What's New in Version 1.52

Added defaults setting localsshlaunchpath for overwriting the ssh path.

Fixed a potential problem with network discovery over firewire ip connections.

Pretty lame that the “home” version only allows 7 hosts. That’s really absurd. FYI the original version allowed unlimited. Then aburtly the developer changed it to limit how many hosts you could have . That was really unfair. Either way it hasn’t been updated in years and there are now much better Free options avaiable that don’t have these ridiculous Artifical limitations so I guess it doesn’t matter.

It Used to Work

It used to be able to connect to older versions of Linux. It looks like the VNC protocol may have changed with Gnome 3, and it can no longer connect to my Linux Mint box. It might have to do with OS X support in screen sharing. I imagine it only works to connect to other OS X machines at this point. I had to switch to RealVNC Viewer, which is free.

Needs an update

I had a nice list of clients populated and one day when I launched it half of them had disappeared. Also, it would be really nice to be able to create groups of computers.
