Attended Remote Control

MSP N-central's Attended Remote Control allows Product Administrators, SO Admin accounts, and SO Tech accounts to remotely connect to (and control) Windows devices that are not currently under management by MSP N-central.

Before they can respond to requests for remote desktop support, accounts must have remote control availability enabled.

There is currently no capability to send Ctrl-Alt-Del as a command to target devices during Attended Remote Control remote desktop support connections.

The following ports must be accessible to use Direct Connect or Attended Remote Control for remote control connections:

Port Number Port Location
MSP N-central Server Target Device
Inbound Outbound Inbound Outbound

Port 80


Port 443


Port 11438


Outbound connections establish a bidirectional tunnel.

If you have blocked port 80, then port 443 can be used.
