Connect to remote computer from ENS console/ scan a remote computer

Jump to solution
From a VSE console you can connect to a remote computer and scan it from another machine (we do this in some situations in case a system's McAfee installation has been compromised). I cannot find the same function in ENS, does it exist?

Re: Connect to remote computer from ENS console/ scan a remote computer

Hi @SJVAPCD 

Unfortunately, this feature from VSE was not carried over to ENS directly.

One solution that you could potentially use to work around this, however, is to map the remote computer's c$ share to a letter drive on the computer from which you would like to conduct the scan, and create a custom on demand scan to scan only that drive letter.

Hopefully that helps answer your question.

Thank you,

Mitchell Buehler
