Set up Parsec to use Chip Render servers

Parsec provides the power of a remote desktop, in crystal clear, interactive HD. Connecting through Parsec to work is a replaceable solution in case the remote desktop is unable to be used. Some cases using Parsec when:

  • Some types of 3D software need to enable the video card, Adobe Dimension for example, while Remote Desktop Connection disables GPU on those.
  • NV Link is disabled when using Remote Desktop Connection (RDP).
  • When using RDP but it’s slow and a bit laggy (this may be due to your location).
  • When using RDP for purposes of playing games or streaming, etc.
Note: There’s a combination between Parsec and a VPN – ZeroTier to connect to Chip Render servers.

To set up Parsec

1. Create a Parsec account here

2. Download Parsec

Go to the downloads page and download the version of Parsec

Note: If Parsec doesn’t successfully install, it’s most likely because your anti-virus is blocking the installation. Be sure your anti-virus doesn’t block it. The common culprit is Segurazo/Santivirus/Segantivirus, it often causes installation problems and most of our users don’t even know they have it installed. If you have it, uninstall it completely and restart your computer. In newer variants of Segurazo, you will need to use safe mode and use something like Malwarebytes to remove it.
3. Install Parsec
Note: Parsec needs setting up on both your personal computer and your Chip Render server.

To use Chip Render servers through Parsec

1. Log in

  • Log in to your Parsec account on your PC.
  • Log in to your Parsec account on the Chip Render server that is being used through .rdp file first.

2. Verify login attempt

  • Whenever you login from a new location on Parsec, you’ll receive an email to verify your login attempt from a new IP address.


em>In case you cannot find the email, try the following guide:

  • Search for emails titled ‘Verify a login attempt from a new location’.
  • Check your spam box for emails of the same title.
  • If you have received confirmation emails from Parsec before, make sure that the email Parsec just sent you didn’t automatically get “threaded” (hidden) beneath an older email they sent you. You can identify the email by the IP address, which will match the one shown on the login screen.

Once successfully log in on both your PC and Chip Render server, the Computers tab will display 2 devices like the following photo:
