Dameware Remote Support Centralized and Mini Remote Control Centralized overview
Dameware Remote Support and Dameware Mini Remote Control provide you with tools to troubleshoot and manage systems and support end users. If you are a customer, you are using either a centralized version of Dameware, or a stand-alone version of Dameware. Each centralized license includes a stand-alone license. If you are not a customer, and are interested in evaluating Dameware, you can download a version of Dameware Remote Support or Dameware Mini Remote Control, fully-functional for 14 days. After the evaluation period, you can convert your evaluation license to a production license by obtaining and applying a license key.
Due to improved security standards, Dameware 12.2 and later versions are not compatible with agent versions earlier than version 12.2. Agents must be removed and version 12.2 or later installed again through the application or re-installed via the agent installer.
