Virtual Screen driver similar to that used by MSTSC to eliminate screen resolution limits

Paul 4 years ago updated by Mark Hodges 2 weeks ago 22

Older graphics cards restrict screen resolution. This is not a problem with the Microsoft Terminal Services client which uses a virtual driver and can display much higher resolutions.

The Ability to set the screen resolution when connecting to a device

Colin Aggett 3 years ago updated by Kyle Hamburger 1 week ago 45

When you connect to a server the screen resolution can be quite small and there is no way to change the default window size, having the ability to change or set a default connection resolution size or control it in the session would be very helpful, it is very frustrating when you are viewing a sever at 800x600 when you have 1920 x 1080 monitor.

uninstall password

Dustin Evans 4 years ago updated by Alex Heylin 2 months ago 17

We would like to have the option to add a password to protect the screen connect client from being uninstalled by users with local admin privileges. I have found that when the client is installed from labtech, users don't recognize it and tend to remove it. This causes problems with the labtech SC plugin.

Change the name back to ScreenConnect!!!

MrEastwood 3 years ago updated by shawnkhall 1 year ago 25

Look at this thread on the forums, no one likes the new name "Control". The only way to get it changed away from this horrible name is to upvote this feature request. Either change it back to ScreenConnect, or call it something else like Connect, just not a name that implies a negative connotation. Please. This was really a bad idea to change the name.

Add the ability to set an alternate relay address

Michael Bannerman 4 years ago updated by Sean Keown 2 months ago 26

Our situation :
We have 3 offices in Canada (HQ, A, B)
HQ-A have MPLS link between them,
HQ-B use VPN over internet.
All location have independent internet access.

We use access session on all system in all location, but the relay is located in the HQ.

Curent setup.
1 DNS name to the server that resolve to an external IP when out of the local infrastructure and an internal IP when inside the infrastructure.
- This way system on our internal network dont use the public internet access, it more secure, reduce the global bandwitch and load on our front end firewall.
The issue, if the inter-site link go down, the access session will not be able to connect, as the DNS will still resolve to the internal IP, resulting in disconnection.

Our need, be able to setup 2 URL for the a access session, as such when the 1st is irresponsible the client can try connecting to the second one, with a retest every X to go back to primary.
With this we could setup our client with a internal URL as primary and an external URL as secondary and still reach our system if the VPN or MPLS go down, but not the internet.
