motivation
Motivation
  • Sometimes quick and simple system-related tasks need to be performed on a single machine.
  • Physically being present at the machine or logging into it remotely to access system tasks can waste valuable time.
  • Live Connect enables you to perform system level tasks on a single managed machine without interrupting the local user.
the live connect function
The Live Connect Function
  • This function displays by clicking any check-in icon next to any machine ID in the VSA.
  • Each Live Connect function enables you to perform tasks and functions for a single managed machine.
  • A menu of tabbed property sheets in this function provide access to various categories of information about the managed machine and functions that you can perform on it.

how to access
How to Access?
  • Live Connect can be accessed by clicking on the agent icon from any module function that includes the list of agents.
  • Live Connect requires a plug-in manager to be installed for the browser you are using.
live connect s plug in manager
Live Connect’s Plug-in Manager
  • Installation
    • The user is prompted to install Plug-in Manager at the time of first logon.
    • Installation of the Plug-in Manager can be deferred until Live Connect is started for the first time.
  • Updates
    • IE and Firefox browsers will detect plug-ins that are out-of-date and automatically download them in the background.
    • Browser restart may not be required for these two browsers.
    • Chrome and Safari browsers also detect out of date plug-ins and automatically download them in the background with little to no user interaction required.
lab exercises
Lab Exercises
  • The lab exercises you are about to conduct are intentionally trivial, showing you how most of the tasks performed using other modules of VSA can also be performed using Live Connect.
  • There is more than one way to perform the same task in VSA. As a general rule:
    • When performing several tasks on only one machine, use Live Connect.
    • When performing the same task on several machines, use VSA modules.
the home menu option
The Home Menu Option
  • This menu option displays the following tabs
    • Home: A customizable page. By default a welcome message is displayed. Customizations include the URL page of the service provider, some selected agent procedures, and some custom links to additional resources.
    • Change Logon: Allows changing the user\'s Access Portal logon information
    • Change Profile: Allows you to update the user\'s contact information.
reminder fiu s staff
Reminder: FIU’s Staff
  • In previous labs, you created the following staff members:
slide18
LAB
  • Using Live Connect set the logon and profile of the end user of ws1.
    • Username: eli-<USERNAME> (e.g., eli-johndoe)
    • Password: <PASSWORD> (i.e., user your own password)
    • Contact Name: Eli User
    • Email Address: [email protected]
    • Phone Number: 305-000-0001

  • The Live Connect function displays by clicking any check-in icon next to any machine ID in the VSA.
steps to install live connect plug in
Steps to Install Live Connect Plug-In
  • If this is the first time that you are running Live Connect, you may need to download and install “LiveConnect.exe”.
  • Follow the steps in the wizard closely.

  • If you were asked to restart your browser, simple close all the instances of your browser and reopen.
  • You would need to go back to the KServer and click on the ws1’s agent icon in a VSA function to run Live Connect.
  • If the plug-in has been properly installed, you should see the Live Connect function this time.

  • If you were required to restart your browser, return to the URL of the KServer provided to you under the Connection Info tab in your Virtual Lab interface and use your credentials to login to VSA.
  • If you were not required to restart your browser, you can skip this step.
steps to set machine user s logon and profile2
Steps to Set Machine User’s Logon and Profile

Home

  • The Home tab is the first tab displayed (not shown here).
    • If the Home tab is missing from your Live Connect function while logged in as a Master/System user (note: the tab is missing from this page), go to System > Customize > Live Connect > Portal Header, modify the Welcome Text, and click save.
    • The Home tab is labeled as “Home” by default, but the name can be customized using the System > Customize > Live Connect function.
    • In a SaaS VSA, you may see other tabs labeled as “IT Center”, “IT Toolkit”, and “IT Workbench”.
  • Typically the Home tab should display:
    • A welcome message and the webpage of the service provider
    • Some selected agent procedures to enable the Live Connect user to run them on the managed machine immediately.
    • Some custom links specified by the service provider.
  • Multiple customized Home tabs are possible as in the case of SaaS.

  • Note we add .fake at the end of the emails that do not exist and are used only for the purpose of lab exercises.
  • By doing so, we ensure the fiu.edu mail server will not be flooded with email notifications to non-existing emails.

Steps to Set Machine User’s Logon and Profile – Verify

Go to the URL of the KServer provided to you under the Connection Info tab in your Virtual Lab interface. 23

  • To verify the end user of ws1 is now able to use the new logon information to log into Access Portal, open an instance of another browser and login using the corresponding credentials.
  • In other words, if you were using IE to log into your VSA using your own account, then you need to use Chrome, for example, to log into the VSA, using eli-<USERNAME>).
steps to set machine user s logon and profile verify1
Steps to Set Machine User’s Logon and Profile – Verify
  • This is what the end user of ws1 would see after logging into Access Portal.
  • This interface is very similar to a Live Connect function, but it is called Access Portal, which signifies an end user is using this interface as the connection to his/her machine.
  • Note the Log Off link, which allows the machine user to log off from his machine remotely.
  • Also, note the limited access this user has to the typical functions available in a Live Connect session.
    • For example, the Home tabs are not available to the machine user.
    • As another example, if the user uses his/her own machine (e.g., while using ws1 at its terminal, double clicking on the Kaseya icon in the system tray, which opens the Access Portal in a browser), the Desktop Access menu option is disabled.
    • You can further refine the access of the machine user using System > Machine Role > Access Rights > Live Connect.

LAB
  • Establish a video chat session with the machine user on ws1.
slide181
Note
  • As ws1 is just a virtual machine and does not have a camera or a microphone, you will not see any videos and there will not be voice communications, of course.
  • You can try this exercise using two machines with cameras and microphones.
  • Neither of the two machines would need a Kaseya agent installed.
