Remote Service Control

Like the Windows Services Console. Remote Service Control returns a list of all services running on the remote device. Refreshed every five seconds, this list includes: a service summary section (with the facility to execute commands). Name, Description, Status, Startup Type as well as Log On As information.

Right-click on the service or go to the Service drop-down to select the required action. Press Exit button to close the session.

  • Identify bottlenecks or resource-hogs by sorting and filtering columns through their headers.
  • View Service Details. This section displays similar information to the native Service Control Manager dialog including the read-only Service name, Display name, Description and Path.
  • Under General you can:

    • Change the service Startup type (to Automatic, Manual or Disabled...)
    • Perform a Start, Stop, Pause or Resume action on the service. The Service status reflects the current state

  • The Dependencies tab lists the system components the selected service depends on (dependencies). Also the system components that depend on the service (dependents).

Differences may exist between the dependency information in the native Service Control Manager and Remote Service Control.
