Sometimes you need to physically perform a task on a remote workstation or server. To do so, ZENworks lets you remotely manage a device through the ZENworks Control Center. When remotely managing a device, there are three modes of operation: Remote Control, Remote View, and Remote Login.
Remote Control: Lets you take control of the device's desktop and perform tasks as if you were physically located at the device.
Remote View: Lets you observe the device's desktop and activity.
Remote Login: Lets you log in to the device, opening a new graphical session without disturbing the user on the device. The user cannot view your Remote Login session.
