Addigy's first-class interface for remotely controlling your macOS devices is now even better!
LiveDesktop brought the power of Apple's native Remote Management service to the cloud. The new remote control integration enabled Remote Management settings on a target macOS device and securely tunneled each session to a unique address accessible only to you.
With the latest update to LiveDesktop, we've greatly enhanced security, reliability and speed. With the introduction of automatic IP relays, connecting to devices is much faster and smoother. In this iteration, we have relays in Australia, Germany and US East expanding our infrastructure around the world.
Enrolling in the Open Beta
To test out the latest updates of LiveDesktop, follow the below steps:
- Log in to your Addigy portal.
- Navigate to Account > Settings.
- Toggle the LiveDesktop v2 beta feature in the Enable Beta Features section.
Using LiveDesktop's Newest Features
To use the latest LiveDesktop after enrolling in the Open beta, follow these steps:
- Head to the Device's page.
- Expand a device on the page.
- Click the LiveDesktop v2 link to establish a connection.
After click the link, you'll get a modal that will let you know if Remote Management is turned on for the device, the best relay to use for your location, and a link to download and install the Addigy Admin Tunnel app. Clicking Start Session will open the Addigy Admin Tunnel app and start your remote control session using macOS-native Screen Sharing tools. (Note: The Addigy Admin Tunnel app is required for the latest version of LiveDesktop. It can be downloaded and installed when you go to start a remote control session. Currently, it's supported in macOS only. If you have interest in the Admin Tunnel app being supported in Windows, please let our Support team know!)
