Open Command Prompt On A Remote PC With Usoris Remote Viewer

Remote-Utilities-Usoris-Remote-Command-PromptThe Command Prompt is so useful on our own computers that it’d be even better to administer other PCs on the network with this same method. Maybe you need to flush the DNS or remove more than one file at a time. Instead of going to that computer every time you need to perform these actions and more, simply install Usoris Remote Viewer once and then have access henceforth.

There are many tools in Remote Viewer but we’ll focus on just the “Terminal” option for now.


Usoris Utilities




There are two parts to the “Usoris Utilities” program. One is the “Host” and the other is called the “Viewer.” The host refers to the computer that will be controlled. The viewer is the one viewing, or controlling, the other computer.

Install Usoris Remote Host


The downloaded file will be a ZIP file, so just unzip it with 7-Zip and open the file called “rut.host” on any computer you want to remote into. By this, I mean any computer that you want to control with the command prompt, in this example.

Follow through the steps of the install. When you get to the step that looks like this image below, you can keep all of these checked or uncheck the “Install virtual printer” if you wish.

You’ll then be asked to enter a password that the viewer will use to remote into this computer with.

Now that the host has been configured, the viewer needs a way to access that computer. Choose to open the “rut.viewer” from the downloaded ZIP file.

After install open the program and click the “Help > License Key Storage” menu item.
