-user’s point of view, these are the steps.

  • Either directly download the connection client from our online Quick-start guide or run the same executable from the invitation your agent has sent you.

  • Remote Support will generate a fresh password each time you run it (as in open the Remote Support window). Your support Agent needs your ID and the password provided by the connection client to begin the session.

  • Done. You Are Sharing Your Screen.

NB: You can terminate the session once work is done, or at any time. Ultimately, for security purposes, credentials and termination put the end-user “in charge” rather than the Agent.

Remote Control Session Underway

Once the Remote Support Session is underway, simply remember that the Agent will do their work by remotely controlling your mouse and other peripherals. Be attentive to let them work without interference, especially if the session aim is troubleshooting. So, now could well be the time to sit back and watch, if your presence is required during the intervention. The chat box is very useful to communicate for instance to ask any questions or to provide additional information.

Then again, two or more colleagues could share screens and use remote control technology either to put work in common or even for training.

For instance, teams can in turn share or control various documents and applications as well as watch all the steps a colleague would take in a particular process.
