The computer that is accessing a remote computer needs a licensed copy of
JAWS running but the server end just needs a copy of JAWS that has to be
installed by the network administrator. If network administrators are
unfimiliar with JAWS they will hesitate with the installation of JAWS on
the server.

You might want to look into Team Viewer as a way to access another computer
that doesn't have JAWS running on it for admin tech support.
It will require a copy of Team Viewer installed on both computers. If it is
a comercial business your are working for, you might want to look into a
legal licensed copy of Team Viewer if that will work for your situation.

Hi Charles. You are correct. JAWS Tandem requires that the screen
reader be installed on both computers. Remote access would also
require JAWS to be on your computer, and on the server side or client
computer. There are several ways to utilize Remote access. That
would depend on how the company does what they do to allow someone
like yourself to remote into their system. RDP, Remote Desktop
Protocol is one method. Also JAWS supports some Citrix connections as
well. Hope this helps.

Doesn't JAWS need to be on the destination computer in both cases?
Isn't the Tandem Server only accessible if both computers have JAWS on
them? Doesn't Remote Desktop require JAWES on both ends?

I'll take a shot:
JAWS has a feature called Tandem Direct which requires the remote
computer user to type a code to connect to the controler via the
Tandem server or, to answer your question, you can pay a one time
charge for a capability for JAWS to use the facility in Windows called
Remote Desktop to be able to connect and interact with the remote
computer with or without the need to depend on JAWS to be on the remote

I don't think using a VPN would provide the necessary interaction of
JAWS to take control of the remote computer like connecting via the
Tandem server would provide.
I don't know of any other means of achieving what you're wanting to
do, but perhaps others will provide some input.

I can work as an IT resource for a non-profit organization. I will
need to remote into several machines to achieve my job. Is there a
tool which will allow me to, using jaws, remote into several systems,
achieve the task needed, and then to allow the person to continue
their work? I wish to do this remotely. Would VPN allow that to
happen? Is there a way to achieve this without having JAWS on the
other end; at least in the employee's systems? Thanks!
