Hi,
I just saw your takeover of the project, it's a gret news.
I'm a french avid user of your programm.

Liste of my idea for this programm, partly based on my customs tools:

- PSExec -> to execute directly in command line some actions
- Accès to system share folder (c$, d$), with integration of windows explorer in tab.
- An history in database to know who made change. We are using the application in workgroup.
- possibility to add manually tools, like ssh transfert.

In any case, thank you for continuing the development of this useful application, while maintaining the lightness,graphic simplicity and responsiveness, which are lacking from your paid competitor .

Regards,

ben

Ok, first, sorry to hear you lost your job. Hopefully you will find a new one quickly or even better, make a living of mRemoteNG

I really like the Flattr (http://flattr.com/thing/1180389/mRemoteNG) initiative, which really supports an ongoing project, which i think is even better than a one-time donation with PayPal (which is fine as well don't get me wrong). I hadn't heard of Flattr before, but I really like the concept and mRemoteNG is my first Flattr

Anyway, about the topic. I like free programs but I don't mind paying for them either, if they are worth it.

One of such programs, for instance is PicPick, a screenshot tool (yes, even better than snagit imho).
http://www.picpick.org/en/
The paid version doesn't give any extra features compared to the free version. The only difference is that lately the free version installer
is getting bloated with free extra software, so you need to pay attention when installing.
Why would I pay 30 bucks for a paid version then? Well, they promise a lifetime license and then I don't mind paying 30-50 euro's for a program, knowing I am supporting the development of a great tool.

Another free program I like is Sandboxie (http://www.sandboxie.com/), a tool to run a program in a sandbox (you know them keygenerators can be tricky sometimes ;) ) Again, no difference between the free and the paid version, accept that the free version will give you 5 seconds delay before you can use it. Here they also provide a lifetime upgrade license for around 30 bucks and I am planning on getting that licensed as well.

So, what style of licensing I don't like? For instance Nero, a CD/DVD/Blueray burning tool (http://www.nero.com/eng/). Okay around 50 bucks for the basic verion should be no problem. But then it comes, every year they bring out a new version, with little extra features or added value. So after one year, you're left hanging with an outdated version of the product, and the solution, of course pay another 50 bucks or slightly less for an upgrade version. Those schemes where you have to keep on pulling your wallet to keep on using a product (and of course you would always want to have the latest version), is not the way to go in my opinion.

Anyway, for extra features:
- what the poster (bendab) above me already mentioned, access to the admin shares on a windows machine is pretty nice. I reminds of the VMware Guest Console (VGC) feature (http://labs.vmware.com/flings/vgc). With VGC you can browse explorer style through your VM's. You can also stop and stop processes within the VM and a very nice feature I find, is to start an application (only portable applications) within the VM, while the executable resides somewhere on your local disk for instance.
- adding PsExec (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx) features can be nice and once you combine those with NirCmd (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html) you can do some hefty tricks on a remote machine. E.g. unmute a computer, put the volume on maximum and play a movie on screen.

Well, I think I'm out of babble for now.

Cheers,
Rogier

I would also recomend a "freemium" aproach.

Good core features, expanded for paying customers.

as a sidenote, I'm all using this tool for some time, and so do the other IT at work. We'll recently hhad a chat with our CAO regarding the benefit of supporting the development of quality software.

I have been using this programs for the last couple of weeks and I really like it. I had tried superputty and putty connection manager and neither of them work very well. I will be donating 10 dollars once I get done with this post to help support your development efforts. Some features I would love to see:

- Automatic login for telnet
- Automatic reconnect for ssh when disconnected. SecureCRT implements this by having the enter key reconnect when the session has disconnected.
- An ability to send saved commands to my SSH/telnet sessions like in SecureCRT

Thanks much for a great product.

Very nice app. It might have good future if you won't quit enhancing it.
There is only one thing that stops me from moving to mRemoteNG

I am using PuTTY Connection Manager and it allows me to use login macro feature that saves me minutes/hours by entering usernames (and optionally, passwords) when initiating Telnet and SSH session, which us awesome.

If you can add same feature to mRemoteNG, I will be the first one to donate and move to mRemoteNG. As for now, I will stay with PuTTY CM.

Good luck.

The feature is already for a long time in MRemoteNG (as i understand... ;))
When you configure an SSH or telnet connection, you can configure username and/or password
You can even choose for each connection the Putty settings you want.

Maybe i misunderstand your request...

MremoteNG is a very nice an usefull app!
Thanks for it ;)

What you say is only true for SSH, because SSH support username/password pre-provisioning... If you try to configure Telnet - you will see there's no option to specify username.
PuTTY Connection Manager provides this functionality using macros input... you can provide username and it is being entered after TCP connection is up.... just sends a string as a username

And I need it :)
This is really the ONLY reason that stops me from using mRemoteNG... it is good app, indeed! But, I am lazy to enter usernames. And I have plenty of Telnet sessions that can not be easily changed to SSH :(

Well... I have donated few minutes ago. We switched to SSH in the company and now your tool is very neat for me.

Although, I would like to see Telnet username/password pre-provisioning feature in some future release (using simple delayed input, of course)... and, if you can adopt your Import feature to support PuTTY Connection Manager file format... I will be very happy, because my PuTTY CM database consist of hundreds of devices... and I am scared of the manual migration process... Ughh...

Thanks
