Use Remote.exe with the following syntax:
address_type parameter can have the following values:
- 0 for SMS Resource ID
- 1 for IPX
- 2 for TCP/IP
- 3 for NetBIOS
Note You can also access syntax information by typing remote.exe /? at a command prompt.
The following are two examples of the correct command-line syntax:
remote 3 dubn_netbios \\big_server\
When you use Remote.exe, the resource that you specify is always resolved to a resource ID in the SMS database. SMS object security is scanned to determine if the user has the permissions to remotely control the resource. The available remote control features depend on SMS resolving the computer address that you supply, instead of on how security controls are applied.
To establish a Remote Tools connection, you must have the Use Remote Tools permission and the Read permission for the collection that contains the client. If you are not a local administrator, your domain account must also be included in the Permitted Viewers list. To add your account to the Permitted Viewers list in SMS 2003 and SMS 2.0, follow these steps:
- In the SMS Administrator Console, expand the Site Database\Site Hierarchy\Your Site\Site Settings node.
- Click Client Agents, and then double-click Remote Tools Client Agent.
- Click the Security tab, and then click the Add button.
Note The Add button displays a yellow star.
- Type your domain account, and then click OK two times.
You can connect to a client by using its resource ID. To do this, use the following command syntax, where site_server is the NetBIOS name of your site server:
- In the SMS Administrator Console, open a collection.
- Right-click the client computer, and then click Properties.
After you configure the parameters, click OK to connect to the client. A connection to the client is established if all the following conditions are true:
- The Remote Control Agent (Wuser32.exe) is running on the client.
- The SMS Administrator Console and the client share a common network protocol.
- The SMS security permissions are configured correctly.
