Remote Desktop Access

adminKnowledge Base

Remote Desktop is available to all Diligex Managed computers.  It allows you to remote into your work computer from a remote web browser.  It’s a convenient method to access your data and core applications.

Although streaming media, audio, video from your work computer will pass through to your local computer over the remote connection, the performance may be sub-optimal.  We recommend that you conduct video calls, do streaming, play music, etc. through your local computer.

The following are not supported:

  • Printing from your work computer to a local printer
  • Scanning from a local scanner to your work computer
  • Webcams from your local computer to your work computer

Remote Desktop Prerequisites

We recommend using Firefox, Chrome or Safari to initiate remote access.  Internet Explorer is not supported

Pop-up blockers must allow the site:

Your employer needs to approve the setup of remote access.  If you never received an invite with a remote access confirmation code from Diligex, then you likely do not have remote desktop access setup and need to request it from your employer.
