There are two parts to the Mini Remote Control program:
The Mini Remote Control application
The Mini Remote Control client agent service
The Mini Remote Control application is the actual program installed on your local system. Use the Mini Remote Control application to control the remote systems in your environment. The Mini Remote Control client agent service is a software component you deploy to remote systems to allow the Mini Remote Control application to control them. This service runs in the background of the remote system under the Local System account. When there is not an active Mini Remote Control connection, the service uses little to none of the remote system's CPU.
The Windows operating system requires location Administrator rights to install, remove, start, stop, or upgrade the Mini Remote Control client agent service on remote systems. For more information about how to install the client agent service, see Client agent service installation methods.
Note: All Mini Remote Control users must authenticate to the remote systems they connect to, so simply having the client agent service installed does not pose any security risk. For additional information about security, see Security and encryption overview.
