    Great that you released a Mac version of the app. The current version does not support unattended access. Do you know when that feature is scheduled to appear?
    Thanks,

    Hello, do you mean incoming connections or outgoing?

    Hi @Sergey N, I’m trying to access a remote Mac so I’m looking for unattended access for incoming connections. For now I’m using TeamViewer but would love to switch over to RA with its much friendlier licensing model.
    Thanks,
    Damir

    Hi, I was very excited when I received your email about the new Mac version of MSP360 remote control, but didn't last long. As happened for other versions of your backup software, Mac users are treated differently and must cope with mocked versions respect windows. I have installed the Build: 1.0.95 both on my 2 macs, to test it, the installation is fine, and the application starts.
    I see a ready to connect green led which is good, and a nice orange button with the CONNECT sign.
    Enter Computer ID here...
    Where is the ID? I can't spot any ID in any menu voice, about, or setting menu, (consider this app goes in Client's hands).
    I can't see the "unattended access" button either, (maybe will come later in the next updates).
    I went to help.mps360 then to see some docs before writing here, and under Remote Assistant for macOS there is only "Introduction" that speaks about similarities with Windows app and shows a mobile interface for iOS.
    Sorry about my frustration, I was really looking forward to seeing this nice app coming to Mac.
    Thanks, Regards
    Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to everyone

    Hi,

    How do we generate a private/public keypair?

    I don't see a "Regenerate Keypair" button like what's described in the following link, which I suppose is for the Windows client:

    https://www.cloudberrylab.com/resources/blog/safe-remote-desktop-with-remote-assistant/

    And the box where the public key goes comes up with nothing in it. Here's a screenshot of what I see in the Mac client:

    With all due respect - to advertise the macOS version on MacUpdate.com as "a freeware tool that enables quick and secure connections to remote systems, making it easy for MSPs to provide support over the internet" seems to be a rather bad joke at this time.

    This application can not be used to establish any connection to another computer to "provide support" (control that computer). Whether it can be used to GET support (from a Windows machine only) I don't know, but this is anyway not how it is being presented.

    How about you try again in half a year (or whenever this thing works)? In the meantime I suggest to change the description so that it is clear what this is about right now.

    Hello ,
    I do have an old Mac which I cannot update at OS X 10.12
    Are you planning to create a version also for previous MacOS operating systems?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    That is correct, the key can be generated only on Windows hosts yet, current version only supports remote control of the Windows hosts. We are implementing the features step-by-step to be sure that those features are polished and working correctly. Cross-platform connections are really complicated and we are playing it safe. The ability to control macOS operated machines is going to be released a bit later this year. Thank you and let us know if you have any other questions.



    I think there is a bit of misunderstanding, the software can perfectly control the remote Windows operated hosts. The reason why we release the feature set step-by-step I have described in the answer above.



    There are no plans currently to support the older versions of macOS due to key changes made by Apple themselves, unfortunately.

    I would like to use the Remote Assistant for Mac OSX; however, it is nt signed by the developer so I can't install it. Could someone please a) explain why the app isn't signed by the developer and b) when will it be signed? Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

    Hello David,

    The latest builds will be signed, the fact that it wasn't signed previously happened due to some minor changes on the Apple side. We have fixed it and all the newer builds are notarized properly.

    Hello,

    Well if everything goes well I presume you will be able to see it's BETA release until summer. But this is subject to discuss and change as the development process is really complex.

    When trying to connect from MAC to Windows Desktop I get an error that I'm using an older version.
    But they are the latest on both sides.

    We are experiencing the same problem as @MichelVT. The MAC version states that we are using an older version of the software. The software version on Windows is
    2.3.0.52
    
    . The software version on MAC is
    1.0.1.9
    
    .

    PS: Posting the version numbers as plain text seems to cause a glitch in the forum.

    How disappointed we have already tested remote access to windows PC with no issues and now need to be able to access Macs, after reading the previous posts it appears this is something that cannot be done as yet so it looks like we will have to user Teamviewer or LogMeIn and be tied in for a year

    Hello Charlie,

    Sad to hear it, however, the ability to control the macOS operated machines are not that far away. We are actively working on it but there are far more limitations than on Windows OS so it takes us a lot of time adapting the software to those requirements.

    Hello Hugo,

    Thank you for reporting it, we are currently investigating the issue and will deploy a fix ASAP
