This is the default method to connect to the controlled computer. You need to enter the device ID of the controlled computer in Request Control section and click "Connect".

Method 2: Connect via Security Code

First the partner needs to enable Security Code in Controlled Computer-->Settings-->Recipient. And then, offers the device ID and Security Code to Master computer.

After that, in the master computer, enter the device ID of the controlled computer in Request Control section and click "Connect", then input security code to connect the controlled computer.
