Authorizing Non-Admins for Remote Control

You may want to give a user on your network the ability to initiate remote control sessions while they are not admins on the remote computer.

Information

NOTE:

The Goverlan agent must already be installed on the target workstation.

Goverlan agents require admin rights to install.

Goverlan authorization

To authorize non-admin users to use remote control, you have two options.

Option 1 – Create an AD Security Group called “Goverlan Remote Control Admins”

Create this security group anywhere in your AD structure. The group must be a “DOMAIN LOCAL SECURITY GROUP.”

Add user accounts to it for any user you wish to have the ability to initiate remote control sessions.

NOTE:

This will allow anyone who is in the group to initiate remote control sessions to any machine on your network.

Option 2 – Create a local security group called “Goverlan Remote Control Admins” on any workstation.

Create this security group directly on the local machine. Add users to this group from the domain who should have the ability to control that specific workstation.
