Set Up Your Free Trial

The instructions below show how to connect to your remote environment using a Windows 10 machine, but you can adapt them to use with any RDP.

Step 1

  • Click your Microsoft home button and type “Remote Desktop Connection” (or “RDP” or “MSTSC”) in the search field.
  • Click the “Remote Desktop Connection” icon.

Step 2

  • Copy the target machine name from your Welcome Email and paste into the “Computer” field. The name should look like:
    ec2-<ip address and region indicator>.compute.amazonaws.com
  • Click ”Connect.”
  • If you are running “User Account Control” a dialogue box will appear asking if you trust this remote connection. Click “Connect” to continue.

Step 3

  • Next you will be asked to enter your credentials. The role of “Administrator” should already be selected.
    • If “Administrator” is not already selected, click “more choices” and then “use a different account.”
    • Enter “Administrator” in the email field.
  • Copy the password from your Welcome Email and paste it into the ”Administrator” password field.
  • Click “OK.”
  • You will be alerted that the identity of the remote computer cannot be verified.
  • Click “yes” you want to connect anyway.

Step 4

You are now connected to your free trial virtual environment! You can access the LanScope Cat Console with these credentials:

  • Console Account: Administrator
  • Password: motex

By default, the Monitoring Agent is installed on your virtual machine as the first device you can monitor. You can connect up to 9 more devices as part of your free trial.

Next Steps:

  • After logging into your virtual environment (learn how), you’re ready to start exploring and configuring the LanScope Cat Console.
  • Click the “LanScope Cat Console” icon on the desktop of your virtual environment.
