A user name and password is required to remote into another computer on the Local Area Network. Which user name and password? Is it referring to the wife username and password? Thanks. Larry

Hey Larry, just a little bit of insight on how remote administration works.

1) When you connect to a remote user, your copy of Softros LAN
Messenger sends your token/security context (you get it
after logging into Windows).

2) The remote user’s copy of Softros LAN Messenger receives your
context, and then validates it on the domain controller, if there is
one. If not, the remote copy sends back a request for administrator
credentials.

If the security context is validated by the domain as a domain
administrator, the remote copy lets you open the remote desktop. If
the context is validated as a non-admin, it sends back a request for
administrator credentials.

If the network is not domain-based, the remote copy of Softros LAN
Messenger will always ask you to provide local (on the remote
computer) administrator credentials to let you in.
