This brand-new free utility from EMCO allows network administrators to access the command-line prompt on PCs located in a local network in order to execute commands and run processes remotely.
Online PR News – 26-September-2011 – – EMCO Software, a provider of software solutions for computer network management, announced the release of a new EMCO Remote Console freeware utility. This Windows utility with a graphic user interface allows network administrators and other IT staff to obtain access to the command-line prompt on Windows computers located in local networks. Remote Console can be used to run processes and execute Windows commands on remote computers. Consoles that access remote computers provide a set of features similar to the local command-line prompt.
Remote Console is a utility with a graphic user interface that provides access to network computers. It can scan a local network to detect available computers and display them on the screen. A network administrator can select a PC to connect to and open an interactive command-line prompt. Access to remote computers requires administrative permissions, whereas it's possible to specify different credentials to access different domains, workgroups and computers.
Network administrators can open multiple consoles for the same PC or different PCs and execute Windows commands and processes remotely. Such interaction with a remote computer is performed in the background and doesn't interrupt the remote user's session. Every opened console is represented on the screen as a separate tab and offers typical features available in a local command-line session, such as interruption of the current task, re-execution of previously entered commands, etc.
"Remote Console is a light-weight network application, since it doesn't require installation of client modules and configuration of remote computers. Only administrative permissions are required to access computers remotely. Traditionally, the setup and configuration of Telnet, SSH and other consoles has been a time-consuming task, so now network administrators can consider using the free Remote Console as an alternative", Thorarinn Oskarsson, CEO at EMCO Software, said.
EMCO Remote Console is available as a fully-functional freeware. It can run under Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2000 both x86 and x64 platforms.
