DameWare Mini Remote Control is an agent-based remote control application and therefore consists of two parts:

  • The Mini Remote Control application

  • The Mini Remote Control client agent service

The Mini Remote Control application is the program installed on your local system that you use to connect to the Mini Remote Control client agent and control the remote computers.

The Mini Remote Control client agent service is the software component deployed to computers that allows 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.

When the Mini Remote Control application attempts to connect to the Mini Remote Control client agent, the client agent authenticates the credentials locally before allowing the connection. The installed client agent service does not pose a security risk to the remote computer because all user privileges are granted by the operating system on the remote computer. Using Mini Remote Control does not provide users with greater privileges than they would have if they logged on to the computer locally. Every privilege the Mini Remote Control user has must be allowed by the remote computer.
