Manage All Your Remote Connections From One Place [Free Application]
By on May 9th, 2008

As you may already know I am big fan of putty due to its ability to allow me to connect to Unix based machines and work with them right from the comfort of my desktop, if I dig further I am also a big fan of Cygwin a Unix emulator for Windows which users to work on a Unix like environment right within Windows.

Talking about remote connections to external machines putty and Windows Remote Desktop are the two softwares I use almost 80% of my day at work as a Software Engineer but having to connect to multiple machines at the same time means more windows to manage and more mess of my taskbar even though I use two monitors to work.

That was only until I came across Remote Manager a excellent software for people who spend more time on remote computers than on their own.

Remote Manager is a software solution that will allow you to manage all your remote control connections in a single place.
Currently it supports the RDP, VNC, SSH2 and Telnet protocols. The main intention is to have a central place to store all your connections and access them in the same window.

  • Multi-Tab interface to minimize window clutter.

  • Support for importing connections from Active Directory:
  • Allows creating nested containers (folders) to categorize  connections.
  • “Quick Connect” feature to quickly open a connection  without creating an entry.
  • “Quick Search” feature to quickly find a connection while  typing.
  • Assign icons to connection to easily identify purpose.

Summarizing

The key features I liked in the software was the ability for it to allow me to manage my connections using tabs which I am used to now along with allowing me to easily organize all my connections and save them for later usage. This particularly works for me since I have to access almost 60 Unix servers at work and at times need to be logged in to 10-20 at a time to monitor logs and outputs.

This definitely is a great software and I advice that if you even connect to two different remote PCs at a time, give this a try and you would be happy. It’s only been a couple of hours since I started using this and am already hooked on to it.
