Remote Machine Statuses

Remote Shutdown is used to operate remote Machines, so the status of access to each remote Machine is important information. When activated, Remote Shutdown determines the access status for each remote Machine and stores it in the program database together with the last access time, so you can always see this information when required.

Check State

Check State

The Check State button from the Machines Ribbon group on the contextual Network page should be used to refresh the access status of the selected remote Machines.

The access status of each remote Machine is displayed in the Access Status column of the All Machines view Pic 1.
