Last week we launched the new user interface for MeshCentral.com and started getting more people trying it out and providing feedback. Over the last few days, we knocked out a bunch of show stopper bugs and I am happy to report that some are having success using the web site to remotely manage their computers. Still a lot of work to be done, but at least people can get setup.
First, we released a new version of "MeshCentral Connector" (screen below). This is the application that is used to general secure "administrative meshes" on the web site. We need the application since we need to perform some cryptographic operations that the web site can't know about, all in the name of security. The new Connector application had a few bug fixes but also uses .NET 2.0 instead of .NET 3.5. This change was made after we noticed that for many, the newer version of .NET was not installed on their machines and this extra stop is time consuming and just annoying.
We also fixed a bug in the Mesh Agent self-installer and improved the web site to better handle situations where the user is not permitted to perform certain operations. All in all, the site is starting to take shape. We still have a bunch of bugs to fix, but the list is getting shorter. If you are interested in remotely taking control of computers from the web, you may want to give it a try.
