Wayk 3.0 - prompt for username

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Wayk x64 installed as service. Service running ok. It ask for username ( dont know - which to use ). After running wayk as application - its ok - no username prompt.


Password should be hidden for user in service mode. Or multiple users with different credentials would be great....

Hi Petr,

The new Secure Remote Delegation (SRD) username + password authentication mode uses system authentication. In this case, you can authenticate with any Windows user that is member of either the "Administrators" or "Remote Desktop Users" group. Think of the current unattended access as a form of administrative access where any administrative user can connect to the machine.

In the future, we will make it possible to configure which group is allowed to connect using Wayk Now. For the initial version, we thought the simplest solution was to reuse a built-in group (Administrators + Remote Desktop Users) to filter which user can connect remotely.

As for Secure Remote Password (SRP) and Prompt for Permission (PFP) authentication modes, they are available only if a user is currently logged in with the Wayk Now program running. In other words, the previous "attended access" modes will keep working as they did with previous versions of Wayk Now.


Best regards,

If I understand - username should be any windows user with remote access. In Domain environment i use DOMAIN\Username and domain password. Are Administrators like Domain Admin group?


In the future you are planing unattended access more like Te*Vi*er behavior? Sometime we need to do on remote PC more comlicated tasks like dis/connecting to domain, clearing cashed users etc.

Hi Petr,

As long as the user is a member of either the "Administrators" or "Remote Desktop Users" standard built-in Windows group, it should work, both for local and domain accounts. If it's not the case, please report it smile

As for the future, yes, we do plan on extending the unattended access to simplify remote management of systems with complicated tasks. In the current version, you may want to take a look at the Remote Execution feature. This feature requires a license on the client, but you can request a trial license if you want to give it a shot. We will keep on improving our feature set to make unattended management easier.

Best regards,

Marc-André Moreau
