Remote Access
It is possible in CodeTwo Exchange Rules 2010 to manage the program remotely.
Remote Access allows you to configure the program without physical access to Exchange Server. For example, the server installation can be controlled from another non-Exchange server or even a desktop computer. This means the Administrator can allow the Marketing Department to remotely configure the rules related to an advertising campaign and compose the banners that will be added by the program on the server. It is possible to set specific access rights for individual users and groups for enhanced control of the modifications that can be introduced by non-admin users.

In order to remotely connect your desktop to a server it is necessary to download and install the desktop version of the program on your machine. To do that, click the following download link.

To enable and configure the remote management of the program click Settings on the main toolbar and choose Remote access (Fig.1.).
