Quick Guide: Access the Remote Command Shell

Remote command shell enables a privileged user to open a virtual command line interface to the remote computer. The user can then type locally but have the commands executed on the remote computer. You can work from multiple shells. Note that scripts available to the user may also be executed on the remote computer from the screen sharing interface.

Your administrator can also enable remote shell recording so that a video of each shell can be later viewed from the session report. If shell recording is enabled, a transcript of the command shell will also be available.

Note that localization is limited to 1-byte characters for this feature. The use of 2-byte characters (certain language packs) may change expected behavior of some features.
