Step 3
You will now be able to configure the logging options you want for your Realtime-Spy logging module. Configure your monitoring options, as shown below, and specify a name you want to name your logging module file as (ie: vacation_pictures.exe). This is the file that is ran on the computer you want to monitor to install and start the monitoring process. Once you have your options set click "Create Module" to create your logging module.

Note: If you are emailing the logging module to your remote computer, please use the 'Compress Module to ZIP File for Sending' option. This will place your module in a ZIP file for emailing the module. If you are downloading the module directly to your computer that you want to monitor, you do not need to use the 'Compress' option.

Step 4
After your module is created you will be given a download link, as shown below. Click the download link to immediately download the logging module file. In this guide we are using Chrome as our web-browser to download. Most browsers (such as Chrome) will save the file to your Downloads folder, or prompt you to choose a location to save it to.

Step 5
Now it is time to send out the file to the remote PC. In this guide we are using Thunderbird for our email client.

Click the "Write" button to open a new mail window. In other email clients this may be labeled as "Create Message", "Compose", "New Mail", "Create Mail", etc.

Do you have physical access to the computer you want to monitor? If you have physical access to the computer you want to monitor you can simply run the logging module you created above directly on the computer to be monitored, then proceed to Step 8 below.

Step 7
You will now have to enter a recipient for the file you are sending, as well as an email subject and body. Notice the size of the Realtime-Spy file - it should be approximately 100-120kb at all times!

Once you are ready to go click Send to send the email!

Note: Your email will have your own email address in the 'From" field, and the 'To' field will contain the actual email address of the user on your computer you want to send the module to. The subject and mail body can be anything.

Step 8
Once you send out the file or install it on the computer yourself, you can then login to your Realtime-Spy webspace to view logs. This is located at www.realtime-spy.com/members/

Enter in your username/password at the prompt to continue!

Step 9
You will be presented with your Realtime-Spy webspace. Here you can select and view computers that were logged with the file you sent out.

Note: Computers will only appear after users have downloaded and executed the file you have sent them.
