MeshCentral - Mobile Remote Desktop, Maintenance Mode, International Keyboards

Mobile devices are a dominant way people access information and when something goes wrong, it’s often the first device you have available. Today, MeshCentral has a significant new improvement to the mobile web site that allows full control over a remote desktop from a mobile device. This is going to be incredibly practical for administrators and technicians that are on the go. In addition to this, we have a new server maintenance mode and improved support for international keyboards. In detail: Remote Desktop Control from Mobile Device . This is the big news.

MeshCentral - Multi-Upload, Live CPU, File Search, Geo Keyboards

This week we got a pile more features added to MeshCentral. Four of them standout and so, we will talk about them here. We have a new system to upload one or more files to many remote devices at once, a new live graphic of the CPU and memory usage of remote systems, a new remote file search feature and finally support of international keyboard layouts on Windows. Lots of improvements this week. In detail: Upload files to multiple devices at once . If you want to upload a batch of files to many remote systems all at once, generally you upload to each device one at a time. With the latest MeshCentral administrators can now check many devices, hit the “Group Action” button, select one or more files and a destination path. MeshCentral will then receive the files and start uploading them to each device in a single step. It’s faster and a more efficient this way to perform this operation as the file is sent to the server only once. Live CPU and memory graph . This has been requested by users

MeshCentral - Desktop Sharing and MeshCentral Router Improvements

This week we have many more new features published into MeshCentral, more than we can list here but there are a select few of special interest. Probably the most interesting feature this week are improvements to guest remote desktop sharing where you can share a device with a guest for a limited time using only a URL. In addition to this, the widely used MeshCentral Router tool got an upgrade and is now completely replacing the ClickOnce router that was only supported in Internet Explorer. In detail:   Guest Remote Desktop Link Revocation . As users of MeshCentral know, you can create a time limited link that you can give to someone else to take control of a computer on MeshCentral with no account required. Now, we improved this feature by allowing users to revoke the sharing link at any time. In addition, when a link is revoked, all guest users that are currently using the link will be immediately disconnected. This is a security improvement, but also allows for creating sharing links
