How do remote access servers work?

This gateway includes authentication, connectivity, and resource access services to provide ease of access and security measures.

Once a remote access server has been configured, system admins can provide users with login credentials and a secure portal via IP address or desktop application. FileCloud Drive provides remote access to files by fetching data from the mapped drive on demand without consuming permanent offline storage.

How do I remotely connect to a server?

The computer, remote desktop, or server must be turned on with a network connection. Both client and server applications must be installed and enabled on each device. Open the portal application or enter the IP address and enable permissions (including firewall settings) for remote connection.

How do I set up remote access to a server via a service provider?

Service providers often include remote access credentials along with portal information (through desktop applications or IP addresses).
