This week brings another big feature to Meshcentral. I am very happy to announce that the latest version of the Mesh Agent v184 now has local built-in web based management! You now can use both Meshcentral.com to manage all your devices over the cloud and access the local HTTPS web page on port 16990 of any meshed device on the local network. The local management site offers Mesh Agent status along with WebRTC based Remote Desktop and Remote Terminal. So, once setup you can take control of a remote device on the same network even without Internet connectivity.
This feature is very useful for checking on the mesh agent status, but even more useful in cases where you need to remotely manage embedded, headless or IoT devices like the Intel® Galileo. You can just hit the local web site of the device, login and access the remote management features. More than ever Mesh offers increasing flexibility in how devices are managed. The local management site has many settings, so administrators can configure if and how it works and what credentials are accepted. It’s all configured by meshcentral.com. For now, each device’s local administration page much be set independently.
Take a look at our Youtube video demonstration. The new agents v184 started rolling out a few minutes ago and the mesh server updates will be rolled out over the next few days.
Questions and feedback appreciated,
Along with Meshcentral, the latest mesh agent servers a full remote management web site.
You can now manage your devices using the cloud site and the local site hosted by the device itself.
The new local web site offers general information, login, remote desktop and remote terminal.
The site operations and credentials can be setup by the administrator using meshcentral.com.
Use Meshcentral to setup how the local web site works and what credentials should be accepted.
The new feature is going to be deployed across all Mesh supported platforms.
