    Stream Encryption and Compression:

  • Timbuktu Pro version 8 supports SSH to encrypt and compress Timbuktu Pro connections. In addition to providing secure connections, SSH compression may increase Timbuktu Pro performance.
  • System Authentication:

  • Leveraging the security of the OS X platform, Timbuktu users can now authenticate using OS X usernames and passwords.
  • Reverse Connection Support:

  • This allows you to drag and drop files directly from the screensharing window to your own desktop, without opening a new connection, even if you're connected through a NAT router or firewall.
  • Push Installation:

  • You may now push install Timbuktu Pro onto computers you administer which have enabled Remote Login. This process will also upgrade Timbuktu Pro on computers that are running a Timbuktu Pro version older than the version on your computer.
  • Remote Configuration Options:

  • Using the push-install feature you can distribute Zones files, Timbuktu Pro preferences, site keys, and activation keys.
  • Rendezvous Integration:

  • Timbuktu Pro version 8 supports Rendezvous - Apple's zero-configuration networking technology. It's one more way to easily find and connect to other users!
  • Plus, Rendezvous can assist you with finding computers for push installation, by displaying all computers with remote login enabled, even if they do not yet have Timbuktu Pro installed.
  • Ask for Permission Enhancements:

  • Add another layer of access control by requiring your Registered Users to ask for permission before each connection. You will be able to allow or deny the incoming connection before it occurs.
  • Exchange Permission Enhancements:

  • Exchange service permissions have been improved. When remote users establish system authenticated connections to your computer, they will be granted the same file-system access privileges that are assigned to the Mac OS X user profile with which they logged in..
