Client - Access Control

Access Control allows you to request access to resources that have been restricted on the server. By default, they are all set to Allow.

As explained in the Options – Access Control topic, the user of the server can set each feature to Allow, Confirm or Disable.


If a feature is disabled before starting a remote session, you cannot enable it during an active session.



The user can view the remote desktop.

If this option is disabled, the user sees a black screen with the following image at the center of the screen. wayk_now_viewing_disabled


The user can interact (keyboard and mouse) with the remote desktop.


Interact implies Viewing. Therefore, enabling Interact enables Viewing as well.
