  • Splashtop Enterprise: Application makes it possible to connect your PC to the target device running the Splashtop Streamer.
  • Splashtop Streamer is the software which needs to be installed and running on the remote computer you want to access. It streams audio and video to the client device.


General guidelines for installation:
