  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. File transfer and chat via Remote Control console

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

  5. Show the remote cursor during remote control

    Please allow us to see the remote mouse cursor in the remote control viewer!

    We had to create a software that displays a little dot which follows the mouse of the remote user and our tech have to launch it manually when connected remotely, this way we can see where the remote cursor is located but it's of course very impractical.

  7. package remote control viewer in a msi natively

    Provide the remote control viewer tool in MSI format "out of the box".
    This will permit to distribute this tool to people who don't require the full console ( i.e devs, Help desk, ....).
    Moreover, packaging it as a standalone tool will prevent from deploying binaries manually forgetting registry keys that are mandatory to log remote control events.

  9. 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.

  10. Remote control default connection via FQDN not NETBIOS. This would allow remote control across multiple trusted domain easily using the cons

    When trying to use Remote Control from start->remote control in the console, it is not possible to connect to machine that is not part the same domain as the server as netbios is used. If the FQDN is called than it would be possible to connect to devices in trusted domains.

  11. Stop clearing the clipboard after pasting into CM Remote Control address field.

    I have noticed that the clipboard is cleared after pasting the computer name\IP into the address field. I know its a small issue but it gets tiresome to have to go back and copy the computer name every time I use the remote viewer.

  12. Add source/certificate info to "Failed to decrypt cert PFX data" logging in Distmgr.log

    Add a better message to distmgr.log including which certificate and site system itā€™s having problems with.

    Right now you have to guess which DP is having issues, which can be a tedious and large task if you have a lot DPs.

    Jason Sandy has also suggested this to the product team earlier this year:

  13. Disable clipboard sharing

    It could be really useful to have a way to fully disable the clipboard sharing during a remote control session.
    We can do it with a registry key in HKCU but it can be enabled without admin rights, just by clicking on Action -> Enable Clipboard sharing.

    A better solution would be to disable it for a computer in HKLM or ideally directly in the SCCM console.

  14. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Remote Control features and improvments

    I would like to thank Microsoft to allow their customers to share new and innovative ideas and I would like to present mine from my experience as Desktop Management Engineer in my company.
    Initially we were using a comparative tool called LANDesk Management Suite and on the beginning of this year we have moved to SCCM 1511, since then I had received many complains about remote control comparing to the past experience.
    I really like SCCM as a whole and I think it is really good tool and really nice features and constant updates, but not the remote control.
    Iā€¦
