What should be Noted before Using Surveilstar?

Hi, let me explain the working theory of Surveilstar monitoring software first. The Software is comprised of Server, Console and Agent.  Well, agents are installed on the computers you want to keep an eye on.  Server will invisibly collect all data from the agents. It is a special part of the software which can be installed separately or on the same computer as the console. Please also note that you may have to leave this server computer open when you are out. So it can automatically collect and store agents’ data for you to watch when you come back.  Meanwhile, you sill need a console on your own computer to view the monitoring results . It also enables you to remotely control those monitored computers. Well, if you need more than 1 console for people with different management levels, like you can view & control pcs yourself, senior managers will only view data without the privilege to remove an agent from a particular user or something like that.  So, are we clear? Agents + Server + Console/Consoles, or Agents + Server & Console (+ Consoles, would be available). By the way, you may be wondering if you could set a console on a Mac. The answer is “YES”! You can install only console on your Mac and connect it to the server via LAN or something. We say Surveilstar is a Windows-based computer, which just implies Surveilstar agents can not be placed on Mac and you will not be able to monitor Macs with Surveilstar. But of course you can monitor Windows computers on a Mac. OK, here are things to be noted before using Surveilstar to monitor employee/ computers/kids/… 1. System Requirements- Make sure your computers fit the following system requirements. OS Basic Recommended Database – MSDE SP4 / SQL Server 2005 … Continue reading
