MeshCentral
Based on a local peer-to-peer mesh of agents, this secure and
scalable architecture solves the outside-in problem with no
network setup

Mesh Agent runs on:
• Microsoft Windows (32bit & 64bit)
•
•
•
•
Apple Mac OSX (x86)
Linux (x86, 64bit, MIPS, ARMv6)
Raspberry Pi & PogoPlug (ARMv6)
Xen (x86)
• Google Android (x86, ARM)
Agent is open source.
All Mesh Code is 100% Intel.

Mesh Agents are signed and self-updating from the server and
from other agents. Scalable update and agents.
Over 100 agents updates have been this way.

Mesh agents have their own messaging API application can use
to unicast to a single agent, or multicast in the P2P network.
In both cases, the message will “hop” from node-to-node.

Web based remote desktop encodes the desktop as JPEG
images and sends them to a web or C# client. The web client
uses an HTML5 canvas to display the decoded output and
capture input.

Secure Direct Connections Behind NAT’s
• Agents have STUN support and a WebRTC data channel
stack.
• Management traffic can flow directly from a console to a relay
agent within a network.
• Use direct tunnel for any TCP traffic: KVM, Files, Intel®

Mesh Server Direct Connections
• If the Mesh server is installed in an intranet environment, a the
server direct mode can be enabled.
• Nodes are checked to see if they are directly routable.
• Server initiates TCP connects to routable nodes.
• No relay agents needed.

Remote access to private web pages. A routing cookie is sent to
the browser along with a redirection to a different web port. Each
HTTP request is forwarded over the P2P network.

The Meshcentral multi-display feature uses both Websockets and
WebRTC for more efficient traffic handling.
Efficient use of a single Web Socket to
relay
all of the desktop thru Meshcentral
Meshcentral new Multi-Desktop feature.
Monitor many computer’s screens at once.
If the browser supports it, create many
WebRTC connections to the target computer
for even more efficiency & speed
