If you've updated to Jump Desktop 7.0 for iOS or Jump Desktop 6.0 for Mac, then you might have trouble connecting to computers running an older version of the automatic setup component. To fix this please make sure you upgrade the remote computers to the new Jump Desktop Connect app. Jump Desktop Connect replaces the older automatic setup component and updating to it should fix all connectivity issues with Jump Desktop 7.x for iOS and Jump Desktop 6.x for Mac. To update the remote computer simply visit https://jumpdesktop.com/go on the remote computer and follow the instructions there.
Android users: If you're connecting to your computers using Jump Desktop for Android please do not update to Jump Desktop Connect yet. There is a known issue with the current Android production release - we'll be releasing a new update for Android soon that resolves the issue with Jump Desktop Connect.
A little more information: In Sept 2015 we released Jump Desktop 7.0 for iOS and Jump Desktop 6.0 for Mac with a complete rewrite of how automatic connections work. In addition to this we also released a new automatic setup component called Jump Desktop Connect that replaces the old automatic setup component going forward. Please update your remote PCs and Macs to Jump Desktop Connect ASAP as we've dropped support for the older automatic setup components.
The new Jump Desktop Connect app does everything the old automatic setup component did and has these additional features:
You can now give multiple users access to the same computer. Previously you had to share the same account between all users. It's much simpler now - just add each user's account to Jump Desktop Connect on the remote computer. Very useful for tech support or when multiple family members / co-workers need access to the same computer.
Truly unlimited number of computers per account. Virtually limitless number of computers can now be managed using the same account (previously we were limited to Google's 10 login limit per account).
Connect from places where Google is blocked: Surprisingly Google is blocked in a lot of places: Schools, offices, all of China. Well you don't need to worry about it anymore, because we don't use Google servers!
Doesn't require a Google account anymore. You can sign up and login using any old email address.
Auto updates in the background: The latest and greatest version without needing to manually log in and apply updates - unless of-course you enjoy manually updating Jump on all your computers, in which case you can disable automatic updates.
And also: Fluid Remote Desktop...
