Connect to Remote PC and Manage Services

Application as Service lets you easily connect to the remote PC via LAN or Internet and manage all the remote services as if they were local ones. Also, you can create a new system service on the remote computer or run application as service there.

Since Application as Service v.4.0 you do not need to install Application as Service on the remote computer to connect to it and manage services there. Application as Service should be installed on the local PC only.

To connect to the remote PC, do the following:

1. Click "Add computer" button on Toolbar:
