I’ve been usingdiffernet VNC viewers to connect to OSX in the last years but now came accross Remotix by Nulana.
It solves some typical VNC problems which made VNC not really a productive alternative:
- built in support for the Appe ScreenSharing encryption
- pasteboard sharing (it acutally works smoothly)
- Apple adaptive codec (it makes it really fast – feels like you are actually at the remote mac
- lets you select to which monitor you want to connect (acutally the only vnc client I found so far which does this)
- lets you lock the remote screen (no other vnc client does it)
- automatically sets the correct keyboard layout (workin with an Apple keyboard on a win 10 now really works)
- ssh tunnels
- RDP (windows)
- there are also Android /iOS Apps available – havent tried them yet.
Drawback: its commercial license is for private use $39,99 and professional use $79,99.
I am giving a try the next 15 days – thats the freemium period.
Wenn Win 10 mal nicht zu einem eigentlich bekannten WLAN verbinden will, kann man so die vorhandenen WLAN Profile anzeigen…
- Kommandozeile öffnen: Windows Taste drücken und CMD eingeben.
- WLAN Profile anzeigen: „netsh wlan show profiles“
… und das Betroffene dann löschen: „netsh wlan delete profile name=“PROFILNAME“
Dann einfach neu connecten.
On my journey on a switch from OS X to Windows 10 one of the missing bits in the daily usage was the „Quick Look“ / Preview feature in OS X. Its annoying having to double click in explorer lists, just to see whats in the file.
Throwing in seer, which does exactly that – its customizable with shortcuts and extendable via plugins (autocad, office etc.).
The office plugin isn’t the best to be honest, the natve picture, pdf etc. previes are working as expected: fast and stable.
The only thing which was sticking me to OS X was the abiltiy to use the terminal for ssh connections and native stuff.
Well, I just found mobaxterm for windows which is SO_MUCH_MORE than just a terminal, its a joke I didn’t find out earlier about it. Its a cygwin wrapper, but only roughly 20MB.
Its not only a full blown xterm, but it´s
- build in graphical sftp client which follows the terminal (!) (dragndrop)
- tabbed ssh terminal
- Lean Texteditor
- VNC client
- graphical SSH tunnel builder
- Network Scanner
- Network Packets capturing
- and much more
I have to say I am truly impressed – its a huge productivity boost for me.
Hint, if you need to find the bin folder: echo „/bin PATH = $(cygpath -w /bin)“
