Datto Web Remote Not Working Fix:

  1. Browser Version

When it comes down to the Web Remote sessions, it can be initiated from different devices, including macOS, Windows, Android, Linux, and iOS devices. However, you have to use the latest version of the internet browsers to make sure it supports Web Remote. For instance, you’ve to update the Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, or Google Chrome version. The simplest way of updating the browser is to delete the internet browser and reinstall it again.

  1. Application Listing

In case you have already tried to upgrade the internet browser function but the Web Remote is still not working on your Mac computer, we recommend that you check the application listing. This is because for the remote to work properly, you have to list the application. For this purpose, you have to open the system preferences, go to the security and privacy tab, and tap on the privacy button. Then, make sure that Vine Server and AEM agents are selected in full disk access, accessibility, and screen recording. Once you have fixed this setting, the remote should start working.

  1. Power Saving Mode

If you have already fixed the application listing and other browser settings but the remote is still not operational, there are chances that you have put the computer in power-saving mode. For this reason, we recommend that you turn off the power-saving mode and reboot the computer. This happens because the computer won’t be able to support some products when you are using it in power save mode.

  1. Disconnect & Reconnect

Another solution that you can try is to disconnect the remote from the device. For this reason, you will need to close the internet browser’s tab and the connection will be terminated. Also, the connection is automatically terminated after thirty minutes if you don’t perform an activity on the browser tab. All in all, once you’ve terminated the connection, open the remote again and it should start working.

  1. Reboot The CagService

If reconnecting the remote doesn’t work, you should reboot the CagService. For this purpose, you have to tap on the Windows button, type in “services” and open the services app. In this app, you’ve to ensure that the AEMAgent.exe is working properly and make sure you reboot CagService. Once done, reboot the device and try using the remote again.
