Blacksands utilizes a proprietary client for connection from the back of the Virtual Receiver to the target PC. There are two basic PC connection modes:
- Read Only – provides the User with near real-time screen visualization. This is does NOT allow the User the ability to upload, download, or modify the PC environment, in any way.
- Full Access – provides the User with simultaneous control and visualization of the PC. Control is limited to KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse). The User is not able to upload or download anything into the PC environment directly.
Each mode is a unique Service. This means that a single PC will likely have two (2) Services with unique setups in the Blacksands Manager (a Read Only and a Full Access), allowing for individual devices to be given different access control
- A PC, like any Service, must be routable from the Blacksands Virtual Receiver with port 5900 accessible.
- A PC must have the BsIRDS server installed.
In the Blacksands Manager, select ‘Create a New Service’ icon and fill out the fields as you would to establish any Service. (for more information on creating a Service – see Create a Service 3.2.1) To delineate between ‘Read Only ‘and ‘Full Access’, the Administrator will input the appropriate URI code in the appropriate field for the Service once the Service has been created.
