How to Connect to Your Own Machine at Home/Work
Comodo Unite enables to take control of your desktop at home while you are at work and vice-versa. For example, you might have logged on to your office network from your desktop at office or your laptop and wish to have access to your desktop at home at required situations. Comodo Unite provides an easy way to connect to your own machine from another machine seamlessly and securely, without you sitting in front the machine to accept the connection.
To have the ability to connect to your home machine from the machine at work:
Comodo Unite should have been started and signed-in with your own account in your remote computer. Refer to the section Servive for details on how to configure for automatic sign-in to Comodo Unite on Windows Start-up.
You must have logged-in to Comodo Unite with the same account in the computer you are using now.
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.
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
Property - Opens the contact details dialog.
Logout - Signs you out of Comodo Unite in the remote computer.
Now your home computer is ready for access from your work computer.
