Open the Command Shell on the Remote Endpoint Using the Access Console

Remote command shell enables privileged users to open a virtual command line interface on remote computers. Users can then type locally but have the commands executed on the remote system. You can work from multiple shells. Note that scripts available to the user may also be executed on the remote computer from the screen sharing interface.

Your administrator can also enable remote shell recording so that a video of each shell instance can be viewed from the session report. If shell recording is enabled, a transcript of the command shell is also available.
