Ability to switch to a LAN connection when machines are on the same Network

Mike Bannerman 4 years ago • updated by MakaveliusX 2 weeks ago 14

When host and guest are on the same network, establish a direct connection rather than using the relay server.

User Story:
Partner would like to not use server architecture when machines are on the same LAN.

Available in Version:
architecture connection lan network

Need this for a display wall. We have 4 1080P televisions that are being remote controlled by multiple people. We can use VNC, but prefer not to. Bandwitdth at times is around 40Mbps and that is not cool back to the corporate office. We cant go with lower quality as it makes the TV look like fuzz.

2 years old. You can do it!

Would save a lot of people a lot of trouble for internal connections with a low bandwidth upload.

Curious if they would just distribute the server service to the clients you request?

Would be cool if they would leave the server service and just tunnel from client to client after the initial authentication

Considering for Future Release

Please tell me this is coming soon?  8 Months later I am still hopefull.

Hi guys,

We are working on an extension that'll make it possible to establish a direct connection over a local network to a managed machine. Take a look at https://control.product.connectwise.com/communities/1/topics/1631-basic-vnc-integration

I know you linked the newer request for a VNC extension, but I am sure others would agree we don't want VNC on our network which is why we purchased ScreenConnect.  Please update if this is going to be worked on.  Thanks

i agree vnc is an older extension but if you use use Intel vpro on your machines, you still need this extension for your network.  This would be a big help in my environment. 

I wasn't saying VNC is an older extension in the way you speak.  It may be, however I was just speaking to the date of this request.  The request is 3 years old.  Lets join in an celebrate Sean White's 3rd anniversary of this request. While snow boarding isn't involved, I still approve of this Shawn White, as he has better requests than the winter sports guy.

What is the status of this (2 years in the making)?  We still have a need for this and we don't want to use VNC as a work around.  Thanks

not even an update, just considered... pretty disappointing
