7.18 Remote Management Rights

The Remote Management Rights dialog box lets you control the operations that the selected administrator can perform on remote devices.

7.18.1 Contexts

Specify the Device folders or User folders (contexts) that you want the administrator’s Remote Management rights to apply to. To select a folder, click Add to display the Contexts dialog box, browse for and select the folder (or multiple folders), then click OK. The rights also apply to the folder’s subfolders.

7.18.2 Privileges

The Privileges section lets you grant the administrator rights to perform remote operations for devices and users located within the contexts (folders) you selected in the Contexts section.

The following rights are available:




Remote Control

  • Control a remote device

Setting the Remote Control right to Allow forces the Remote View and Transfer Files rights to Allow. This means that an administrator who can remotely control a device can also remotely view the device and transfer files to and from the device.

Remote View

  • View a remote device’s desktop


Transfer Files

  • Transfer files to/from a remote device

  • Create folders on a remote device

  • Create folders on a remote device

  • Delete files and folders on a remote device


Remote Execute

  • Run executable files with system privileges on a remote device.

Granting Remote Execute rights allows an administrator to execute processes in the system space.

Remote Diagnostics

  • Run the following diagnostic tools on a remote device:

    • System Information (msinfo32.exe)

    • Computer Management (compmgmt.msc)

    • Services (services.msc)

    • Registry Editor (regedit.exe)

  • Run other administrator-configured diagnostic tools on a remote device

To configure other diagnostic tools to run on a remote device, an administrator must have the Zone Rights – Modify Rights setting.
