SCCM 2012 Windows Deployment

My company has a team which helps us deploying the windows images from SCCM to the workstations. But we dont have access to see whats happening on the SCCM end.

Can someone guide me on how can I check on what step the build is on the workstation remotely without having access to the SCCM server.

You can check the smsts.log file on the Client, but as Long as it's not on the Network, or joined to the Domain, it's not that easy to Access the Client, but you could give it a try.
The smsts.log file contains the Task Sequence process and is located in different folders depending on the TS Status.

This is a good way, but how to connect to the building system when the permissions are not set?
What permission is needed to connect to the system in building state?
You would need to try that with the local Administrator Account when Windows is currentlry beeing installed.
During Windows PE Phase i don't know if the Firewall is on and you're able to connect...
From the PC to the Network is much more easier than from the Network to the PC as it's not completely configured during Installation.
Can't you get in contact with the SCCM guys and ask how to solve that Problem, or give you Access to reporting in SCCM as there are Reports to Show the current Installation state of a system
