Comodo Unite allows you to take control of your computer(s) even when you are away, through Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connection or through Desktop Sharing session as required. For example, you may need to access your home computer while you are in office and vice-versa.
To enable this, Comodo Unite allows you to sign-in at different computers with the same Comodo Unite account. You can even configure your computers to automatically sign-in to Comodo Unite with your account on Windows startup, which enables you to sign-in even without your physical presence in front of the computer. For more details on signing-in with Windows start-up, refer to the section Service .
- For the Desktop Sharing Session, the Comodo Unite application in the remote computer should have been configured to allow automatic remote access for your user account, to allow the connection automatically or through Password/Certificate authentication. If certification type authentication type is selected, both the computers should have your client/email certificate installed. Refer to Desktop Sharing > Access Control for more details on configuration of authentication type.
Comodo Unite should have been started and signed-in with your own account. Refer to the section Service for details on how to configure for automatic sign-in to Comodo Unite on Windows Start-up.
The 'My Computers' group under the 'Networks' tab lists the computers in which Comodo Unite has been signed in with your own account concurrently.
Right clicking on the computer name opens a context sensitive menu with the following options:
Desktop Control - Initiates a Desktop Sharing session to take access the remote computer. Depending on the Desktop Sharing policy set in the remote computer, your connection will be allowed automatically or you have to authenticate your self with your password, client certificate or both.
- Copy IP Address - Allows you to quickly copy (then paste) the user’s unique Comodo Unite IP address into an external application such as telnet, Windows RDP or multiplayer game. This is useful if the application in question does not automatically detect your Unite virtual network.
If a Comodo Unite network is available, some applications (such as telnet, games or remote desktop) will automatically detect other users on this virtual network and provide options to connect to them. If, however, the application/game does not do this, then you can use the ‘Copy IP’ feature to manually create a connection.
- For example, in the case of a multiplayer game:
- First make sure you are logged into Unite
- Make sure your opponent(s) are also logged into Unite
- Paste the Unite IP of your opponent into the in-game interface (if required) to connect to them
If either you or your opponent are not logged into Unite then this will not work.
Property - Opens the contact details dialog.
Logout - Signs you out of Comodo Unite in the remote computer.
