Initial Checklist


This topic includes the initial checklist when planning to setup your server and useful links to help you get started with most common tasks.

User management

  • Will you manually create users on ICP or do you plan to integrate with an external authenticator?
  • You need to decide who will need to have access to the system, either to all four products or just a subset of products.
  • Will you group users into domains on ICP, allowing easier administration compared to a flat list of users, all in a single domain?
  • Will you need to limit the number of active sessions per user/per domain?
  • Will there be different customizations per user/per domain?

Remote support (ISL Light)

Use cases

How will you mainly use ISL Light? You can use one or more of the following methods:

  • access point (a customer visits your ICP web page and enters the provided session code - you can check this manual topic for more info about customizing that page: User web pages customization)
  • directly (a customer downloads ISL Light Client and enters the session code afterwards - you can check Starting products for direct ISL Light links)
  • integrate a connection box to your website (a customer enters a session code into the form on your website and runs the offered excutable - you can check this link for an example)
  • starting it from ISL Pronto (a supporter uses the remote desktop button in the ISL Pronto client toolbar to start ISL Light Desk, automatically generate a session code and push a connection link to the customer)


  • add a company logo to ISL Light
  • add command line arguments to ISL Light by default so that you start viewing and controlling customer's desktop as soon as you connect
  • customize the ISL Light executable name
  • customize the ISL Light program icon
  • customize the ISL Light window title
  • record ISL Light sessions automatically (e.g. on a network share which is mapped to a drive on your supporters' machines)
  • different permissions for different supporters, e.g. view only, no file transfer

Please check  the ISL Light manual for further details.
