It’s a new year and MeshCentral2 is moving forward with plenty of new features with the goal of having the first non-Beta version in the first half of this year. MeshCentral is an open source web based remote computer management web site. In the last month, many significant new features where added and an all new User’s Guide packed with installation and configuration help. New updates are released on NPM at a regular cadence (more than once a week). For this last month, here are the big improvements:
- Email support, verification and account reset capability. This is one of these features that you wish you had implemented years ago. MeshCentral2 can now be configured with a SMTP mail server allowing it to send email messages. Then, we implemented email verification so that when you create an account, the server will send you an email to verify the account is attached to a correct email address. We also added account password reset support. Forgot your password? No longer a problem.
- Multi-Tenancy support using DNS names. MeshCentral2 can be configured to act like many different server instances at once. This last month, we build on this with domain access using DNS names. You can setup two or more DNS names to point to the same IP address of MeshCentral. Depending on what name you use to access the server, you will see a different server instance with different TLS certificate, administrators, users and managed computers. Makes it easy for a single server to handle many customers.
- Domain Controller Login. MeshCentral2 now supports user login using domain credentials. For this to work, the server must be installed on a Windows machine. Then, users never see the login page and are automatically logged in using their browser’s domain credentials. Makes MeshCentral2 perfect for intranet deployments.
All new MeshCentral2 SMTP server support for account verification and password reset.
You can point two or more DNS names to the same MeshCentral2 server and run many
separate instances of the server. Super useful for handling traffic for many customers.
All new MeshCentral2 User’s Guide. All you need to get a server installed, configured and running.
Plenty of configuration options including TLS offload, multi-tenancy, security settings and more.
