Browser Access – Manage Distributed Operations Easily | TallyPrime Powered by AWS



It is easier than ever to manage your business on the go! The Self Service portal now lets you access your virtual computer through the web browser, so you can access your data wherever you are and whenever you want.

If you are travelling and don’t have your system with you, you can easily login to the Self Service portal from any system with your credentials and connect to your virtual computer with one click, giving you the opportunity to use TallyPrime anywhere for your business without having to install a client.


To be able to access your virtual computer you will require the following:

  • A user account with valid credentials to login to the Self Service Portal
  • Latest versions of browsers that are compatible with the Self Service portal for the best experience.
    Operating System Browser
    Windows 7 SP1 or above Chrome
    Mac 10.12 or above Chrome and Safari
    Linux Chrome (in testing)
    Note: Last tested version - Chrome 96

Connect to Virtual Computer

You can connect to your virtual computer through the Computer & User Management portal and access your data in TallyPrime without having to install a client on your local system.

  1. Open the login screen of the portal.
  2. Enter your Tally.NET IDPassword, and Secure PIN to login.
    If you are logging in for the first time to the portal, you will be prompted to set up a new Secure PIN.
  3. On the Computer & User Management portal, under Action against the account name, click the ellipse sign (…), and select Open Virtual Computer.

    This will open your virtual computer in a new tab.

If the virtual computer is in shutdown state, it will take around five minutes for the first user to connect to it since the system will start and connect. Following this, subsequent users will have direct access to the virtual computer and can connect to it immediately since the machine is already running.
However, you can start your virtual machine by clicking Start under the Action column. This will start your virtual machine in around 5 mins and selecting Open Virtual Computer afterwards will connect you to the virtual computer immediately.

Note: The Start option will be displayed on the portal only when the virtual computer is in shutdown state. Whenever you receive a connection error while connecting to the virtual computer, clicking on the Close Tab button closes the tab and allows you to connect from the Self Service portal. The existing DCV features will remain unchanged in the browser as well.

Disconnect the Virtual Computer

Once you have completed your work, you can save your data, disconnect, and shut down the virtual computer from the Self Service portal to ensure that your data remains secure. There are two ways to disconnect your virtual computer from the Self Service portal.

  • Close the tab manually to disconnect your virtual computer.
  • Click the computer name that appears on the top-right corner and select Disconnect.
    You can close the tab manually after you have disconnected your virtual computer.
Note: If your virtual computer is idle for 45 minutes due to inactivity, it will be disconnected automatically. You can close the tab manually and reconnect to continue your work when required.

Know Your Virtual Computer

There will be no change in the functionality of Virtual Computer when accessed via Virtual Computer Connection Client. However, there are a few differences when using a browser to access a virtual computer. For more information refer to Manage Distributed Operations Easily topic.

Download from virtual computer

When we download the file from a virtual computer connected through a browser, the file is downloaded to the browser’s download path. On the other hand, when we download the file from a virtual computer using the Virtual Computer Connection client, the files are downloaded to the desktop.

Availability of screen space

The browser’s features – address bar, title bar, and so on; occupy the screen space of TallyPrime when accessed via a browser. However, you can increase the available space to operate TallyPrime conveniently.

  • Browser Fullscreen: If you place your cursor outside of TallyPrime screen, pressing F11 displays the browser screen in full screen mode with access to DCV toolbar and pressing F11 again will exit the full screen mode.

    However, when your cursor is over the TallyPrime screen, F11 opens the Company Features.
  • DCV Fullscreen: If you click on the Fullscreen icon in the top-left corner of the DCV toolbar, you will be able to expand the screen and use TallyPrime to its fullest extent. Pressing Esc will return the screen to its normal mode.

    The following screen appears after that.
