mRemote – one stop shop for server mgmt

Posted on Updated on

If you haven’t used mRemote, I strongly recommend you do.  This is a great application that is a “one stop shop” remote server and device management tool.  You can manage anything and everything which uses these protocols  (RDP, VNC, ICA, SSH, Telnet, RAW, Rlogin and HTTP/S).  So basically any UNIX, Linux, Windows server, any network switch or device that you are remotely administering – all through one application.  The connections can be easily duplicated, and sorted as well as folders for organization.

All in all, a great tool for managing a mixed environment of OS and devices!

Here’s a link to the product overview:
