NetSupport School for Mac provides a quick and easy method to connect to Students located in a particular room. When the Tutor is started, it will connect to the Student machines located in the same room. ‘Roaming’ Students also have the option of connecting to a designated room.

Configuring the room at the Tutor

  1. Select {File}{Configuration} from the Tutor Console drop-down menu.
  2. Select Student Selection.

  1. Click the Connect to Students in Room(s) option and enter the required room name.
  2. Click Prompt at startup if you want the Tutor to be prompted to enter a room value each time the Tutor starts.
  3. Click OK.

Configuring the room at the Student
The room settings can also be configured at the Student in the NetSupport School Student Configurator. This allows you to configure whether the computer is always located in the same room or if this is a mobile (roaming) computer.

  1. Navigate to /Applications/NetSupport/NetSupportSchool.
  2. Double click on the Config icon.
  3. When prompted, enter an admin user name and password.
  4. Select General.

  1. Select one of the following options depending on your environment:
      • This computer is always located in the following room:
        Select this option if the computer is always located in the same classroom and enter the room name.
      • This is a mobile computer and may be in one of the following rooms:
        Select this option if this is a mobile computer and is located in different rooms, enter the required rooms and separate each value with a comma.
      • This is a mobile computer and its room will be entered manually
        Select this option if this is a mobile computer and you would like the Student to manually select the room that they are currently in.

Note: Roaming Students who are configured to manually enter the room, do this from the Student icon in the menu bar. If the Student icon is hidden in the menu bar using the ‘Quiet Mode’ setting in the User Interface tab, the Students will not be able to select a room.
