To install Rustdesk and use it with Tactical RMM you need to the the following.

  1. Install your own RustDesk Server, following their official docs and open ports.
  2. Create the following scripts (all are powershell).
  3. Create a URL Action.
  4. Create custom fields for the RustDesk ID and password.
  5. Create collector tasks and Script Checks
  6. Enjoy :)

Install Script Replace IPADDRESS and KEY

$ErrorActionPreference= 'silentlycontinue'

If (!(Test-Path c:\Temp)) {
  New-Item -ItemType Directory -Force -Path c:\Temp > null

cd c:\Temp

powershell Invoke-WebRequest "" -Outfile "rustdesk.exe"
Start-Process .\rustdesk.exe --silent-install -wait

$ServiceName = 'Rustdesk'
$arrService = Get-Service -Name $ServiceName -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

if ($arrService -eq $null)
    Start-Sleep -seconds 20

while ($arrService.Status -ne 'Running')
    Start-Service $ServiceName
    Start-Sleep -seconds 5
net stop rustdesk

net start rustdesk

RustDesk Get ID (Collector Script needs Custom Agent Field)

$ErrorActionPreference= 'silentlycontinue'

cd $env:ProgramFiles\RustDesk\
.\RustDesk.exe --get-id | out-host

Create Script to be used as a Check

$ErrorActionPreference= 'silentlycontinue'

$confirmation_file = "C:\program files\RustDesk\rdrunonce.txt"

if ([System.IO.File]::Exists($confirmation_file)) {
    echo "Confirmation file exists"
    exit 0
    echo "Confirmation file doesn't exists"
    exit 1

RustDesk Set and Get Password (Collector Script needs Custom Agent Field) to run on Check Failure

$ErrorActionPreference= 'silentlycontinue'

$confirmation_file = "C:\program files\RustDesk\rdrunonce.txt"

net stop rustdesk > null
$ProcessActive = Get-Process rustdesk -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
if($ProcessActive -ne $null)
stop-process -ProcessName rustdesk -Force

$rustdesk_pw = (-join ((65..90) + (97..122) | Get-Random -Count 12 | % {[char]$_})) 
Start-Process "$env:ProgramFiles\RustDesk\RustDesk.exe" "--password $rustdesk_pw" -wait
Write-Output $rustdesk_pw

net start rustdesk > null

New-Item $confirmation_file > null

RustDesk URL Action


Add Custom Agent Fields
