IMPORTANT NOTES:   THIS IS A BETA RELEASE.
KNOWN ISSUES:

  1. The web viewer crashes the Mac Host (This means only connect from the PC Viewer (Join) to a Mac for now). To recover you must right click on the RemoteToPC cloud in the upper right on the Mac host and then relaunch it from Applications.
  2. The “Turn Off” and “Turn On” in the Management screen does not update the “Enabled” or Disabled” status indicator on the same page
  3. During installation, if a computer with the same name as your Mac already exists in your command center the installation will report “Wrong Api” error instead of informing a user that a computer by the same name exists.
