Remote Desktop On Mac

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Is it possible to do RD sessions on Mac? What I mean is from my windows system.

I don't see an RD tab on the mac client.

 

Thanks in Advance....

Hi there,

Welcome to the Pulseway community! Unfortunately I can only provide ETAs for the entries on the Roadmap over here:

Hi,

I was in the same position as you, but I also needed to connect to Android and iOS devices to assist some of my clients with their Mobile devices.  I looked at ScreenConnect, Teamviewer and a couple others.  I eventually settled with Splashtop SOS in addition to the Pulseway RDP.  It is very cost effective and works very well.  If you are looking at a cheaper alternative (free), Chrome Remote Desktop might be your answer.  It works for Mac as well, but not for mobile device access, not yet anyway.  Hope this helps.

Since it's not even on the Roadmap I guess that answers my question. I will have to find a third party solution for desktop support of my Mac users.

I am in the same spot! And with applications going web based more often, company’s slowly starting to give users freedom, i think it would be wise to not neglect the Apple users :-) i understand that the Windows base is bigger then the Apple base, but still.. Pulseway isnt the only RMM provider to do this, so better get ahead of the competition ;-)

Greetings Chris,

Any update on the status of RD for Mac? I've literally checked Pulseway's site every day since I came across your forum post (since early April). We really like Pulseway, but have a 90% Mac environment.

 

thanks!

Hi Levi,

Unfortunately we had to drop the integration we were building with a 3rd party software due to last minute disagreements so we are going to be improving our own RD in the following months.

This is such a shame, along with not being able to remotely control from the Mobile App, Pulseway is billed as Mobile-First but yet mobile comes last!

Please someone go back to your roots and deploy features and management that are designed with Mobile First and web second in your development cycle and give us the tools we need to do our job or we will need to start looking at other solutions which will be a shame!

This is going to factor into my decision to stay or go with another company. When we started we knew there was no Mac RD, but the eta was a few months and it was coming. I understand delays. From an outsiders point of view it looks like controlled chaos with you guys jumping all over the place on whats coming and when. The current RD application on the PC is quite poor when it comes to features and speed.

I'm excited to let you know that we've hired two new developers that are working on the Remote Desktop application and we estimate that an update that resolves some bugs and improves the speed and connection reliability is due to be out next week.

      Hey all.
      I've enabled 2FA on my Pulseway account but I'm having an issue with it constantly prompting for 2FA every time I try to use Remote Control on a system I manage from the Pulseway Dashboard application. I have the setting enabled in the WebApp to refuce the frequency of the prompts but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference. I seem to be getting prompted every time. I'd honestly rather get prompted once when I launch the Dashboard application then every single time I want to remote to a system.
      Is there a way to stop these constant 2FA prompts without disabling it entirely? Thanks!

      Remote Control really needs the ability to both trigger a reboot and to automatically reconnect when the system you're connected to completes the restart. Having it immediately disconnect when a reboot is triggered (usually if it's running as a service, it should be able to hold the session open for things like the first phase of installing Windows updates) and having to manually try over and over again to see if the machine has completed its reboot is really frustrating when you're trying to solve an issue remotely that requires a lot of reboots or even when you're just trying to do a number of updates to a system.

      I'm currently running Pulseway OnPrem (7.0.0 build 120 release 283), and I'm using Pulseway Remote Control (6.6.3). 
       
      The issue I have experienced is that the remote control notification doesn't always show up on the client when I attempt to remote control a session. We have 150+ computers in our environment and sometimes it works fine, and sometimes it doesn't, and the different behavior can even occur on the same machine from time to time.
      Pulseway is configured to automatically allow the remote session if no one accept (or deny) the request within a minute, and I have noticed that even if the notification doesn't show up, the connection will still be established when the timer runs out. 
       
      To make things clearer, here are two different scenarios. (Scenario 2 is the incorrect behavior)
      Scenario 1:
      Select computer -> Select active session -> Client notification "do you allow x to remote control" -> User press Allow -> Remote session established 
      Scenario 2:
      Select computer -> Select active session -> Client notification not shown -> 1 minute timeout -> Remote session established 
       
      Are you guys aware of this? Has anyone else experienced the same behavior?
