To remotely access a Windows or Mac computer using Splashtop, the Splashtop agent (what we call Splashtop streamer) must be installed on that computer.
Deploy Splashtop streamer onto all the computers you want to remotely access, in 3 simple steps:
- Create a deployment package on my.splashtop.com.
A deployment package consists of a deployment streamer installer and a unique 12-digit code.
See the quick tutorial on creating deployment packages.
You can also customize the options in each deployment package.
- Click on the "Deploy" button for the deployment package you just created
You'll see the options to share the deployment package as a link or to download the actual installer.
- Have your users install the streamer
You can send the deployment package link to your users. By following the link, your users can download the streamer installer and see the 12-digit code to enter into their streamer.
You can also send the streamer installer file directly to your users (via Dropbox, email, etc.), for them to run. You can embed the deployment code into the streamer installer file, to save your users the step of entering it manually.
Or install the streamer yourself
Streamer installation on Windows or Mac computers can be completed silently via command line executable or MSI. This is the easiest way to automatically deploy to a large number of computers, if you have a RMM tool, Microsoft SCCM, or Microsoft Group Policy.
If you're running the installer manually on each computer, you can embed the deployment code into the installer to save you the step of entering the code manually.
After streamer is installed and the deployment code is entered, the computer will be accessible by all admins under this Splashtop Business account.
Admins can further configure the access permissions via my.splashtop.com.
