Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Remote Login

When I remote into the server, I am able to open the SEPM Console with no problem.  However, I am trying to set up an icon on my desktop to get to the console quicker.  When I point the icon to the file on the server I get "Authentication Error.  Please Try Again".  I have shared the folder that the file is located (giving only myself permission to open it) but still I am unable to open from my desktop.  Any suggestions?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The SEPM console is accessed via browser and has to be configure on the IIS as well. There are a lot of details which is on Chapter 2 of the administrator guide.

To access the SEPM remote console you need to install it on you machine.

Please follow these steps:

Open internet explorer:
-> type in http://(servername):9090
This will open the page for Symantec endpoint protection manager remote console.
Click on the given link and install the console, and it will create a desktop shortcut.
Now you can click on it and you should be able to login remotely without accessing the server.
