Remote Control from a PC or Mac

Protect your data by blanking the host display during a remote control session.

  1. On the Remote Control toolbar, click Options > Blank Screen. You can turn this feature on or off at any time.
  2. If prompted, install the DPMS driver (Display Power Management Services) driver.

    This happens the first time you use the screen blanking feature on the host.

    Not all monitors, video cards, motherboards, or BIOS support DPMS. Check with your hardware vendor if you experience problems with the DPMS driver. In case of incompatibility, you may not be able to use this feature with some host computers.

Anyone at the host device sees a blank screen on the physical monitor while the remote session is active.

Tip: When you connect to a computer for the first time, you are presented with the option to automatically blank the remote screen during all your future sessions. To change your remote control preferences, click Blank Screen in the toolbar.
