Remote Employee Monitoring via Cloud

Install the Application in the Cloud

By installing Net Monitor for Employees Professional to the Cloud you can do a remote employee monitoring over different networks and Internet.

You need to install those two modules to start with Cloud supported remote employee monitoring:

  • Net Monitor for Employees Professional Console (see Install Console)
  • Net Monitor for Employees Agent
Stealth Install

Installing the Net Monitor for Employees Agent

The "Net Monitor for Employees Agent" must be installed on all remote computers that you want to monitor. To do this, you must have administrative privileges.

NOTE:

On Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 you need to install update from this web page:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/971513/description-of-the-windows-automation-api

Update has to be installed on all computers where agent is installed and is necessarily to successfully block web pages on various web browsers.

Agent can be manually or remotely installed.

Manual Agent Installation (Preferred)

To manually install an agent please go to remote computer and run the installation program.

In the first installation window click on second option Install "Net Monitor for Employees Agent".

On the end of installation you will have to configure an agent. To do so please read the chapter Agent Configuration.

Agent can be installed in stealth mode (select "Stealth Agent Install" check box).

In such way no program group is created, application does not appear in Add/Remove programs and no icon is displayed.

Agent Configuration

During installation, you need to type the password that protects the configuration and access to the agent.

Here, simply select one password and remember it. Note that the default port on which the agent operates is 4495. You can change this port during installation or, later on (Advanced Configuration tab).

If you use a firewall, you must open the used port.

You can choose to make this computer accessible only via Cloud connection by selecting "Use only cloud connection", which allows you to monitor computer over the Internet. Cloud license is subscription based.

Create Cloud Account (needed only for a first time)

If you selected that you want to use Cloud connection then you will be asked to use existing Cloud account or to create a new Cloud account.

If you are creating a Cloud account for a first time, your trial Cloud license will be automatically enabled.

NOTE:

Cloud account can also be created directly from the monitoring console using menu "Cloud / Create Cloud account".

To monitor your computer over the Internet, you need to have the Cloud account.

If you don't have the Cloud account yet then you can create it here by selecting "Create new Cloud account":

Cloud login Create cloud account

You will receive an email with account activation code after confirming this step:

NOTE:

If you didn't receive an email, please check your SPAM folder or contact support.

Use Existing Cloud Account (if you already created the Cloud account)

If you already created a Cloud account before then previous steps are not needed and you can choose "Use existing cloud account" and enter your Cloud account username & password:

Click "Next" and confirm that you want to monitor this computer:

After that your remote computer was added to the cloud and it can be added to the console using menu "Cloud / Add computers from Cloud".
