2Host Configuration Wizard Simplifies Installation
hopTo Work consists of two elements, a server-side-installed piece of software, referred to as a host agent, and a client-side installation, which enables access from a remote device. The host agent runs on a Windows Server System (2008r2 or 2012r2) and requires the installation of RDP, RemoteApp, Active Directory, target applications and a few other elements. Otherwise, the install is completely automated.
3Building Custom Controls and Menus
One of the more powerful features of hopTo Work is its capability to wrap new menu controls and keystroke commands around an application interface to make that application easier to use on a smartphone or tablet. Administrators can build custom commands, shortcuts and controls with the hopTo Work MAX editor.

5Mobile Device Client Only Accesses Data, Apps Remotely
Android and IOS devices can install the remote access client application from the respective Google play store or the Apple App Store. The client application is what provides the interface and access to the hopTo Work host. The client app also adds security and provides the “wrappers” to reformat applications for use on a mobile device. No data or applications are stored on the mobile device, thanks to the use of virtualization technology on the host.
6Users Login via Remote Client
After inputting some basic information, such as the URL of the hopTo Work host and other pertinent information provided by the hopTo Work administrator, users can login to the host with their standard, Active Directory credentials. The login screen also can show multiple hopTo Work hosts, allowing the user to pick what host to access using touch.

8Cloud Services Boost Data Security
One unique feature of the hopTo Client is the ability to integrate cloud services into the remote working environment. That allows users to access files shared with others, or launch cloud-hosted file archives, such as OneDrive and Google Drive. Those files are opened on the host system rather than downloaded to the local device to help keep data secure.
