MeshCommander - Internationalization, KVM Recording, Bug Fixes

Image
Today, MeshCommander v0.8.6 was published with more features and bug fixes. By far the most important improvement to MeshCommander is its new internationalization support with, in addition to English, 9 new languages supported including Japanese and Simplified Chinese. This will help broaden the number of people that can make use of Intel® AMT in their native language. In addition to this, KVM session recoding is now built-into MeshCommander, a feature that was only available on MeshCentral in the past. In Detail:
Multi-language support. The Windows MSI installed version of MeshCommander now offers an additional menu to switch between 10 languages. Supported languages: Dutch, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, German, Chinese, Portuguese, Russian in addition to English. These are machine translations and since MeshCentral is open source, the community is very much encouraged to help improve the translations. The translation file is on GitHub here. The same format and tools used for Me…

MeshCentral - Web RDP Client, Multi-Language Router, Custom Consent, 7k downloads

This week we got a new feature that was called a “mini killer application” by a GitHub community member. Following the announcement that the noVNC web-based client was added to MeshCentral last week, we added a built-in web-based RDP client too. You can now RDP into a Windows computer from any modern web browser over the Internet. For Windows operating systems that support multiple RDP sessions, that is also supported allowing many users to log into a single server at the same time. In addition, this week we have MeshCentral Router now internationalized into many languages, additional customizations and a fun fact about MeshCentral downloads. In detail:
Built-in RDP client. The main new feature this week is the addition of a web-based RDP client to MeshCentral. This is thanks to the MSTSC.js and node-rdp.js open source projects which are the bases for this feature. Once activated in the MeshCentral configuration file, users can click on a device and click the “Web RDP” link to go to th…

MeshCentral - noVNC, Battery, Router, Cross-domain management

Image
This week we got one more bag full of new features that continue to improve the flexibility and depth of MeshCentral. We have a new built-in web-based Remote Frame Buffer (RFB) client called noVNC which allows administrators to make remote desktop connections to devices that support that protocol (notably macOS). We have new battery status, improvements with MeshCentral Router and a new way to configure an account for cross-domain user management. Let’s look at the details:
Built-in noVNC client. MeshCentral has its own built-in remote desktop protocol that is supported by the MeshAgent and MeshCentral, however in rare cases it’s more practical for administrators to use the Remote Frame Buffer (RFC6143) protocol to connect to a remote computer. This may be the case for macOS for example that has built-in support for this protocol. In the last few days, we added the open source noVNC web-based client to MeshCentral, making it easy for administrators to quickly click and connect to a rem…
