OptiTune v5.2 Released, adds File Transfer tool and refined Remote Assistance, other fixes

We are pleased to announce the release of OptiTune Version 5.2

OptiTune V5.2 adds the following new features and updates:

  • File Transfer – Use the File Transfer tool to manually transfer files between your IT administrator’s computer, and any managed computer.  Optionally, notify the end user when the IT administrator initiates a file transfer session.  This new tool is available on the Computer Details page, and internally uses the Remote Connect technology built into OptiTune.
  • Windows Update Group Policy Settings – Control the Windows Automatic Update agent (WUA) built into windows through settings defined in OptiTune.  Manage settings for Windows 10’s “Delivery Optimization” P2P service, to control how Windows 10 updates are delivered.
  • Agent Polling Refinements – The OptiTune agent polls the management server at predefined intervals, based on the administrator’s activity level and usage of the management server.  These polling times have decreased for better responsiveness.
  • Remote Assistance Improvements – The remote assistance feature in OptiTune now uses the same technology as Remote Connect, so when a user creates a Remote Assistance request, the administrator can connect to the computer even if the request has been closed by the end user, and will be able to see any escalation prompts/logon screen, as was always the case with Remote Connect.

OptiTune v5.1 Released, adds realtime Task Manager and System Services tools

  • Remote System Services – Manage all windows system services from this tool.  Start, Stop, Pause, and Resume any system service, or change the startup type (Manual, Disabled, Automatic, etc…).  View which services are running, and which have stopped, and more.

OptiTune v5.0 Released, adds Remote Command Prompt for quicker administration

We are pleased to announce the release of OptiTune Version 5.0

OptiTune V5.0 adds the following new features and updates:

  • Remote Command Prompt – Have you ever wanted to start a command prompt on a managed computer right from your web browser?  OptiTune now lets you do so, so you can quickly peform simple administrative tasks using the windows command prompt you already know.  Go to the computer details page, and click on “Command Prompt” to start the web based command prompt, with a real time, live connection to any computer managed through OptiTune.
  • Remote Access Privacy Settings – New settings have been added in “Remote Support” > “Settings” to allow you to enable/disable the Remote Connect functionality for any computer, as well as the real time tools such as the new Command Prompt.  You can also specify a notification message, to let your end users know when you have connected and are performing administrative work on their computer.
  • Bug fixes, Performance Improvements – We’ve added several performance improvements to the OptiTune Agent, so configuration changes you make in the web based console will take hold more quickly.
