Remote control the ARC Application (and your desktop) over a web browser. Use the Config button to load the configuration window. Specify the TCP Port and usernames for authentication.

Main Menu Features

  • Remote Control: View the ARC screen and interact with it via left mouse clicks. Using this feature on the same PC as ARC will produce unusable results. Only use this feature on remote devices.
  • Movement: Provides a simple movement interface that controls which ever movement panel is added to your project.
  • Camera List: Lists the cameras currently added to your project and links to view them.
  • Script Console: A console to send EZ-Script commands to the HTTP Server and interact with other controls using the ControlCommand() syntax. Information on how to send ez-script via the HTTP URL is also provided on this page.
  • Session List: Displays the sessions interacting with this HTTP server instance by IP Address and username.
  • About: Information about the HTTP Server and ARC.

Internet Access

To access your http server remotely over the internet with a router, consult the routers instruction manual on port forwarding.


This HTTP Server control provides static web pages for interacting with ARC. For custom web pages, use the HTTP Server (Custom) control.
