How do I add a computer to a team?¶
If you only enable direct connectivity, that computer is not part of your team.
To see the (cloud-enabled) computers in your team, sign in to your RealVNC account and navigate to the Computers page.
Home and Professional subscriptions¶
There’s nothing to do here. Because cloud is the only connectivity method, computers are automatically added to your team as soon as you sign in to VNC Server desk-side at install-time, to apply your subscription.
If you sign in to VNC Server desk-side at install-time in the same way as Home and Professional, you’re prompted to enable cloud connectivity. There’s nothing more to do.
However, if you choose to apply your subscription using a license key, there is a separate step to add a computer to your team. Run the appropriate command below on that computer as an administrator, either desk-side or remotely. Optionally, you can also join one or more existing computer groups in order to restrict discovery at the same time:
<install-dir>\vncserver.exe -service -joinCloud TOKEN [-joinGroup GROUP-NAME]...
sudo /Library/vnc/vncserver -service -joinCloud TOKEN [-joinGroup GROUP-NAME]...
sudo vncserver-x11 -service -joinCloud TOKEN [-joinGroup GROUP-NAME]...
To obtain a cloud connectivity token, navigate to the Deployment page of your account.
vncserver.exe -service -joinCloud your-token -joinGroup Sales -joinGroup Win
...enables cloud connectivity for the computer (providing the token is valid) and adds it to the Sales and Win groups.
If there’s an intermediate proxy server, supply location and credentials. For example, under Windows:
- SOCKS proxy server:
vncserver.exe -service -proxyserver=socks://SERVER:PORT -proxyusername=NAME -proxypassword=OBFUSCATED-PWD -joinCloud TOKEN
- HTTP proxy server:
vncserver.exe -service -proxyserver=http://SERVER:PORT -proxyusername=NAME -proxypassword=OBFUSCATED-PWD -joinCloud TOKEN
If the proxy server requires a password, first obfuscate that password using the
vncpasswd utility as follows:
