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.

Hi @DaveG,

This is not a small project, therefore I can not tell you an exact deadline for it.  Currently, I can say that we are working on it.

      I have one customer workstation (actually a laptop) that I cannot assign a patch policy.  All of the other systems in this customer group are fine.  When I try to assign it via my mobile, I get "change OS patch policy command failed".  Nor can I assign it via the Pulseway Web app - it shows "no actions available" for that one system.
      I tried remotely restarting the laptop, and I tried repairing the local agent installation, but no joy.
      Any suggestions?
      Thanks!

      Looking for a script that I can run to drop from XXX domain, set to "WORKGROUP" and reboot.    I used to have this in a command line form that I can't find.

      Hello,
      I've been trying to turn on my computer when I'm away from the house using both mobile data and another WiFi connection. When I'm on the same network the wake up command works but if I'm using mobile data I'll get the message "Wake up command failed" and when I'm on another network it says "wake up command sent" but nothing happens. I have the necessary port forwarded (UDP 9) and through the Pulseway android app port monitor I can see it works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

      I changed phones recently and the new app says:
      'This device is pending approval. Login to the WebApp and approve it from the account devices page.'
      If I got to https://my.pulseway.com/main/account/devices there is no device to approve.
      Am I doing something wrong?

      Here is a Batch script to empty the SoftwareDistribution Folder.  It stops any installer processes in the background, temporarily disables the Windows Update Service, deletes everything in the Software Distribution folder then sets the Windows update service back to automatic and starts the service.
      @echo off
      CD C:\
      taskkill /F /im setup.exe
      taskkill /F /im ose00000.exe
      taskkill /F /im msiexec.exe
      sc config wuauserv start= disabled
      net stop wuauserv
      PowerShell.exe Remove-Item C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\* -Force -Recurse
      sc config wuauserv start= demand
      net start wuauserv
