    How close are we to getting Audio on Fluid? Has beta started for Fluid 2.0 yet?

    Hi, is Fluid 2.0 released yet? I would really like the feature to up the resolution when running fluid on my mac to remote into my windows server. If not, is there a release date set in mind? thanks

    @Jump Desktop Support: I think Sebastian raised a valid point here. I'm interested in using jump desktop to connect to a machine which i do not want to have any direct access to the internet.

    I think the possibility to use your cloud setup to traverse any kind of Firewall / NAT-Router is a nice and easy solution for many people. It seems that there is a trend to put as much as possible "in the cloud",  however IMHO many remote desktop users are fairly advanced users and i guess lots of them actually care about having control over everything in their local network like i do. I would also say that remote desktop is one of the most sensitive / critical things one could do with respect to security.

    Due to Jump Desktops lack of supporting RDPs inherent acceleration RemoteFX, i would really love to use Fluid. However being forced to use a cloud service in this case is a no-go for me.

    Can you tell us if you have plans to supporting direct fluid connections (or RemoteFX) in the future? In case you need testers here you can for sure add me o the list :-)

    Hi,

    I'm having an issue where I'm trying to log into a Windows 10 machine on my local network that is logged in with a domain account, I can log in with RDP but not with Fluid. I'm connecting from Android.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    File Sharing via clipboard isn't supported at the moment, however we're actively working on this for Fluid 2.0.

    It doesn't support remote audio yet, but we plan on adding it very soon.

    Maybe you guys could release a display driver for windows that has the resolutions for common tablets? 

    I just used the generic VGA adapter with the fluid device (my ipad pro) as the third display and used the max resolution and it was close (2560x1536) but 2880x1800 wasn't available as a mode...  its better than nothing, but a new device driver with that mode available would be a good start, right?

    It seems unlikely now, however, is there any chance that a Wake-on-LAN feature might be coming anytime soon? And I'd like to check out the beta, I'll shoot support an email to that effect.

    I too, like Ch Ka, would love to see a cloudless version of Fluid. I prefer to connect to my home router through a VPN - that only I control. This leaves my home network safely tucked behind an aggressive firewall, unless I and I alone connect via OpenVPN - giving me full access to all of my network, and the machines therein.

    Have tried fluid from my MAC to my office computers that are running w7 64bit and the connection was fantastic speed and response.  The only problem I can't figure out how to see my other monitor.  I only can see my one main screen.

    Just a FYI — Windows ALT-TAB (Option-Tab on a Apple keyboard) doesn’t seem to work on Fluid, even though it works fine on RDP.  This is the single thing keeping me from using Fluid.  Bug fix please?

    @Rob: We just released Jump Desktop PC Viewer 7.0.3 Beta that fixes the issue you're hitting. Can you please try downloading it from here: https://jumpdesktop.com/downloads/jdwin

    @Matt: We're planning on expanding clipboard support in Fluid so that you can drag and drop files to/from the remote machine. Would this work for you?

    In the FAQ there was a question; "Q: Why can't I automatically set the remote resolution to match my local monitor / device like RDP?"

    I'm still only able to connect to one of my remote servers at 1024 x 768, but when I use the RDP connection it is beautiful and more more higher resolution. In the answer it says this feature is being worked on but it seems like that was a long time ago now. Are there any updates? Is this feature still being worked on?

    @ch.ka: We've had a lot of interest for providing a cloudless version of Fluid and this is on our radar. I'm not sure if this is going to make it into 2.0, but this is definitely one of the things we plan to implement in the short to medium term. RemoteFX support for RDP: This is coming too - again, I unfortunately don't have a timeline, but it is planned and will be added.

    @christopher: Fluid 2.0 will support file transfer via the clipboard. We just couldn't fit that many things into the first release of Fluid. That being said - you can still use VNC or RDP with Jump Desktop Connect: Open up Jump Desktop Connect and click the settings icons. Then click 'Advanced' and turn on RDP or VNC. Make sure you have RDP / VNC configured on the computer. 

    @jason: Internal work has started on Fluid 2.0. We don't have a public beta yet though. If you're interested shoot us an email: support@jumpdesktop.com

    @chris: Alt+Tab works with Fluid when connecting to Windows (or even Macs). This is not a known issue. Can you please shoot us an email: support@jumpdesktop.com . Let us know which version of Windows you're connecting to and which device (iOS/Android/Mac/Windows), you're connecting FROM.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/nf0tzt9fq1ivmki/Screenshot%202015-11-21%2009.11.31.png?dl=0

    Any thoughts and how can I help to squash this bug?

    @Support yeah that would likely work if you can get it to work for a Mac connecting to a PC. The RDP network share works great since I can store all my utilities and scripts in my share so I don't have to copy everything to the remote machines. But a copy/paste , drag/drop, or something along those lines would be a great start.

    Automatic remote resolution switching will be part of Fluid 2.0. Is your remote server headless by any chance? Fluid 2.0 will still be limited to resolutions available on the remote computer's graphics card. So the experience will not be exactly like RDP (which can basically mimic any resolution).

    What Port does Fluid use? How do can I set up a connection through Port-Forwarding?

    Jump Desktop Support

    @Scott: To switch between monitors in the menu bar click Remote -> Displays. 

    @Chris: Fullscreen games sometimes don't work correctly (this happens with some games, not all). The solution is to run in Windowed mode at the moment (that will always fix the issue).

    Can fluid support remote audio?

    @Gollapudi Thanks for reporting this. Can you please send us the Jump Desktop Connect logs? Open up Jump Desktop Connect and then click the settings icon on the top right. Then click Diagnostics -> Diagnostic Logs. Then attach the "JumpConnectDiagLogs.zip" to an email to support@jumpdesktop.com with what you just told us. We'll take a look.

    I need to confirm that is it necessary that JumpDesktopConnect be installed in the hosting system ? By the way, I've never seen such an awesome resolution and speed with technology advance Fluid on my IPAD before. Great job !

    Loving Jump; totally worth the price - just wondering if there is an ETA for audio support for Fluid?

    Is there any way to run the desktop app as a service? It'd be nice to have it launch automatically in the background when I boot the machine so I don't have to log in with RDP, launch the app, and then log in with fluid. Thanks!

    When using Fluid, I try to scroll the screen with my finger(touch screen) it acts just like the mouse. For example on an RDP connection if you try to scroll(the screen) in windows explorer, the page would scroll. But on Fluid it tries to move the item under the cursor(I've already moved some files by accident). I'm not sure if this is intentional or not, but it's hard to get used to. It would nice to be able toggle it. Also, how else can you scroll those types of forms? Dave

    I think I have all the right versions to have this work.  However, when connecting from Mac to Windows 8.1, the fluid icon shows, but it shows a blank screen.  I know this is beta ... so hopefully the feedback is helpful.

    @DanFreed: At the moment Fluid is screen sharing only - which means it'll show you exactly what the remote screen is showing. We're investigating ways to lock the remote screen. If you require screen locking, RDP is the way to go for the time being.
