Mikogo:免费的桌面共享与远程控制软件

前几天收到了 Mikogo 团队发来的一封信,希望能够在软言软语上分享 Mikogo 的试用心得。但由于最近没有什么时间,也就一直没有尝试。今天是 “10·1” 长假的最后一天,没有其他事情了,所以决定尝试一下这个免费的桌面共享与远端控制软件。测试前,先在网上搜索了一下,发现在善用佳软以及 Crazy Software 上已经有了关于该软件的评测,而且前不久善用佳软还组织了官网汉化活动,目前官网中文版也已上线了。因此,这里就不做过多的测试工作,而主要是对 Mikogo 的一个介绍以及软言软语对其中一些细节的看法,更多测试文章请参阅下面的 “推荐阅读”。

[table id=57 /]

一、Mikogo 主要特色

Mikogo是一个免费的桌面共享软件,让您能够同时间与 10 人共享您的屏幕,并且提供远程控制功能方便进行远程协助。Mikogo的主要特色还包括:

  • 商业和个人使用都免费(最多允许 10 人连接)
  • 档案小且开始使用非常简单
  • 使用界面一目了然
  • 安全:256 位 AES 加密技术
  • 跨 Mac (Intel Only)和 Windows 平台

二、Mikogo 工作方式

  1. 会议发起人和与会者目前正通过电话联系。
  2. 发起人从桌面启动会议后,从Mikogo服务器收到一个唯一的9位数的会议ID,并将会议ID告诉与会者。
  3. 与会者通过浏览器访问www.mikogo.com,点击“参加会议”。无需安装或注册,只需通过浏览器运行软件,并输入会议ID即可。
    软言软语注:起初的理解是通过浏览器运行 Java Applet 小程序来实现。但试用时发现,其实就是下载免安装的可执行程序(Mac 端是 DMG 文件包,还需要打开包将其中的文件复制出来运行),然后手动运行。另外通过查询其官方网站,似乎收费版的才有 “HTML查看器”,即不需要下载软件来手动运行。
  4. 连接立即建立,与会者可以通过Mikogo的查看器实时查看发起人的屏幕。

三、Mikogo 的主要功能

  • 桌面共享 (Mac Windows)
  • 多位与会者 (Mac Windows)
  • 切换演示者 (Mac Windows)
  • 键盘鼠标远程控制 (Mac Windows)
  • 会议排程 (Windows)
    软言软语注:此项功能可以说有其实用价值,例如为不同的任务或与会者设置不同的会议 ID,但排程后该如何管理或提醒,似乎目前还没有一个很好的处理方式。如果在 Windows 上能够与 Outlook 整合,在 Mac 上与 Calendar 整合,或与 Google Calendar 结合使用,那么这个排程将会更有效。让发起者不会错过会议,同时参与者也能够得到提醒及时参加会议。
    【更新1(2009-10-08)——Mikogo Team:设定完之後,可点击「email invitation」,在Windows平台Outlook就会自动弹出,允许用户输入联络人email,提醒要参加会议的人。
    软言软语:Email提醒是一个方面,软言软语此处的意思是,是否能够在日历排程中自动添加一条日程安排记录
  • 会议录像和回放 (Windows)
    软言软语注:如果能够提供单独的语音录制会更有针对性。
  • 白板 (Windows)
    软言软语注:白板功能在会议中还是一个很有用的功能,但目前不支持 Mac,甚为可惜。
  • 文件传送 (Mac Windows)
  • 应用程序选择 (Windows)
  • 屏幕回显 (Windows)
  • 与会者指针 (Mac Windows)
  • 复制/粘贴/电邮会议信息 (Mac Windows)
  • 传输暂停 (Mac Windows)
  • 电话会议服务 (Mac Windows)

目前,Mac 版软件还有很多工作需要做,其中包括一些比较重要的功能还没有加入。

四、Mikogo 的安全性

  • 256 位 AES 加密
  • 128 位 SSL 网站加密
  • 独一无二的会议 ID 和会议密码
  • 角色和职责:发起人、演示者和与会者,权限明确
  • 防止第三方进入
  • 不储存会议数据
  • 明确同意:在与会者明确同意之前,没有人可以查看或控制该与会者的桌面
  • 随时禁用远程控制

