MeshCentral2 - Maps, Interfaces, Wake, Raspberry Pi

MeshCentral 2 development keeps moving forward. So much is going on, we have to just make a list of new features and changes. MeshCentral2 is still very much in beta , lots work still to be done before it is ready for day-to-day use. This said, much progress is being made. Here is a main recap of the last few weeks: Location and mapping support . The MeshAgent 2 can now attempt to get its location using its public IP address. MeshCentral 2 then records this information and can display location information on a live map along with colored pins showing the connectivity status of the device. Default mapping information uses OpenStreetMap . Network interface information . The latest MeshAgent 2 and MeshCentral 2 now cooperate to gather device network interface information. This is useful for all sorts of usages including remote device wake-up. Server Wake-on-LAN support . When MeshCentral 2 is not in WAN-only mode, it will not send out wake-on-LAN packets upon request.

MeshCentral2 - WAN/LAN modes & Intel AMT CIRA

MeshCentral2 development keeps moving forward and this week, we got two really interesting new features added. As you will see, MeshCentral2 is positioning to be a server that can be used in a wide array of usages. From small networks with a few computers on a local network to larger deployments on a commercial cloud services. MeshCentral2 is being designed to handle both and everything in between. Added support for LAN and WAN modes . This is one of the big innovations that will get MeshCentral2 noticed. Historically, you always needed a fixed IP/Host to setup MeshCentral, making things difficult for small deployments. Now MeshCentral2 has a new “LAN mode” where mesh agents discover the server location using multicast. For small deployments, it’s easier than ever to get a management solution setup. Let’s take a look at the differences between the two modes noting that it’s possible to run MeshCentral2 in both modes simultaneously, offering both feature sets at the same
