MeshCentral is an open source web based remote computer management web site. This week is spring break in Oregon and we are going to celebrate with a smaller and more fun MeshCentral2 update. We just released support for viewing multiple computers desktop at the same time. This is very useful for digital signage usages where you want to monitor the screens of many computers in real time. In MeshCentral2 v0.1.5-p, you can now select “Desktops” in the view drop-down on the top right of the devices view. You will see all your currently connected computers and you can click on the screens to toggle connection to that device.
On the multi-desktop screen, you click “Connect all” or “Disconnect all” to connect/disconnect all screens at once. Check “AutoConnect” to connect to all desktops and automatically connect to any new computer that comes online. Like all of the other screens on MeshCentral2, the multi-desktop screen is fully real time, with computer names, icons and status being updated on the web page without user interaction.
If you are looking at managing many unattended computers at once, this new feature will help a lot. As always, if you have a MeshCentral2 server, perform an update of the server, try it and feel free to send me feedback.
