Hi Experts,
I have a PC in the closet where I need to access to time to time.
Remote Desktop Connection is not optional because I need to access what I can see on the screen.
I am trying remote assistance but the problem is that I have to go to the closet to accept and allow to take control.
Also when I end the session, I have to create another session.
What if I don't ever want to go to the closet or create another session?
Can I use the same session and take a control right away without intervention?
Thanks in advance

If you're interested in another solution NetSupport works nicely.  You can open a session to the computer in the closet, view's it screen, share or take control on the pc. I use it to remotely manage all of my pcs on my network.

remote assistance will not work for this.

you could use VNC. there are free versions of it running around.

VNC isnt web based. It is a client/server application.

You'll have to purchase NetSupport, but quite honestly it's worth it.

For a free app, you can try iTalc.  I've never used it, but I heard it works as well as NetSupport (I swear by Netsupport-  I've been using it for the last 6 years)
