Remote Desktop On Mac


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

If Pulseway already uses MS RDP for Windows systems, there are some RDP servers for Mac (NuoRDS - not open source) and Linux (xrdp) that could work. If you're looking at other protocols, there are VNC servers for Mac, Linux, and Android - but requires jailbreak for IOS as far as I can tell. 

 

It would be cool to remote into anything and everything through one tool. For now, I'm using NoMachine to get to my Linux desktops, since it has clients for Mac, Linux, and Android.

This is seriously upsetting. Pulseway is the closest to my desired price range and the most sensible for my use case, yet I am forced to use a VM to remote to my clients with windows. Not to mention, within the next two months I will have to take on a client with a few Macs and I am not quite sure what my plan is for that yet :/. If you guys could seriously either hop on the web RD tool or the mac RD tool, I would be so happy. I really love what you guys are building but I think you might want to pause a lot of the nitty gritty features and just get it up to speed in terms of being a cross platform solution.

We from ITiseasy are curious about the development state for MacOS RDP at this moment.Did pulseway started already and yes how far are you guys with this dev.?

If not, when do you expect to start dev. this solution?

schweeeet! Thank you!

It's available in version 8.4.0 now! :)

I had to open Pulseway preferences on the machine and go into System -> Remote Control and enable it first. It's also necessary give the PulsewayAgent three different permissions within the security and integrity section of the system settings. 

 

I've tried it a few times and it seems to be working fine. The screen updates seems a bit sluggish but that might be because the machine is on wifi, and it's also in beta which may explain things. I love the fact that we are also able to transfer files back and forth. 

 

@Paul - Do you have any news to share if the enable remote control process on Mac will become easier further down the road? I'm more specifically thinking about enabling remote control on the agent using policies from the webGUI. 

 

Thanks, and well done implementing this!

No the performance is sub par. I have had issues with it fully locking up the mac during a remote session and it requiring a hard reset. the responsiveness to mouse and keyboard inputs lag badly. Not any of the 30+ macs i have deployed it on has worked great. Does not matter if the mac is hard wired or on wifi, performance is the same. I have also tried different internet connections.

      Hi all,
      I recently did a clean upgrade to Windows 10 on 2 WKSTs previously running Windows 7 with Pulseway installed.  I am now at a loss as to how to re-add these units to my Pulseway instance.
      I see they are still showing up in the “Deployment Successful” tab under “Discovery & Deployment”.
      Is there a way to re-add these units without manually installing the Pulseway app on these WKSTs?

      Hello, I have a question about the Pulseway app. When the pc is on all of the commands work great and are perfect for managing the pc. But I am attempting to turn on my pc when I am away from my home and then be able to fully control it like I was there. The issue is how the wake up command from sleep or from powered down will not work even when on my home network. How can I fix this. Also a side question, is there a way I would be able to see a live view of the screen or does it only allow screenshots of the screen. Thanks

      We reinstalled Pulseway on a re-imaged system and after the install we noticed issues. In the patch mgmt section, the status was "assign failed" in red. We rebooted the system and then the service was not starting. We checked the service, it was set to start automatically and in the event log it was generating this error: "Service cannot be started.  The handle is invalid"  We removed the system from Pulseway, uninstalled, and reinstalled. Service is starting normally, but still getting the same issue of the patch policy failing to assign. I tried moving the system to another group that did not have a patch policy at all and got the same result.

      I've implemented a script that retrieves and stores the Windows Build Version number to a custom field in the system overview.   It works fine on MOST systems.  However, there are a small number systems that are unable to run the script.  The error message displayed includes: Start-Process : This command cannot be run due to the error: The system cannot find the file specified.
      I used the "Insert Output Variable Code" in the script and verified that it includes the inserted text "Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable  .....".
      For some reason, a few systems do not seem to have the environment variable PWY_HOME set.
      It appears that these systems are using the Enable PowerShell User Impersonation option under Pulseway Manger > Settings > Runtime.
      What is the easiest way to make sure that all of my systems have the PWY_HOME variable set so that any future scripts will not fail because of a missing environment variable?
      Thanks,
      Brant

      I had installed Pulseway and then wanted to delete it but I was not able to find Pulseway in the control panel uninstall feature and so I tried manually uninstalling files but that also did not work. I tried running the .msi installer again but an error came up saying that Pulseway is already installed but it still was not showing up. Please help me with this.
