This application is launched automatically at startup and presents itself in the system tray. It allows you to keep an eye on your servers activity.

With HTTPS you can connect to your ARGUS TV core remotely - see ICN WIKI INLINE.PNG Remotely connect your local ARGUS TV installation.

The MMC path setting is needed to be able to launch the management console when requested by using a right click on the tray icon and selecting “Open Management Console”.
