Connect to Remote Computer - Web

 

Step 1

Login with your ISL Conference Proxy account by pressing the "Login" button in the top right corner.

Note: Access the login page at http://localhost/ address (replace localhost with the appropriate server address for your situation). 


Step 2

Enter your username and password provided to you by your ISL Conference Proxy administrator and click "Login".


Step 3

Click "Remote Access" tab once you are logged in.


Step 4

Filter your computers by which user has access to them and who they are owned by, to find a desired computer faster.


Step 5

Click the "Connect" button, next to the computer you wish to connect to.


Step 6

Click "Run" to start the ISL Light executable.


Step 7

Enter the Access Password for the computer and click "Connect". If the password is correct the session will automatically start.


Apart from the above procedure, where you chose the Run option in step 5, you can also choose Save and save the executable for later use - e.g. place it on your desktop and rename it to a more friendly name, e.g. John's home computer.exe.

When you wish to access that remote computer, simply double-click the executable on your desktop, enter the appropriate username and password when prompted, then the computer access password and you will be connected - no need to visit the product pages of your ISL Conference Proxy each time.

It is possible to use command line arguments for ISL AlwaysOn Connect, allowing you to skip the password entry form. Available parameters are:

  • connect-uid (you can use this to pass the desired unique id of the target machine, if needed)
  • username (you can use it to provide your ISL Online username, e.g. \\local_domain\tim)
  • password (you can use it to provide your ISL Online password)
  • computer-password (you can use it to provide the computer access password)
  • computer-password-MD5 (you can use it to provide the raw computer access password as written in the registry - check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ISL Online\ISL AlwaysOn\password)
  • stream-options (you can use it to enable the desired checkboxes [separate them with a semicolon] in the list, e.g. small_foot;leave_background;)

If you specify a username, password and a computer password (either in plaintext or as MD5), you will get a single-click solution that connects to a certain ISL AlwaysOn machine without having to enter any credentials or login to your user beforehand.

Important: Please keep in mind that if you create a shortcut and set those parameters for it, anyone with access to your machine can do a right-click on that shortcut and read the parameters. 

Example

ISLAlwaysOnConenct.exe --username \\mycompany\user1 --password userpwd --computer-password accesspwd

Important: In the previous version, all the parameters were specified as "key=value". Please note that the old format will work, but the new format is preferred.
