How to set computer access permissions?

 

Access permissions

Access permissions determine which users have access to a certain computer.

Access permissions can be configured to be:

  1. No computers
  2. All computers
  3. Only computers in its group
  4. Only computers based on group permission
  5. Only specific computers and computer groups

Where to configure access permissions

Log into your Gateway web console with the owner or admin account.

Navigate to web/management/users page, next to each user in the user list, click on the gear icon and choose Access permission.  

 

User Access Permissions

You can choose a specific user account and set the access permissions for the specific account.  This will override any group permissions settings even if you change the group permission settings, unless you change the settings back to follow the group access settings.  This is useful if you want to give each end-user only access to their own computer(s).

Access Permissions Options

Option 1 - No computers

The user will not be able to access any computers. This is the default option for a newly created user. 

Option 2 - All computers

The user will be able to access all computers.

Option 3 - Only computers in its group

The user will be able to access computers assigned to the same group.  

Option 4 - Only computers based on group access permission

Group access permission contains

  • No Computers (within this group)
  • Only computers in its group (within this group)
  • Only Specific computers and computer groups (all groups)

Option 5 - Only specific computers and computer groups

Splashtop is flexible enough to allow specific computers or a group of computers tied to specific users.

Meaning users can extend their access permission across all groups with more granular settings.

 

Group Access Permissions

If you want a group of users to follow the same access permissions, you can create a group, add all the users to that group, and set the access permissions for that group.

By default, the users will have access to only the computers in the same group. You can set "Only specific..." to choose multiple groups of computers or specific computers only.
