What's New in SmartCode VNC Manager v6

Configuratio Profiles (SQL, Azure, Dropbox, AmazonS3, FTP, XML
Configuration profiles

V6 introduces Settings Configuration Profiles which contain all the settings and data used by the application.

SmartCode VNC Manager supports the following Configuration Profiles: Local XML file, Dropbox, Amazon S3, FTP, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or newer and Microsoft SQL Azure.

SQL Server and SQL Azure configuration profiles
Support for SQL Server and SQL Azure

Many of our customers have been asking for database storage support. We are pleased to announce that v6.5 includes support for Microsoft SQL Server and SQL Azure storage.

Database-based Configuration Profiles should be used in multi-user environments, where different users need to access centralized settings storage.

WMI inventory
WMI Monitoring and Inventory

One of the killer features in the v6 is the ability to show result of a WMI query as part of the registered computers list. Want to know what BIOS or Windows versions are installed on your company computers? You’ve got it! You just need to specify a WMI class, property name and optional filtering condition and that’s it.

Connection history log
Secure VNC Viewer

With our VNC viewer you won’t have to worry about your VNC connections being compromised. You can choose to encrypt VNC sessions with SecureVNC / MSRC4 DSM plug-in. On top of that, our VNC viewer is the only VNC client that offers built-in support for SSH port-forwarding.

Connection history log
Linked Active Directories

Forget about spending time creating Registered Computer records! With just a few clicks, you can register an Active Directory domain and start managing and monitoring your computers.

SmartCode VNC Manager keeps each Active Directory computer settings in a special database. Even when you move a computer to another organizational unit, its connection settings will not be lost.

Connection history log
Connection History Log

All computer connections established under via the VNC Manager are logged in a database or a XML file, depending on the type of the Configuration Profile being used.

The Connection History Log feature enables filtering according to a specific time range, searching for specific entries (Connection name or Server name) as well immediately switching to the corresponding Registered Computer object.

Added support for Radmin, Dameware, HP Remote graphics
Support for new remote desktop clients

In v6.8, we have added support for Team Viewer, DameWare Mini Remote, HP Remote Graphics clients, LogMeIn and Windows Remote Assistance clients.

SmartCode VNC Manager can establish remote connections using the following clients: VNC, RDP, Team Viewer, DameWare Mini Remote, HP Remote Graphics, RAdmin, Citrix ICA, SSH, Telnet, Microsoft Hyper-V, Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 and Web browser. Even more clients can be added as External Tools.

Ability to launch connections from the command line
Launching connection via command line

It's now possible to launch a connection or open a management tool from the command-line or via a desktop shortcut. For example, the command-line below establishes a VNC connection to the server at 10.10.0.1.

VNCManager.exe /connect:10.10.0.1 /protocol:0
Improved credentials templates
Improved logon credentials templates

The VNC Manager includes a very useful feature called Logon Credentials Templates. Credentials include settings such as the user name, the password and the domain.

A new feature in the new version is the ability to link a Logon Credentials template to a Registered Computer entry. This way changes to a Logon Credentials Template will be automatically picked-up by Registered Computers that use the template.

Improved credentials templates
VNC viewer with improved screen scaling

When using the built-in VNC viewer with a screen stretch mode enabled, you can switch between GDI and GDI+ scaling modes. The GDI+ mode delivers much nice looking results.

VNC viewer updated with IPv6 support
VNC viewer with IPv6 support

We have updated SmartCode VNC Manager's built-in VNC viewer to support IPv6 addresses. It also includes improved support for the latest versions of UltraVNC and TightVNC servers.
