    • Allow for Remote Control/Remote Desktop ports to be changed

      It would be nice if we could configure a non-default port for remote control and remote desktop. This will allow organizations to set a specific port.

        • remote tools - increase security

          remote tools allows the end-user to disconnect the session. the problem with this is if the user that logs on what the IT Admin, the user can disconnect him/her and use their account instead of their own.

          this scenario is common on a help desk, so it would be good to know who logged on (remote or local) and when the connection is lost, automatically lock/log off the session.

            Teamviewer provides this feature, and it's incredibly helpful when working on machines.

              • Remote tools connect on ping.

                Remote tools connect on ping. Same as Dameware Mini remote Control if you restart a computer it will keep trying to connect until the machine has restarted. This is really handy so your are not guessing when to reconnect.

                  • Please intergrate CAC authentication with remote tools.

                    CAC card authentication via remote control doesn't work. For organizations that utilize CAC cards this would eliminate the need for utilizing username and password which is a pass the hash vulnerability.

                    • Remote Control Authorisation Message

                      Add a feature to send a message to a user which appears in the request to remote control. e.g. connecting to fix your office issue.

                      lets the end user know why someone is connecting.

                      • Remote Control via SCCM Server/DP like a proxy

                        We cannot use Remote Control as Administrators cannot route to all endpoints from their PCs. We would like to proxy the Remote Control through a central server or be able to leverage RD Gateway.

                        • Remote Control send Wake-On-Lan Magic Packet upon initiation

                          Some issues can only be resolved after the user is no longer in the building. Often times users turn computers off and walk away. It doesn't appear that there is an easy way to just send a WOL packet from the SCCM Console to boot the machine back up.

                            Add the ability to blank the remote display. Sometimes it's useful when you want to do something that you don't want others to be able to see,

                            • Remote Control Option to Allow Connection if User Approval Times out

                              Provide an option to be used in conjunction with the "Prompt user for Remote Control permission" setting. The option would "Allow Connection if User Approval times out".
                              We want to have people get approval from users before dropping in on them, but sometimes the user has stepped away from their computer but needs something fixed while they're away. Allowing this option would provide a good middle ground.

                                  When devices have multiple IP address recorded in DNS this could be either obsolete records or where devices have more than one network connection (wired / wireless) it would be really useful if all available IP addresses were tried as part of the connection process.

                                  • Audit logging of Remote Control Sessions

                                    Remote control is nice but we are unable to use in my company due to Auditing issues where the sessions cannot be logged.

                                    Could there be a option added to SCCM to allow for logging of the Session each time remote control of a computer occurs?
