Using RDP - Remote Desktop Protocol

Faronics Deploy will automatically enable RDP on the computers. Administrators do not need to enable RDP in the Remote Settings.

Initiating Remote control using RDP will prompt a logged-in user to grant remote access. If there is no user logged in, the remote will go through without user permission.

RDP will allow you to login with a specified user account. The end-user will see the lock screen displayed when the remote connection is active.

RDP over the web will also support file transfers so administrators can copy files from their computer to the remote computer.

Faronics Deploy always asks end users to Allow access to their computers.

Administrators can log in to computers if:

  • There is no active user

  • The active user's screen is locked (RDP)

Excluding these cases, Faronics Deploy does not let Admins view the screens of end-users without their permission.
