What is a Remote Server Access Agreement (RSAA)?
Commonly, it is required for SmarterTools support to access a server remotely in order to resolve an issue. To protect SmarterTools and the customer, we have implemented an agreement, known as an RSAA, that allows the customer to provide us remote access, and also revoke this access.
How do I give SmarterTools remote access to my server?
You will need to complete the RSAA to provide SmarterTools remote access to your server. To invoke a RSAA, follow these steps:
- Log into your account at the SmarterTools website.
- Click Support and RSAA.
- A ticket summary and Remote Server Access Agreements (RSAA) list will display. Click Submit RSAA.
- Read the agreement carefully. To agree to this, select the checkbox next to 'I ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS', and click Next.
- Fill in the fields requested. NOTE: Any remote server access, such as RDP or GoToMeeting, requires a phone ticket. It is also required that you select a ticket for the RSAA to apply to. SmarterTools will be coming from 188.8.131.52 IP address.
- Click Finish.
- Once you submit the RSAA, please reply to the open ticket to confirm that the RSAA has been completed.
