Hi David,

I seem to be having a problem using the embedded SSH or SSH Shell. We currently use Putty to connect to all of our network equipment through SSH. If I try to use the embedded SSH the connection opens flash's on the screen and then closes. This happens to fast to even read any message on the screen. If I try this with SSH Shell then I get a pop up message "Unable to connect. Verify your settings." Putty is working but I was just trying to eliminate an external app and see if your embedded options would work.

Feature requests:

Is it possible to add options to the password generator? We have a default password policy and use another password generator and have a criteria of 3 upper case, 2 lower case, and 2 number. We use Remote Desktop Manager for 95% of all our management tools and this would avoid have an external password generator if we could specify the criteria.

Would it be possible to edit some of the session details while in the dashboard instead of opening the connection?

You have the best management tool out there. Keep up the good work.

Thanks,
Larry

Hi Larry,
We will look at your problem with SSH. This is the first beta and it's possible that we have some adjustment to do. We have tested it with an OpenSSH on a Windows Server machine. Could you verify the application log: Help->View Application Log

I have added your two other request on our todo list. I don't have any timeframe but as usual we continue to improve the application.

Hi,

i've got this problem with new RDM 6.9.0.0: if i use filter/search for sessions then current beta expand all and then filter only those sessions that match ... but all empty groups remain displayed. previous behaviour was that only groups with displayed sessions was displayed

Petr Valouch

Help wanted: Telepath.
You know where to apply.

Clock7 yrs

Hi,
I know why and I will fix it. Sorry about that

It's now fixed and this will be in the next beta release.

Hi
Tnx for your application
could you add winbox for mikrotik?

Clock7 yrs

Hi
Since you have added the embedded telnet in the new 6.9.0.0 version I noticed that you no longer have the option to have a time stamped log file. Not sure if this is in your plan for the new version but having this feature can be helpful where you might need to maintain a session log

Clock7 yrs

Hi,
We have done it on purpose. Does the log is missing only with the embedded Telnet? I will fix this for sure.

I can't give you all the details but we want to expand our computer management and add more centralized information. We also want to explore the Mobile solution and maybe MACOS X. This is not official yet.

Hi,

It seems that if a folder does not have an entry under it you cannot delete it or do anything to it..., bug? / feature?

Clock7 yrs

Hi,
Sorry about the delete bug. The workaround is to add a blank session and delete the group. It's now fixed internally and this will be in the next beta release. I hope to release it tomorrow.

Hi,

Another thing I noticed, when I search for a keyword the list used to filtered all the folders and show me only the folders with data related to my search.
Now, all the folders are showing and only the entries are filtered...

Clock7 yrs

This is also fixed already

Hi David,

happy new year. I have two questions about the latest RDM 6.9.1.0 build.

1) there is under c:\Remote Desktop Manager\de\ the new RemoteDesktopManager.resources.dll. Although i set in the RDM File -> Option -> German, restart RDM , but RDM still appears in english.
(It's an english WIN XP SP3). What should this RemoteDesktopManager.resources.dll in german display? where can i see that it works?

2) In the RDM File -> Option -> Advanced tab there is a path link [C:\Dev\devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager\Program\bin\Release Source:InstallDir]
this path doesn't exists on my system, and i can't change it as well.
So when i click this link, i get always an Unexpected error:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unexpected error, contact us at remotedesktopmanager.com

OS: Windows XP Service Pack 3 32-bit

Win32Exception - The system cannot find the file specified

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When i create the directory structure, and click the link a new Windows folder window opens and shows the content of the C:\Dev\devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager\Program\bin\Release
directory.

What's the function behind this link?
Why is this link not changeable?

many thanks and rgs

Hi Bob,
The German translation is not integrated yet. The dll contains the English translation but it's coming soon. I have a meeting today with native German translator. I hope to add it soon. The hardest part is already done. We have extracted all the resources from the application and it can now be translated.

I verified for the option and it's a bug. Because of the translation, it's hard coded to MY path. I'm fixing it right now.

Hi David
Just installed the new beta 6.9.1.0. Since this installation I'm unable to start FileZilla connections. It simply happens nothing. The path for the filezilla exe is set correctly and the connections worked before the update.
Btw: Happy new year smile

Yes, correct. But strangewise, meanwhile it's working. I had to change application type of one connection to "Window Explorer" and then back to "FileZilla". Now they are all working again.
Sorry for the wrong info...

Clock7 yrs

I will keep an eye on it to see if it could be related to something else. Thank you

Sorry about this crash. I have found the problem and it's now fixed. I will release a new build tonight. Those field are only used by Remote Desktop Manager Server but the database is compatible with the SQL Server data source.
