You can now quickly search and filter through computers and users on your team's dashboard. See which computers are currently online, offline or currently being used. In your team's dashboard click Computers.
You can also filter between users This is useful when you want to quickly see which computers are online, offline, which computers are currently being used. In your team's dashboard click Users.
You can now save on Jump Desktop for Team licenses by temporarily disabling remote access for users and administrators on a team. This is useful when a Team member goes on vacation, a production goes on hiatus or if you have an administrator on the team who does not need to connect to computers. When a user's remote access is disabled, they will no longer be able to connect to computers on the team and we'll stop billing for that user. Since Jump Desktop for Teams billing is prorated, you will never pay extra. You can re-enable a user's remote access anytime.
Administrators who have their remote access disabled will still be able to administer the team. This way you can have multiple administrators on the team without having to pay extra.
To disable a user's remote access visit your team's dashboard -> Users -> the user -> three dots on the top right -> Disable Remote Access. Similarly to enable remote remote access Users -> the user -> three dots on the top right -> Enable Remote Access.
Jump Desktop Connect 6.5.x now ships it's very own high quality, low latency audio drivers for Mac. Third party drivers are no longer needed to stream audio from a Mac (though we will still support third party audio drivers).
The drivers are automatically installed when you install Jump Desktop Connect 6.5.x or later. Once installed you will see a new audio device called Jump Desktop Audio. Any audio sent to this device will be streamed to the Jump Desktop client.
The new audio drivers are compatible with macOS 10.10+ on Intel and Apple Silicon.
Jump Desktop lets you add computers to a team so that all members can access and share the computers. This feature raises a problem, i.e., multiple users trying to access the same machine.
Jump Desktop (Mac), now shows you if a remote computer has users connected to it. It also shows the emails of the connected users so that you can identify the users currently accessing it.
This feature is available for Teams Enterprise customers.
We have added helpful, but unobtrusive, indicators in the UI.
"Occupied" computers have a distinctive red icon in the icon mode, hovering over the icon shows the connected users' emails.
The list view has a column for "Connected Users".
You can also take advantage of the "Occupied" and "Unoccupied" filters from the filter bar.
"Current Active Connections" card shows the list of computers to which users are currently connected. A subtle badge, with a red background, displays the number of connected users.
Visit the active computer's page to view the currently connected users details like their IP addresses.
"Occupied" computers have a distinctive red icon in the icon mode, hovering over the icon shows the connected users' emails

Jump Desktop Connect has a built-in technology that tries its best to create an end to end encrypted connection between machines, even if there is no direct path between the two hosts using indirect networking routes and relays. This feature frees up users from manually opening ports and configuring network settings. However, this also creates problems in locked-down environments where administrators need to control when a user is allowed to connect.
You can now configure Jump Desktop Connect to allow connections only when there is a direct networking path between the devices.
In this mode, Jump will never fallback on relay servers or take indirect networking routes. So for example, if a user tries to connect without VPN enabled from another network, the connection attempt fails because Jump will not be able to find a direct route between the user and the target machine.
Note: In this mode, Administrators must make sure that their firewall rules allow the VPN IP address pool to communicate over UDP with the host machines. Connections will fail otherwise.
How to configure Direct Connection Mode
Lock down settings let you enforce settings for the Jump Desktop Connect app from your team's web dashboard. Once settings are assigned to a machine, it can not be changed from the Jump Desktop Connect app running on the host machines.
You can apply settings to individual machines on your team or to entire access groups.
How to get started with Lockdown settings.
You'll notice that the Configuration window lists quite a few configuration options that are not available inside the Jump Desktop Connect app - such as the ability to turn off screen sharing, adding remote access users, configuring fluid ports. Here's a screenshot of what you can configure:
Once settings are applied to machines, the Jump Desktop Connect app on the machines will display a message in the Settings window: Settings are managed by your team's administrator.
Jump Desktop Connect and Jump Desktop for Mac now support completely cloudless Fluid connections. This means that you can now use Fluid without any cloud dependencies. This is useful for environments that require super-high security or otherwise don't have access to the internet.
Limitations of Cloudless Fluid Connections
How to Enable Cloudless Fluid On The Remote Computer
There are two ways to enable Cloudless Fluid Connections - you can use either way:
1. In your Team's dashboard use the Lock down settings feature. Specifically you'll need to turn on the Manual Fluid Connections option:
2. Alternative way if the computer does not have any access to the cloud: Open up Jump Desktop Connect on the remote computer and then click the Settings icon -> Advanced -> CHECK Fluid -> CHECK Manual Fluid Connections.
How to Connect to Computers With Cloudless Fluid Enabled
