  • September 3, 2020

The remote control is a critical part of the remote access feature that enables IT administrators to provide quick support to devices operating remotely. In the era of remote working or a largely fragmented workforce, remote support is critical to ensure business continuity as well as to save on maintenance costs. With Scalefusion, IT admins can enable a consistent working environment to remote devices by provisioning remote access to business resources, file sharing over a secure network, team collaboration and remote support.

Step 5: Accept the Session on the Device

You can select the device you want to extend remote support to and start the cast session. Once the end-user accepts the cast session request, you can see the remote device screen on your PC. The user should accept the request within one minute, as the dashboard has a timeout. The cast session is launched in the edge browser and users can choose to share the entire device screen, the specific device screen or an application window.
