Allowing Remote Access Between Windows Clients

You can configure a remote client computer that hosts services to let local clients access those services.

Before You Begin

  • To configure remote access services on a client, you must be part of a security association that includes a role with the VPN Management permission. For information about security associations, see Security Association Overview.
  • The network gateway to be used by the local client to establish connections must be configured. See Setting Up the Commvault Network Gateway.
  • Set up Commvault VPN services in your CommCell environment. See Setting Up VPN Services.


  1. From the CommCell Console, expand Client Computers, right-click the remote client, and then click Properties.

    The Client Computer Properties dialog box appears.

  2. Click Network.

    The Network Properties for Client dialog box appears.

  3. On the Remote Client Access tab, select Allow connecting to this client's services across firewall via proxy, and then select a proxy through which the remote client can access services on the client.
  4. Under Services, select one or more services that the remote client may access. RDP is selected by default.
  5. Under Users, select the users to give access to, as follows:
    1. Select the Any owner of this client check box to give access to all owners.
    2. Select the Specify users or user groups check box to give access to those you add to the list, as follows:
      1. Click Add, and then click Add User, Add User Group or Add External Group.

        Note: The Add User dialog box shows users who logged on to the CommServe or who were created using the Creating a User procedure. Adding an external group does not make the users in the group appear in the list.

      2. In the list, click users or user groups, and then click OK.
      3. To add more users or user groups, click Add and then repeat the process.

        Remote client access control supports combining users and user groups.

  6. Click OK.
