    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.
  • Enhanced Screen-Sharing Preferences:

  • In Timbuktu Pro version 8, preferences for Guest and Host can be defined separately, and both offer a number of new options, each of which may increase the performance or security of your screen-sharing sessions.
  • On-the-Fly Preferences:

  • The screen-sharing window's system menu has been expanded to allow you to control settings for the screen-sharing window itself, or to change the host preferences on the fly, during an active screen-sharing session.
  • Extended Logging:

  • Timbuktu Pro now supports two different types of centralized logging for all the Timbuktu Pro computers on your network Timbuktu Log Server, or NT Event Log Server as well as a locally stored Event Log file. With these, you can more easily track performance, security and usage of Timbuktu Pro.
  • Single-Stream Connections:

  • Timbuktu Pro now uses single-stream TCP connections by default, making it even easier to configure for operation through a firewall or NAT router.
  • MSI Installer:

  • Timbuktu is now packaged using a fully-compliant MSI installer, giving you more options during installation.
