Improve remote support with a built-in internet proxy

Improve remote support with a built-in internet proxy

Deployed in centralized mode, Dameware Remote Support lets you remotely connect to computers outside the corporate firewall with just an internet proxy server. This proxy enables you to connect to end users working outside the network via a safe over-the-internet remote session. In addition, users can send a remote connection link, which when opened and accepted, will start the remote session without having to set up a VPN.

Do you find yourself asking…
  • What is remote computer access?
  • How does remote computer access work?
  • What are the benefits of remote computer access?
  • Remote access vs. remote desktop
  • What does a remote access tool do?
  • How does remote access work in Dameware Remote Support?
  • What is remote computer access?

    Remote computer access is when a user accesses their device or computer from a remote location using a network connection. For instance, once a user is connected to an office computer through remote access, they’re given the same control over the computer as if they were operating it in person.

  • How does remote computer access work?

    Remote computer access works by enabling a connection between two or more computers. This access is useful for admins who need to troubleshoot end-user devices. Or it can be useful for employees who aren’t at their office and want to access their workstation, whether from home or another off-site location. 

    Out-of-network remote computer access requires specific technology to form a secure connection. This can be a VPN connection, but a more flexible option is an internet proxy. An internet proxy serves as an intermediary device for enabling network connection between two (or more) devices. The computers don’t talk to each other directly—instead, the proxy receives traffic from one computer and sends it to the other device. 

    Using an internet proxy enhances the security of the remote connection. In addition, it makes it possible to reach devices that would otherwise be behind a firewall and inaccessible for connections outside the corporate network. With a proxy, admins or employees can access their computers from off-site locations.

  • What are the benefits of remote computer access?

    With remote access to a computer, IT teams can improve their troubleshooting abilities in addition to their ability to identify and solve problems affecting productivity wherever they or the problem are located. Remote control access can also support the integration of corporate networks and remote devices, so system administrators don’t need to go directly to a server’s location just to troubleshoot—they can just log in to devices from their desk.

  • Remote access vs. remote desktop

    Although remote access and remote desktop are sometimes used interchangeably, it’s possible to define differences between the two.

    When talking about remote desktop, it’s usually a reference to in-network, on-premises remote support where screen sharing or remote connections are used for day-to-day business purposes. An on-premises remote desktop tool is often a good fit for employees who use screen sharing. In addition, an IT admin will use it to provide remote IT support to the end users on the network.

    Remote access refers to forming connections between different networks from different locations. This is typically a cloud-based remote service, because remote access needs to be more flexible than an in-network service. A remote access solution can connect a user to their office computer, so they can access their display and files from anywhere in the world. Or an admin can provide remote support from a secondary location, including for users who aren’t on the corporate network. 

  • What does a remote access tool do?

    A remote access tool creates connections between computers, so users can access or control a computer from afar.

    Remote access programs offer helpful services and can enable IT teams to deliver better remote support. For example, with a remote access tool, IT teams can transfer files securely from an office computer to a remote computer with ease. 

    Additionally, remote access tools can support help desk services by enabling secure and efficient remote access, which can allow teams to improve mean-time-to-resolution and deliver a better overall user experience.

  • How does remote access work in Dameware Remote Support?

    SolarWinds Dameware Remote Support is designed to be an affordable, reliable, and secure on-premises software that can simplify and optimize remote IT tasks.

    Dameware Remote Support can help IT teams provide better remote access support, as it’s designed to be lightning-fast and operate from a single pane of glass. This means IT admins can quickly connect to any computer on their network typically in just a matter of seconds and with a few clicks.

    Admins can even access computers that are powered-off, sleeping, hibernating, or crashed, thanks to the built-in Intel vPro with AMT, Wake-on-LAN, and KVM support. With the ease of access, troubleshooting a critical incident takes no time at all.
