Detail of Remote Access & Remote Access To Server Console RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there ani't way to get an add-in to spy, kick or chat with current remote acess user who is browsing through the files sort of like any ftp server could.

    In additional is there anyway to go into the server console via a internet login so you could use some of the add ons function like view event logs, utorrent add in and etc.

    Also is there any add on that could show what % of cpu and ram being current used and the in/out bandwidth?

    Please let me know

  • Once you log into the WHS web site, you can change to the Computers tab and click "Connect to your Home Server." That will open the Home Server Console, same as opening it from your desktop PC.

  • The only notification in the Home Server Console of users being logged in via the Remote Access web site is in the lower left hand status bar panel, and any communication back to that user would require some manual modification of the aspx files that the user is using.

     

    While the Home Server Console (nor the larger SDK) doesn’t expose a supported way for our code to know who is logged in, you can manually parse through the latest events in the HomeServer event log to see who is connected.

     

    Beyond that actually monitoring what they are doing would require some manual work with IIS.

     

    As for viewing the Event Logs… If you install the Windows Home Server Toolkit v1, and then it’s add-in for the Home Server Console, it provides you (amongst other things), a button which will launch the MMC Event Log viewer.

     

    When it comes to CPU and ram being used... you are forced to either manually launch Task Manager or use WMI to query for those values.

    Use the add in program launcher. With that, it can take you right to the desktop and do what ever you want it to do. (once you connect to your home server of course)
