Overall Satisfaction with mRemoteNG

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.
  • 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.

Do you think mRemoteNG delivers good value for the price?

Did implementation of mRemoteNG go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy mRemoteNG again?

Yes

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.
