1. Introduction
Netop Remote Control Mobile allows support staff and system administrators to gain secure
remote access to the enterprise and provide real-time screen transfer and control over the
keyboard and mouse of any machine running a compatible version of Netop Remote Control on
Windows operating systems.
Note: To access and support a Windows machine using Netop Remote Control Mobile, the
target machine must be running a Netop Remote Control Host version 10.0 or later. For more
information, please visit our web site www.netop.com.
2. Installing the App
Netop Remote Control Mobile is available within the Apple App Store. Use your iTunes account
to access and download the necessary software to your iOS device. The app is compatible with
any iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch device running iOS version 5 or later.
3. Connecting to a Target Device
Netop Remote Control Mobile enables you to remotely access and support devices within in the
same network or over the Internet.
Smart Connectivity
The connectivity is improved by automatically deciding the fastest route for each connection. If
direct connection (using the TCP protocol) is possible, it will be used. Thus instead of going
through WebConnect, you can connect directly to devices that may be in the same network,
achieving faster connection time and screen sharing. All this is automatically achieved without
you having to decide which communication profile should be used.
Using the app, support staff can connect directly to a compatible Netop Remote Control Hosts
running on a Windows machine. The default TCP protocol makes it ideal for connections to take
place over a local Wi-Fi environment where target devices with a Netop Host are typically
already waiting for connections.
The connection can also be established across 3G, 4G and other environments as long as the
two devices can see each other and the firewalls do not restrict the communication between
them.
Note: The communication is done over TCP on port 6502.
Netop WebConnect brings together the flexibility of Internet-based connectivity and the
unrivalled security that you expect from a global provider of enterprise remote access and
support solutions. WebConnect is a connection service for Netop applications that allows your
service desk to reach any machine across the Internet – even on unmanaged networks. With
WebConnect, support staff can provide remote support to customers without reconfiguring
firewalls or compromising security.

4. Enter the Host ID, IP or Computer name fort he device you want to connect to and select
the Connect to button or choose a target device from the Recent, Favorite or Internet lists:
 Recent – previous connection attempts.
 Favorites – devices you added as Favorites.
 Internet –devices available and accepting connections that are connected through the
corresponding WebConnect account.
Note: In order to retrieve the Host ID of the device please check How to retrieve the Host ID.
5. Authenticate based on the dialog triggered by the Host (e.g. if the Host is configured with
Default access privileges, you will need to fill in the corresponding password).
In case the end device is configured to accept connections authenticated using Windows
Security Management, you will be prompted to fill in the corresponding credentials:
Username, Password and Domain.
If the verification is against the Active Directory (AD), then Domain stands for the actual AD
name. If it is against the local Windows device, then the Domain represents the Computer
name.

Once authenticated you should be successfully connected to the target device.
Note: Once your mobile device goes into stand by, the remote control session exists.
How to configure the WebConnect account
To enable the internet connectivity, navigate to Settings > Connectivity, move Use
WebConnect to the ON position and enter the corresponding Webconect settings (e.g. URL,
User, Password and Domain).
Note: Make sure you test the settings by selecting Test settings.

How to retrieve the Host ID
To retrieve the Host ID from a target device, open the Netop Host on the computer and check
the Host ID under the General tab.
4. Adding a CUG License
Closed User Group (CUG) licenses provide another layer of security by allowing customers to
use a special license key within their Netop Remote Control applications.
The standard app does not require a license when connecting to a non-CUG Host but, if using
CUG on your Hosts, you should enter the CUG license in the app to connect. The license
entered in the app must be the legacy version CUG license key for the Guest.
The CUG options are available through the About section via the Settings tab:

After switching the Use CUG License option to ON, enter their CUG license key.
Once validated and saved, the last six characters on the CUG license will be displayed in the
About section:
