Why not? 15 million iPads and counting, all roaming. Our company has used Radmin for 7 years but we are all getting iPads now for out of office work and need to log into the office. that's about 30 licenses just from us, that will have to move to a different solution. I imagine the same is true for quite a few of those 15 million, your missing serious business guys.
True, more and more people are using tablets and wanting to remotely connect to their PCs. It's an awesome opportunity for someone to develop a viewer for that. The only reason I can imagine Famatech is so easy in passing up this opportunity is because they are already filthy rich from existing Radmin server software and they just can't be bothered. Why they don't employ more programmers is also beyond me. And it's true, there aren't any new versions out. The newest one is already old and many useful features still missing. Such a pity.
We need you to step up progress on this project. I have directly sold hundreds and hundreds of Radmin licences as Tech. dir. Of two companies. I have recommended the purchase of 5 times that to companies who bought directly and I continue to convert people to e understanding that Radmin is vastly superior to RDP clients and VNC in multiple ways. Those who understand a quality solution understand and buy Radmin. Indeed I am to quote another 20 user licence tomorrow to a huge multinational 'energy producing' company.
This week alone I have configured over 200 iPad VPN end points to various organisations networks and right now I am typing this message on an iPad using a really crummy nfree RDP client. I can't drag and drop, I can't right click and I can't cut and paste the clipboard. I am about to buy all the available RDP clients and choose one to recommend. I really really wish I was recommending Radmin - which is my only recommendation for Windows systems.
If I could be showing these peope an iPad version of Radmin I know it would be selling like hot cakes! Forget file transfer, forget Telnet, DOS prompt etc. Just make your viewer client for the iPAD. Charge for the viewer at 4.99 RRP and you will sell hundreds of thousands in very short order.
Please make sure you include the ability to set the screen refresh to 10 per second ( that as a default would be nice) because 80% of the usage will be WAN and 10 updates per second works well, 100 screws up both client and server performance. When i recommend Radmin I wlaways tell my end user this change MUST be made to have a good experience. I have told you guys this in the past. Can anyone join in on this point?
Please carry on developing but please just get the main requirement sorted. We would love to have Radmin server on an iPad and iPhone for convenience but I believe that Apple are blocking this. Get over this And just get a client sorted out and skip all the file access stuff which I believe is also Apple trouble. A Radmin client ASAP will enable me and the thousands like me to use and recommend Radmin as the iPad via VPN to office computer as the secure, super fast and reliable answer as it has always been in the PC to PC/server world. Do make sure that tap, hold and drag works and well as tap and hold for 1500ms for right click work and you'll fly right to the top of iPad remote clients where you belong.
If you need help, contact me on the email adds attached to this forum account.
We have a working prototype, which is very fast and smooth. However the release of iOS/Android version is bounded to our next major release (that is inevitable by technical reasons). I hope that we can release it this year.
