About the Web console

The Management Suite Web console enables IT professionals to automate systems management tasks and proactively control desktops, servers and mobile devices. From the Web console, you can:

The Web console uses the infrastructure of your existing network to establish connections with the devices it manages. This greatly simplifies the job of managing your existing network, whether you manage a small network or a large enterprise environment, even when you aren't at your desk.

The Web console runs on any Windows-based computer using these browsers and plugins:

The Web console offers a subset of Management Suite's functionality from the convenience of a Web browser. The Management Suite console is your main resource for managing computers, but the Web console is useful when the management console isn't available.

To run the Web console
  1. From a networked computer, open a Web browser.
  2. In the Address field at the top of the browser, enter the URL that will connect you to the site hosting the Web console pages (typically, http://<webservername>/remote).
  3. If a login dialog appears, enter your Windows username and password for the core you're connecting to and click OK.
  4. Once you authenticate, links in the left navigation pane appear for the tasks you have rights to perform, such as creating queries, remote controlling clients, deploying software, and viewing reports.

NOTE: If you don't know the URL to the Web console pages
Contact the person who installed the Web console, most likely the network administrator for your site.

NOTE: If you can't see some of the left navigation pane links
It's because your network administrator is most likely using LANDesk Management Suite's role-based administration or feature-level security option that limits you to performing certain tasks that you have the rights to do. For more information about role-based administration and feature-level security, see "Role-based administration" in the LANDesk Management Suite User's Guide.
