How To – Manage a Host

With MyQuickCloud Host Management, an administrator can remotely check who is currently connected and disconnect users or even restart the host.

Disconnecting users is often useful when an application (like QuickBooks for instance) is not performing as it should. In most cases, disconnecting that users session is enough to solve it.
