Remotix for Mac gets a huge new update

Today we're rolling out a new version of Remotix for Mac. The version 4.0 includes a handful of new features listed below in order of excitement:

* Multiple Computer Observer

Multiple computer observer allows you to monitor the displays of multiple remote machines at the same time in multiple pages and slideshow modes. The feature is extremely useful in Mac classrooms.

* Seamless Auto Reconnect

If network connection is lost or Wi-Fi goes away Remotix tries to reconnect to the machine. Auto-reconnect works for both RDP and VNC connections.

* RD Gateway

This is the most anticipated RDP feature for business users. It's finally coming to Remotix. It took us a lot of time to do it, but hopefully we did it right and tested enough configurations so you won't have problems with it. Just in case you do - drop us a line and we'll try to find out the solution.

* RDP Live Resolution & Scale Change

Remotix automatically changes RDP resolution after resizing or going full screen. You can also change the scale of the elements on the fly, without leaving the viewer. Note, resolution and scale change only works on non-server Windows editions, starting from 8.1.

* Load-balancing Configurations

Previously Remotix didn't support RDP redirection, required for large RD farms. Now, it is fully functional.

* Better RDP Network Speed Adaptivity

RDP engine now performs periodic network speed checks while you're connected in order to automatically tune RDP features for the best performance.

* Superzoom

Zoom remote screen to the window size or full screen even if the remote resolution is smaller than that of your monitor.

* Connection Information Panel

We've added HUD display of current connection parameters, including current rate, total bytes used and total time connected.

* VeNCrypt TLS Authentication

Remotix is currently the only client (as far as we know) supporting TLS VeNCrypt authentication used by ProxMox and TurboVNC.

* Bugfixes

1) addressed the long-standing issue with RealVNC "Invalid protocol message"

2) you can rename "Unsorted" category (!)

3) there are a lot of small fixes here and there, and of course, new bugs!

Remotix VNC & RDP 4.0 for Mac is only $39.99 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) for a personal license, and is available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Business category, as well as through the Nulana website.
