My development team uses this to manage various remote servers, mostly RDP, some VNC, and a few console\terminal devices. Makes organizing and accessing servers very easy, along with being able to share between the team any new infrastructure setups very quickly. Were mostly a Microsoft house with only a handful of non-windows appliances but this app helps bring all the remote management together in one convenient place.
  • Easy to organize and group servers.
  • Many different protocols for remote access.
  • The ability to make use of external applications for non-directly supported protocols.
  • Servers can inherit settings from nodes above so you can set up properties once making adding new servers/devices very quick.
  • Easy to export and share config with new team members (be mindful of what you do with passwords though).
  • Sadly not seeing much in the way of active development these days.
  • Have had a few issues where the config file has been messed up (so learnging to back that up was key).
  • Interface is functional but not pretty and can be a bit clunky at times.
Great for gathering multiple remote server and device access protocols into a single application where they can be organized grouped and easily searched for. You can use the tree hierarchy to group servers\devices or search quickly to find what you want. It also allows you to add external applications as an object to connect to so web page-based iDRAc, for example, can be managed in the same place as the native desktop access of the same server—very convenient. Sadly, the main downside to this app is its lack of active development which is a shame as it is the most convenient of multi-protocol remote server access tools I have come across.

  • Very easy to hand over connections to new starters.
  • Having multiple remote protocols in one place is a massive time saver.
Every now and then I do look to see if there is any other software that can bring together multiple remote access protocols in a single interface that can contain multiple connections to remote devices with image scaling to mage use of a windowed interface and have yet to find an alternative that does all that but doesn't cost a huge amount. Don't get me wrong I would happily pay for an alternative that could provide an overall better, more convenient experience, but I have yet to find one that has made me think it's worth jumping ship from mRemoteNG.

Currently used by the IT department to assist with managing multiple servers.

mRemoteNG is incredibly useful in allowing us to access several servers at once, using tabbed viewing, instead of having to have multiple MSTSC windows open that can often get confusing. Allowing the configuration of user credentials also speeds up the process of accessing servers, as its just a quick click!
  • Tabbed Views. Each server remote desktop is viewed in its own separate tab, similar to a web browser. This makes it much quicker and easier to switch between them than using separate windows.
  • Storing credentials. You can configure it with log on credentials for each system, saving time on accessing as you don't need to enter a password each time.
  • Multiple connection types. I use the traditional RDP the most, but mRemoteNG allows many different connection types, similar to Putty.
  • The user interface for configuration is a little basic, and not obvious for a new user to set up connections. It could be a bit clearer how to do that.
  • It does not seem to automatically update itself to new versions - though older ones work fine, you can miss out on some new functions if you don't check for updates manually.
Well suited to environments where IT staff need to access multiple servers/systems at the same time, cutting down on time wasted opening multiple windows.

Not so useful for users that only need to access one system remotely, as most of its functions are largely unused in that case.

  • Unquantifiable, really. It has definitely saved me time, and while each day it might not be much, over the course of a year I'm sure it has made an impact to my productivity level overall.
mRemoteNG is far more useful than LogMeIn when on the same network, or VPN as the servers, as it allows multiple server screens open in multiple tabs. LogMeIn is much more useful when working out of the office for its ability to connect anywhere, but each system accessed is in a separate window making navigation a little tricky. Sometimes I use them in tandem however, LogMeIn to access a machine in my network, then mRemoteNG to access multiple machines from there!
Never actually needed to use support so have no idea - honestly it's simple enough to use I'd be surprised if anyone really needs support with it.
