We are often on a hunt for tools capable of offering the ability to work simultaneously on several computers in different remote access modes and offer a wide range of tools for administration. There are many options out there to try out. LiteManager Free is one of them. It is a simple Windows-based program that lets you access your computer from another location.
LiteManager Free for Windows PC
The product is available in two versions
- LiteManager Free
- LiteManager Pro
The Free edition includes the main functions and capabilities of the LiteManager program and offers up to 30 free licenses for remote access to 30 computers.
Installing the program is simple. However, the package includes two modules, namely,
- Lite Manager Server
- LiteManager Viewer
A user is instructed to install the server app on the system he intends to monitor or would like to have remote access. While its cousin, LiteManager Viewer, needs to be installed on the system from where you want to access it.
Upon completing the installation, a window appears on your computer screen where you have to enter your password. Following the security window, open the general tab under the Options window. Here, you can modify some general settings as per your choice. For instance, you can keep the icon in the system tray, etc.
Once the Server module configurations are set up, switch to Viewer utility. To use the application, you will be required to establish a connection. So, switch to the new connection tab and specify all the connection details to access the server module.
If all goes well, you’ll observe the connection being set up to the server. The entire screen of the remote computer will be visible to your other system screen, and you can see it working with your remote computer’s keyboard and mouse.
The GUI (Graphical User Interface) of the LiteManager is very straightforward and self-explanatory. It hardly requires any guidance. You can download it here.
