  • Host: Enter the Host Name or the IP Address of the remote machine to which to connect.

  • Alias: Allows a different name or comment to be entered for the remote machine to make it more identifiable.

  • Authentication Type: Select the default authentication type for new connections. The credential fields/options in the dialog differ based on this selection. For additional information, see Authentication requirements and types.

  • Remember Security Credentials: Enable this option to save the credentials including User Name, Password, Domain, and Shared Secret for the selected Host Entry.

  • Connection Settings: Select one of the following options to define how Mini Remote Control should connect to the remote system.

    • Use Mini Remote Control Viewer: Connects to the Mini Remote Control client agent service installed on the remote system. If the client agent service is not already on the remote system, Mini Remote Control attempts to install the agent upon connection.

      Note: If you select this option, you also have the option to select or clear the Use Mini Remote Control Mirror Driver if available option. For additional information, see MRC Mirror Driver.

    • Use Remote Desktop (RDP): Connects to the remote system using the Microsoft Remote Desktop Program. When you select this option is enabled, Mini Remote Control opens the RDP view within the Mini Remote Control application to connect to that remote system.

    • Use VNC Viewer (Linux or Mac)*: Connects to a remote VNC server using the Remote Frame Buffer (RFB) protocol. Use this option to connect to Linux or Mac hosts. For additional information about the operating systems Mini Remote Control supports for VNC connections, see VNC setup.

    • Use Intel AMT KVM*: Connects to a remote Intel AMT KVM host using the Remote Frame Buffer (RFB) protocol. Use this option to connect to remote systems running on Intel vPro hardware.

      *Note: The Use VNC Viewer and Use Intel AMT KVM connection options both require the remote system to be set up to accept VNC connections. For additional information about setting up these VNC servers, see VNC setup.

  • Connect via Proxy Host: Select this option if you want to use a proxy host to connect to the remote system. This proxy information is separate from the DameWare Internet Proxy. Complete the following fields:

    • Port: Enter the port number for the proxy host Mini Remote Control should use to connect to the remote system.

    • Host: Enter or select the hostname for the proxy host Mini Remote Control should use to connect to the remote system.

  • Comments: Enter a custom description and/or other comments about the selected host.
