When attempting to use native client remote control from the console these error messages come up: <UL> <LI>Waiting for clients to accept connection. <LI>Not connected! <LI>Unable to make image thread connection to the remote machine. A client screen will not be available. <LI>Unable to connect to the client. Please make sure the client has the Altiris Client Agent running.</LI></UL>
There is a bug in the console where associated ports are not closed or assigned back to the proper console session.
The workaround is to install remote consoles through the "add component" function of the Deployment Solution install and use remote consoles to work with Deployment Solution and remote control clients. <P></P>Use Axinstall.exe located on the Deployment Server Console. <P> <TABLE width="100%" border=0> <TBODY> <TR> <TD class=header colSpan=2>Answer: <BR><BR></TD></TR> <TR> <TD width="2%"></TD> <TD> <OL> <LI>Go to DSSetup folder and run <STRONG>AxInstall.exe</STRONG>.
