Connecting to a Remote Server

You can run U-Move on your local desktop computer and use it to connect to a remote server. You can perform all the functions of U-Move through the remote connection.

To connect to a remote server click on Connect (upper-left).

You will be prompted to enter the name of the remote server. Type the name into the text box. You can use the Network tree to click on the server's icon to insert the server's name into the text box. (The name will not appear if the server's network security settings hide it.)

Click on Connect to connect to the remote server.

First Connection: U-Move Remote Agent

The first time you connect to a remote server, U-Move will ask for permission to install the U-Move Remote Agent service on it. This may take a couple minutes. The U-Move Remote Agent service only runs when you start a remote connection. You can uninstall the U-Move Remote Agent with the Control Panel (Programs and Features). U-Move is always safe to install on a source computer.

Click on the license code that you wish to send. Then click on Ok. U-Move will re-install the U-Move Remote Agent with the selected license code.
