Use this tab to specify default settings for hardware-dependent
Remote Tools Client Agent features.
Note Settings in the Advanced
tab do not automatically propagate to existing clients. If you
configure these settings after installation, the changes will not
affect clients that already have the Remote Tools Client Agent
installed, unless you use the procedures in Changing Advanced Tab Settings for Existing
Default compression for remote control
Lets you specify the type of compression you want to use for
remote control sessions. Select from the following options:
Run Length Encoding (RLE) compression, which compresses screen
data by 40 percent. RLE is the default setting, which you can use
for slower clients that have processors with speeds less than 100
Lempel-Ziv compression, which provides data compression for
higher-speed clients. Clients with at least a 100 MHz Pentium
processor achieve better compression with Lempel-Ziv. However,
slower clients should not use the Lempel-Ziv option.
Automatically determines the best compression based on each
Default remote access protocol
Lets you specify the default network protocol that clients use
to issue Remote Tools commands. Select from the following options:
The Windows sockets protocol. If most of your clients run the
TCP/IP protocol, select this option.
The NetBIOS protocol. If most of your clients run only a
NetBIOS protocol (such as NetBEUI), select this option. If you
select this option, you must also select a Lana number to use for
the connection. Valid entries range from 0 through 7.
The NetWare IPX protocol. If most of your clients run NetWare
IPX, select this option.
Install accelerated screen transfer on Windows NT clients
Specifies installation of software that speeds up Remote Tools
screen transfers on Windows NT clients. Select this option to
install the software on any Windows NT client that runs a
video driver listed in the Video Drivers table.
A table of video drivers that run the accelerated screen
transfer software. By default, the table lists drivers that
Microsoft has tested and found to be compatible with the
accelerated screen transfer program. To add drivers to the table,
click to open the New
Video Driver dialog box. To delete drivers from this table,
select the driver you want to delete, and then click .
Note Accelerated screen transfer
software is installed on any client that uses a driver listed in
the table. It does not matter which video driver the
administrator's computer is running.
