Whether you’re using another computer on the same local network, you’re halfway around the world connecting to your Mac desktop from a phone or a tablet, or running remote support business as usual, the newly upgraded ISL Online remote access solution will connect much faster, enhance the overall performance, enable remote reboot and reconnect and make a file transfer an easy job.
Easy remote access in just 6 seconds
As an easy-to-use alternative to Mac’s built-in Screen Sharing, ISL Online lets you securely access unattended remote Mac, Windows and Linux computers from desktop computers (Mac, Windows, Linux) and mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows Phone). As a result of a redesigned connection mode, the latest release even lets you connect to a remote computer running Mac OX in amazing 6 seconds.
How to connect to your Mac?
ISL Online has made remote access really easy. Considering you have already installed a small application called ISL AlwaysOn on your remote computers and set their access passwords (see video tutorial), you can securely access these computers over the Internet from any other desktop computer or mobile device. First, you log into your ISL Online account, open the Remote Access tab, and find your Mac in the My computers list. Then click on ‘Connect’, enter its access password, and your Mac’s screen should show up in just a few seconds.
This video will show you how to connect to your Mac in mere 6 seconds.
Use your Mac remotely as if sitting behind it
The latest version of the ISL Online remote access software improves the user experience to the point you cannot really tell whether you are using your Mac remotely or sitting right there. The user interface is now much smaller and as such allows a cleaner remote view. If your Mac is running OS X 10.8 or a later one, you will even enjoy much faster screen sharing. And when connecting to your Mac from a Windows computer, the local and the remote keyboard match now more effectively with an improved support for all shortcuts along with an improved interpretation of transferred characters.
Transfer files through a convenient drag & drop window
The new convenient drag & drop file transfer window considerably simplifies a file transfer between a remote and host computer. Now you just need to find the file or folder you wish to transfer, click on it, drag it to the special window in the bottom right-hand corner and drop it there. That’s it! The file should be transferred to your local computer. However, when you need a full view of the remote screen, feel free to minimise the drag & drop window and then reopen it when needed.
Restart and resume
The well-known feature on Windows is now finally available on Macs. While working on a remote Mac, you can feel free to restart the computer since it will automatically resume the same remote access session without breaking the connection.
A complete list of improvements, fixes and full release information is available in the release documentation.
