User Manual

Step 1 (Remote Computer)

Open “Setting” from the tray icon on the remote computer. 


Step 2 (Remote Computer)

Open “Desktop Sharing” settings.


Step 3 (Remote Computer)

There are a few options.

Show notification of incoming connection

Display a pop up on the remote computer for before a Remote Desktop session is established, as opposed to ISL AlwaysON’s default state, which just launches the connection when initiated. 

Notification timeout

A determined number of seconds to show the notification on the remote computer.

Allow local user to reject connection

Allow the local user to reject the connection during the notification timeout. A prompt will be shown to the local user allowing them to reject the connection to their machine by the supporter. 

Specify the default action in case the user does not select anything in the prompt shown to them and notification timeout runs out.

Skip the notification and allow connection when no local user is logged in

When this setting is selected the ISL AlwaysOn application will check if a local user is logged in. In that case the notification dialogue will be show. If user is not logged in it will skip the showing of notification and allow the supporter to connect. 

Please Note:  

Allow computer access also with local user consent and no access password” is used via command line argument to connect to specific computer, while ignoring the access password and require local consent instead. 

Command line example:

ISLLight.exe --username "<isl_online_username>" --password "<password>" --connect-search "<computer_description>/<computer_name>" --consent-message “<message to be displayed>”

Click “Save” to confirm changes.


Step 4 (Local Computer)

Open ISL Light and connect to the remote computer where we have configured the notification. 


Step 5 (Remote Computer)

Meanwhile, on the client’s side, a notification is shown based on the preferences we have set before. 

Client can either click “Allow” or “Reject”.
