Hi folks! Today I wanted to talk about a great product called mRemote. Have you ever had tons of saved RDP, VNC and Putty sessions, and they just get out of control? Well I know I do! When you work on as many different networks as I do on a daily basis, you need some way to organize it all. That’s where mRemote comes in!

mRemote is a program that saves a copy of the connection settings for RDP, Putty, VNC, HTTP, HTTPS, Citrix and many other connection types. You can even configure it to launch external apps. For example I have saved connections to various VMware servers. Once it’s all saved you can export the connections as .xml files and then import them into another mRemote installation on another computer. This makes it easy to share commonly used remote sessions with your co-workers.

mRemote also has the ability to import existing sessions such as importing existing RDP connections but it breaks when you try and import RDP sessions that use non-standard ports. Those you have to edit manually. It also has something called smartsizing which auto-sizes the remote session to your screen within the mRemote window so you don’t always have to specify full screen. All in all a great product! IT gurus of the world rejoice!

You can download it from here.
