Access the Command Shell on the Remote Endpoint

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