Remote Control Notification not showing on clients

Recommended Posts

I'm currently running Pulseway OnPrem (7.0.0 build 120 release 283), and I'm using Pulseway Remote Control (6.6.3). 

 

The issue I have experienced is that the remote control notification doesn't always show up on the client when I attempt to remote control a session. We have 150+ computers in our environment and sometimes it works fine, and sometimes it doesn't, and the different behavior can even occur on the same machine from time to time.

Pulseway is configured to automatically allow the remote session if no one accept (or deny) the request within a minute, and I have noticed that even if the notification doesn't show up, the connection will still be established when the timer runs out. 

 

To make things clearer, here are two different scenarios. (Scenario 2 is the incorrect behavior)

Scenario 1:

Select computer -> Select active session -> Client notification "do you allow x to remote control" -> User press Allow -> Remote session established 

Scenario 2:

Select computer -> Select active session -> Client notification not shown -> 1 minute timeout -> Remote session established 

 

Are you guys aware of this? Has anyone else experienced the same behavior?

Hi @AC_Martin_J,

If you refer to the settings on your monitored system, then it is possible that you have configured Pulseway Group policy to override local settings in Pulseway Manager on the remote system.

Thanks for your reply! 

 

I can't find any misconfiguration regarding the group policies. This is a behavior that'll happen on our workstations from time to time. I can always remote control the clients, but the issue is that I sometimes have to wait one minute because the notification isn't shown (I know this because I'm talking to the end user via phone simultaneously). 

 

Have a look at the following pictures to see how I've configured it all:

      I use Pulseway to monitor my finicky Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Laptop and I noticed my laptop has thousands upon thousands of logs in Event Logs. I specifically need the 'Application Event Logs', 'Security' and 'System' event logs saved, ideally as a .CSV file. I don't know much PowerShell/Bash/VBScript, so I was hoping someone knows how to do this.

      If we install the agent manually (or via GPO) and go and do a discovery and deploy later, The probe will show ALL systems on the network as Discovered, including those that have the agent on them already and will allow me to push the agent again.
      If we deploy to those systems we get duplicate machines showing up and have to go clear them out.
      Is this by design? It would be good if the probe could detect if the machine has the agent on it already and not show it or at lest show it has the agent on it already.

      Hi there,
      Just wondering if this is an option. I attempted to do the following with batch, but didn't work due to the %appdata% value resolving to somewhere in C:\Windows.
      mkdir %appdata%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads copy "\\SERVER\SHARE\Teams Backup Images\*.jpg" %appdata%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads /y  
      Any ideas?
      Cheers,
      Joe

      Hi there,
      This might be a bit of a long shot - but I have an end client who's interested in deploying custom Teams issues with Pulseway (as there aren't many users in-office for obvious reasons).
      I've attempted to deploy this by pushing a batch script, to copy the backgrounds from a shared location. The backgrounds folder in question is located in the user's roaming appdata (%appdata%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads). For this reason I wasn't able to use %username% correctly in my batch script, as the script is being run by some Pulseway service, rather than as the local user account.
       
      Please let me know if you've any ideas and have a great day.
       
      Cheers,
      Joe

      Hi,
      I am trying to install GCPW (Google Credential Provider for Windows).
      I am running into issue where with it:
      <# This script downloads Google Credential Provider for Windows from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gcpw/, then installs and configures it. Windows administrator access is required to use the script. #> <# Set the following key to the domains you want to allow users to sign in from. For example: $domainsAllowedToLogin = "acme1.com,acme2.com" #> $domainsAllowedToLogin = "" Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Drawing Add-Type -AssemblyName PresentationFramework <# Check if one or more domains are set #> if ($domainsAllowedToLogin.Equals('')) { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('The list of domains cannot be empty! Please edit this script.', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit 5 } function Is-Admin() { $admin = [bool](([System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).groups -match 'S-1-5-32-544') return $admin } <# Check if the current user is an admin and exit if they aren't. #> if (-not (Is-Admin)) { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Please run as administrator!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit 5 } <# Choose the GCPW file to download. 32-bit and 64-bit versions have different names #> $gcpwFileName = 'gcpwstandaloneenterprise.msi' if ([Environment]::Is64BitOperatingSystem) { $gcpwFileName = 'gcpwstandaloneenterprise64.msi' } <# Download the GCPW installer. #> $gcpwUrlPrefix = 'https://dl.google.com/credentialprovider/' $gcpwUri = $gcpwUrlPrefix + $gcpwFileName Write-Host 'Downloading GCPW from' $gcpwUri Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $gcpwUri -OutFile $gcpwFileName <# Run the GCPW installer and wait for the installation to finish #> $arguments = "/i "$gcpwFileName"" $installProcess = (Start-Process msiexec.exe -ArgumentList $arguments -PassThru -Wait) <# Check if installation was successful #> if ($installProcess.ExitCode -ne 0) { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Installation failed!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit $installProcess.ExitCode } else { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Installation completed successfully!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Info') } <# Set the required registry key with the allowed domains #> $registryPath = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Google\GCPW' $name = 'domains_allowed_to_login' [microsoft.win32.registry]::SetValue($registryPath, $name, $domainsAllowedToLogin) $domains = Get-ItemPropertyValue HKLM:\Software\Google\GCPW -Name $name if ($domains -eq $domainsAllowedToLogin) { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Configuration completed successfully!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Info') } else { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Could not write to registry. Configuration was not completed.', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') }
       
      I have tried the following:
      1. Run from batch file -- error "run as admin" but admin parameter was added
      2. Run from PowerShell --  error "leaves the script running forever"
      3. Pushed file to user and ran it (1) PowerShell -- error "needs run as admin" but admin parameter was added (2) batch -- error "script non-responsive"
