Connecting to remote systems

You can connect to remote systems with VirusScan Enterprise installed to perform operations such a modifying or scheduling scanning or update tasks, or enabling and disabling the on-access scanner on a remote system.
Note: If you do not have administrator rights to connect to the remote system, you receive an Insufficient user rights access denied message.

When you start the VirusScan Remote Console, the name of the system you are connected to appears in the console title bar. If you have not connected to a system elsewhere on the network, the title bar does not show the name of your local system. When you open any task’s properties dialog box from a remote console, the system name is displayed in the properties dialog box title bar.

You can open multiple remote consoles. When you close the Connect to Remote Computer dialog box, the connection to the remote system closes as well.
