Question:

How do you configure Stealth View Access for Remote Control ?

 

 

Environment:   

CA Client Automation - All Versions

                            

Answer:

By default, the Stealth View privilege is not enabled for all users and Host Computers. In order to enable this functionality,

you must enable the functionality via User(s) and Computers.

This privilege can be set as a User Policy to allow/disallow certain users/groups.

This can also be set as an Agent Policy to allow/disallow this type of connection to certain PCs.

User Privilege:

  Go to the Address Book (providing you have rights to make changes) in which the Computer resides that you are trying to initiate a connection.
  Right click on the Address Book, choose Properties, Users tab, then Highlight the user, and click on "Permissions".

  The Permissions of the User will pop up. Next to "Stealth View", check the box under the "Allow" column.

Agent Policy
  Configure the Agent Policy for the Computer Group that the computer resides:

  Expand the Configuration Policy section and select the Agent Policy of the computer you want to enable Stealth Mode.

  Double click on "Host" then double click on "General". At approximately 13 rows down is the option "Host: Enable stealth view connections."

  Double click on the "Host: Enable stealth view connections." The currently policy and values will be shown.

  Using the drop down box for the Value field choose "True" to allow "Stealth View" Connections or "False" to not allow "Stealth View"
  connections to this computer,  then OK to retain the changes.
