Setup Fleet Manager for Windows

Comments Comments Off by MobileIQ on January 1, 2015

Headlight can run from any standard browser like Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Internet Explorer, but using the Fleet Manager application takes an extra couple of steps. You’ll need to configure a Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) to run Fleet Manager. This utility come with all versions of Windows and the setup instructions are similar.

Obtain Fleet Manager login credentials

Log into Headlight, click the Setup link (upper right corner), click the Settings tab and click the Users link. This will display a list of all active users for the Headlight account. The first entry highlighted in grey is the Headlight administrator account. Copy/paste the username and password from this screen for the next step. These are the login credentials that will be used for Fleet Manager.

Configure Remote Desktop Connection

The Remote Desktop Connection software is pre-installed with Windows. Use Start | Search to search for remote and select Remote Desktop Connection from the default Apps result list. Click Show Options to enter the login credentials from the preceding step.

Username: xxxxxxxxxx

Enter your login credentials from Headlight

Username: xxxxxxxxxx
Password: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (16 characters total)

Note: Some version of Remote Desktop Connection don’t have the domain field. Instead, you can use MOBILEIQ\username in the username field to specify the domain.

Click Connect
If everything is setup properly, you’ll be connected to the Headlight server and Fleet Manager will automatically launch.


Verify the correct user credentials are being used, especially the password. It’s case-sensitive and easy to mistype. If you still can’t connect, check with your system administrator and verify your computer is allowed to access remote servers. Many computer networks have security policies that prohibit users from using Remote Desktop Connection to run applications.
