If the client doesn't get started, is it appropriate to call it a
machine controlled via iTALC?

With what configuration step? And when can I configure it? Do you
mean "if you answer yes, the configuring will be done automatically"?
"You can configure to start the applet" is strange word-order.

It also all feels a bit repetitive. How about:
_Description: Start the iTALC client on desktop session startup?
For the desktop session to be controlled via iTALC, the iTALC client
applet needs to be running, listening on a TCP/IP socket for authorized
VNC-like connections from the iTALC master.
It can be configured to start automatically on desktop session startup,
but for security reasons this is not the default.

There are strict regulations about question marks, but I don't know if
we've got any rules about exclamation marks and trailing ellipses. I
would probably recommend ending with just:
Please try again.
Oh, checking DevRef I see (184.108.40.206.7) that the rule for "Type: text"
is "This type is now considered obsolete: don't use it." Maybe it
should be "Type: error"?
