About a month ago, we announced our first release of DameWare since it became part of the SolarWinds family. We are really pleased with the feedback that we have been getting on this release from DameWare customers as well as SolarWinds users who have taken a few moments to check it out.  The DameWare products allow system administrators to easily manage Windows servers, workstations, desktops, and laptops from remote locations. The release brings a couple of great features that the community has been clamoring for, as well as some tweaks and fixes that will make every user’s experience a bit smoother.


What’s New in DameWare?

Chat – Now you can chat online with your remote user as you troubleshoot or configure the remote machine. Now, there is no need to open WordPad™ to type back and forth. Just one click on the chat button in the top menu, and a chat window with the remote user opens automatically.

Screenshots – Click to quickly capture and save a screenshot from the remote machine. Now there is no need to go through the process of pasting your screenshot into Paint™ and then saving it. One click, one step, and it’s saved! This feature is invaluable in troubleshooting scenarios such as documenting errors or configuration settings, especially since a picture is worth a thousand words!

DameWare still has the same super cost-effective pricing model (priced per admin user instead of by managed machine) and all the great functionality you’ve come to expect. In fact, WindowsNetworking.com recently recognized DameWare NT Utilities with two 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards, taking the top spot in two categories -- Administration Tools and Remote Control.
