Customer Reviews

Please fix -9800 socket error...will update post when you do

The socket error -9800, when logging out of a remote gateway/load balancing server system is confusing to end users, even though there seems to be no other issue than the error popping up that users are forced to hit OK to.

The new Remote Desktop server and gateway setup process could be more streamlined...again, for end users. Perhaps even a configuration that could be emailed or sent to end-users some way so they do not have to set it up themselves, but rather import a configuration (obviously without credentials).

No problem for I.T. Specialists.

Fantastic to use otherwise. High quality Remote Desktop experience. The end users at various clients were impressed with the remote experience on an iPad for business use.

Best Remote Admin App available!!

It is simply the best remote admin app out there for Windows.
It just works 100%. It makes my life as an IT Manager so much easier. I love how smooth the mouse cursor moves, all the functionalities are there, and all the keys of the keyboard.
I can do everything on my desktop right from my iphone without going to my office.
This is a beautiful app, excellent programming guys, I would give it 10 * if I could!

Best remote app

I have been using remote apps, either VPN or Remote Desktop. I have to say that this is the easiest and most friendly for a iOS UI. It works flawlessly and in full screen instead of having to scroll around the screen. I love it and will use it continually when I have to remote into work.
