  1. 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.

  2. Please include a feature for remote control to record remote system administration sessions in compressed video format for advanced auditing

    Please include a feature for remote control to record remote system administration sessions in compressed video format for advanced auditing either in Configuration Manager 2016 or in Intune.

    This is being asked in some outsourcing scenarios. Text based Logs are not sufficient in some cases.

  3. Automatically Reconnect Remote Control Viewer After Client Restart

    When providing support using remote control, and the client needs to be restarted, I have to run a ping to see when the client is back up, and then restart remote control manually after waiting for the service to become available. Ideally remote control would perform these checks automatically once the client has been disconnected, and then reconnect as soon as the client is available again.

  5. Allow Remote Control on locked user sessions without prompting the user for permission

    This happens on Windows 10 if a workstation is locked - remote control acts as if the locked user has an active console session and prompts for permission to take control in that locked session.

    The Currently Logged On User column in 1806 is now extremely helpful for detecting these cases to force a reboot but I feel like I should be able to jump into a locked workstation if someone doesn't log out of their device.

    We particularly run into this in Higher-Ed with Classrooms/Labs where students/professors won't log off after their class (or hit the power button on…

  6. blank remote desktop

    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,

  7. Remote Control: Improve Multi-Monitor Experience

    Business Case (I know how you PMs love these):
    The current CB 1902 implementation is going to make this conversation part of our helpdesk script:
    “What screen is the app on?”
    “Can you move that window to the monitor where X is showing?”
    “No, not that one.”
    “Nope, still don’t’ see it”
    “Ok let me reconnect in full screen, please accept the prompt again.”
    “No no no, don’t hang up the phone, that’s not how this works.”
    “Ok, you should see a prompt to allow me to connect.”
    “Nope it’s there, trust me.”
    “Got it, thanks. Ok, let me move…

  9. 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 it’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:

  10. Remote Tools Multiple IP Addresses

    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.

  11. 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.

  17. allow shortcut keys without being forced to use full screen mode

    Until now it is only possible to use shortcut keys like Windows key and R for Run, if you're using full screen mode in Remote Control Viewer. This is really annoying sometimes.

    In 3rd party apps like Teamviewer and Netop it is possible to use shortcut keys without using full screen mode.

    Thanks in advance!

  18. 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.
