On Premise Relay Server

Starting with Jump Desktop Connect 6.7.42 you can run on-premise, high availability relay servers. Relay servers allow you to control how Jump Desktop traffic is routed through your infrastructure and isolate traffic to a specific host. All traffic is run through a specific set of UDP ports so you can control exactally what goes in and out and apply proper QoS if needed. You can use on-premise relay servers for better performance and increased security.

To get started, see the On-Premise Relay documentation.



Disconnect Connections From The Dashboard

Some time back we added the ability for Teams Enterprise customers to see in real time, all active connections to their team's computers from the dashboard. Today, we've added the ability that lets admins force disconnect a connection straight from the team dashboard. To force disconnect a connection, drill down to the active connection and then click the red X icon to disconnect the user. This will force disconnect the user's active session.

Filter and search computers and users

Filter and search computers

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.

Filter and search users

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.

Save on Team Licenses by Disabling Remote Access for 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 Audio Drivers for Mac

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.