Mikogo 的安全性对于一般使用者或小型商用来说已经是足够了,不过对于大型企业似乎还是没有太多的吸引力。

五、Mikogo 与 Netmeeting

可能有些人会拿 Mikogo 与 Netmeeting 作比较,但显然两者有很多的不同。首先,Mikogo 需要在其官方网站注册,发起会议的时候也需要连接官方服务器,因此 Mikogo 是不能在无 Internet 环境的局域网中使用的。相反地,Netmeeting 则只能应用于局域网或广域网中,不能在 Internet 中的任何两点发起网络会议或远程协助,而且 Netmeeting 可以作为服务运行于 Windows 服务器上,供其他用户远程登录,Mikogo 则不行,其只能有人发起才可以进行远端控制。所以,两款软件还是各有其不同的用途的。而成如善用佳软所言,“善用佳软把它作为广域网(软言软语注:此处应为互联网更为合适)和多人网络会议的首选。而Mikogo Skype Extra,更是强强联手,成为极具竞争力的免费在线会议方案。

六、其它

Mikogo 需要先在其官方网站上注册一个账户,才能够使用。而注册的过程中,必须输入 “姓” 和 “名”,个人认为这点比较麻烦,完全可以用一个昵称来代替,或者加上一个昵称,让 “姓” 和 “名” 成为可选项。就像其官网上说的,很多人只是想要临时或短期使用,那么注册已经显得比较麻烦,而且还需要输入两个字段的内容,这一点似乎就不如 TeamViewer(虽然其暂时还只是作为远程协助被使用)。

另外,在 Windows 上的 Mikogo 选项中, 如果打开 “Settings -> Preferences”,CPU 马上升高,鼠标会不停闪烁,似乎是由于 Mikogo 在实时刷新桌面造成的。

不过,Mikogo 还有 2 个值得注意的亮点Mozilla Firefox 的加载项 与 Skype 扩展。通过安装 Firefox 扩展,使用者可以很方便的在浏览网页时发起或参与网络会议,相信对于一些在线教育的网站还是极具价值。而 Skype 扩展则能够允许用户邀请最多 10 人来参加网络会议,并同时使用网络电话,“想不花一毛钱就一边共享桌面一边打网络电话” 不再是梦想。

最后有一点疑问,Mikogo 最近的种种举动似乎预示其对于国内市场还是很有兴趣的,官网中文版也已经上线了,但中文版的软件不知道何时才会推出?

【更新1(2009-10-08)——Mikogo Team:软件中文化肯定是未来努力的方向,目前计画先推出多语言的网页,下一步则是进行软件多语言化,敬请期待。】

PS:为了测试 Mikogo 的跨平台使用效果,打开了多日不用的 Mac,但结果让我有些失望。下载了 12M+ 的 Mikogo 安装包后,发现不支持 PowerPC 的 Mac 机器,看来从 Snow Leopard 推出后,PowerPC 真的是被彻底淘汰了。

七、推荐阅读

【更新1(2009-10-08)——Mikogo Team:远端控制双边都可进行:
– 发起人可以到菜单栏中点击remote control,将控制权交给选定的与会者。
– 发起人若点击Switch presenter,就可看到对方桌面,发起人可以在自己的菜单栏中选择request remote control,就可控制对方桌面;而对方的菜单栏里也会有交出remote control的选项,允许发起人控制对方桌面。

【更新说明:文章发布后,很快收到了 Mikogo Team 对其中一些问题的解释。原文中蓝色加粗部分为 Mikogo Team 回复,绿色加粗为软言软语的回复。】

“Mikogo:免费的桌面共享与远程控制软件”上的365条回复

“您不需要配置Mikogo,也不必调整您的计算机网络或防火墙设置。Mikogo会自动检测您的计算机网络和代理服务器设置,因此可以在NAT、路由器、防火墙和代理服务器之下工作。”
以上是官网的介绍,因此我想Mikogo是可以满足你的需要的。

在桌面共享和远程控制这一块的流畅度和清晰度没法跟专业的turbomeeting比哦 还得加把劲

我们公司之前也用过,但是网络环境实在是太复杂了,我们这样的网络环境只能用专业的Turbomeeting来实现

感觉跟我们公司用的Turbomeeting很像哦 功能上,但没我们现在用的Turbomeeting流畅哦 清晰度也不不是 而且开网络视频会议的语音也没有turbomeeting给力 。。。。

郁闷不能建立虚拟VPN…..算了我还是用保密性高一些的turbomeeting网络视频会议服务器算了

楼上的我也有同感 功能怎么跟我们公司用的Turbomeeting那么像??但是桌面共享的流畅度和清晰度 以及语音的高清度都没我们现在用的好哦,算了 租赁的还是不稳定的

天啊 这个是模仿美国RHUB通信那边的网络视频会议服务器的么?
