Align Support application requires port 443 (HTTPS) to be opened for outbound traffic.

Some of the Support Providers may require additional ports opened for communications.
The ports used can be seen in the ‘Connect To:’ field when station is selected.


Remote Session

Align Support application holds a list of support stations, grouped by the support provider and/or locale.

When clients call, they should be given a support station name.
Selecting a specific support station will show its address in the “Connect To:” field (which can also be edited manually).
Selecting the ‘head’ of any of the support groups will select the first support station in that group.

Pressing “Connect” will create the Support session that will enable the support station to see the client’s computer.
Any number of connections can be done, all stay active until closed from the support station or disconnected from the client computer.

Pressing “Disconnect” will disconnect all active Support connections.
