Overall Satisfaction with 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.
  • 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.

Do you think mRemoteNG delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with mRemoteNG's feature set?

Yes

Did mRemoteNG live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of mRemoteNG go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy mRemoteNG again?

Yes

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.
