In Reports: What is the difference between Remote Session and Remote Access Session?

Looking for an explanation related to reports and genrating them:

 

 What is the difference between Remote Session and Remote Access Session?

 

- and then, in "Remote Sessions" between "Remote Control" and "Background Access"

 

Is Remote Session just the time a computer was accessed (and related info..ip address, time...)?

 

Once you choose Remote Access Session, there are two types of sessions on my report; Remote Control and Background Access?  I could assume the Remote Control the user was logged in and remotely controlling the host computer; then Background Access, user is signed into the host but not using the host remotely?

 

I read the user guide, did not include these options in discussion/explanation.

 

Any guidance would be appreciated....

 

Thank you.

Hi,

Remote Access Sessions only shows actual remote controls and is based off of gateway data.

Remote Sessions covers FM and background access, and is based off the host side reports.


In theory the latter should show RC sessions to be the same as the former, but due to the technology differences it may not always line up in every scenario.
