Q: Isn’t it like Teamviewer?
A: It is not the same as Teamviewer. ServerLink is a remote desktop, multiple users can log in to the host concurrently without affecting the user’s operation of the host.
Q: My company does not have a Server. The accounting system is installed on a Windows 10 workgroup PC. Can I log in remotely and work from home?
A: Yes you can, ServerLink supports Windows Professional 7, 8, 10 as hosts. It is also applicable for all versions of Windows Server 2008/2012/2016/2019.
Q: Our company uses a special Customized Application, can I use ServerLink to work from home?
A: Yes you can, as long as it is a Windows application.
Q: How does a computer that work from home connect to the company’s main PC / server?
A: Home-based computer uses a web browser to connect the main PC/ Server. It’s like your accounting software has become a WEB base application.
Q: Will remote employees see everything on the host?
A: It depends on the setting. ServerLink’s “Application Control” allow you to assign authorized applications to employees based on their needs. For example, some people can open the accounting system, some only have Word / Excel, and some workers can use both Accounting & H/R and even search for Shared Files & Folders.
Q: Can I print?
A: ServerLink has a built-in universal printing function that allows remote users to simply print files to a local printer.
Q: Do we have to turn on the host all the time?
A: Yes. This is because the remote users require to access host PC/Server.
Q: Will there be slow internet connection to access my company’s host at home?
A: Generally it will not affect the speed of the internet connection. However, the internet connection also depends on the CPU speed and memory of the host, the broadband speed and the numbers of simultaneous logins are count. A common accounting system should be fine and speedy.
Q: My host is a bit old. Can I install ServerLink to work from home?
A: We need to check before confirm. As long as the desktop computer is generally not more than 5 years old, it should be fine.
Q: Is there a network security issue?
A: Don’t worry, we use VPN connection. Only the authorized remote employees are able to connect with the host through VPN. The host is not exposed to the public network.
Q: Where is our data?
A: Your data is all in your hosting and you own 100% of your data. ServerLink simply provides a remote link between your host and the employees that you allow to access the data. No cloud services are provided. This will be your “private cloud” server.
Q: Do we need a Static IP address?
A: Not necessary. General broadband is sufficient.
Q: Other than Unifi and Streamyx, what other broadband service can we use?
A: On the server side, you can also use 4G Broadband such as Maxis, Digi, Celcom, YES4G. On the client side, any broadband is fine.
Q: Do we need to buy a separate firewall?
A: Of course it is good to have a firewall. You can also use Router VPN or free software VPN.
