I have many remote customers performing evaluations who cannot use any type of screen sharing tools like Web-ex.  Therefore I have created a series of Evaluation Videos where I demonstrate step-by-step instructions for them to install and configure the Centrify software, and I’ve placed these videos on YouTube.  Below are my latest videos for the newly released Centrify Infrastructure Services 2018.
