Remote Configuration

Remote configuration as a feature is a bit vague, but it is listed often enough that I wanted to include it here. It allows administrators to change device settings and network configurations from a remote control panel. Remote Configuration often comes as additional capabilities of a remote control solution. There is no clear definition of such features so they may vary significantly between vendors. I therefore would not recommend “remote configuration” as a checklist item but as a category where you may or may not find useful functionality hiding within a larger list of features. Examples may include the ability to remotely run a command line, to start and stop processes, or to force a logoff or restart of a remote system (see Remote Configuration features).

This is one of many systems management features covered here at AppDetails. When considering what features are important to you, we recommend you also contemplate the importance of a strong software inventory, application deployment, an intuitive user console and other systems management features.
