Windows

Step 1

Click on the "Log In" button at the top right side of the ISL Online webpage.


Step 2


Enter your ISL Online username and password.


Step 3

Click "Remote Access" tab.


Step 4


Click "Add this Computer" to add the computer you are currently using to the list.  


Step 5

Click "Run" to install.

Important: To install ISL AlwaysOn, administrative privileges are required!

Important: In an environment where a Web Proxy is used, ISL Light and ISL AlwaysOn use Internet Explorer connection settings. Since ISL AlwaysOn as well as ISL Light with restart and resume enabled run under system account, they use Internet Explorer settings for the system account. It might happen that Internet Explorer settings have not been set for the system account.


Step 6

Click "Next" button.


Step 7

Click "Finish" button.


Step 8


Set up Access Password and click "Grant Access" button.

Note: As an important part of security, you need to set a strong access password. You will need to provide the access password each time you try to access the remote computer. The access password can be changed in the Computer Access Configurations, but everybody having access to this computer has to be informed about the change. The password is stored locally in the computer registry.

Note: If you have already installed ISL AlwaysOn to the current PC and are just adding a new user to the current PC click on the Grant Access button.


Step 9

Computer has been added to your computer list and is available to connect. Please continue to the Access a computer chapter to learn how to access that computer from anywhere.

The same screen can later be reached simply by double-clicking the ISL AlwaysOn icon in the taskbar - the icon appears after the installation of ISL AlwaysOn.
