Software Update: AnyDesk 4.3.0

Version 4.3.0 of AnyDesk for Windows has been released. With this program, which is being developed by former TeamViewer employees, another computer can be taken over to manage it remotely. The program is available for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, macOS, Android and iOS, although not every platform has the same version number. It is free for home use, for commercial use you can pay on an annual basis, or immediately for a period of six years, which reduces the total cost. It does not matter how many updates are released in the meantime. The changelog of the last few versions looks like this:

Version 4.3.0 (Windows)

New Features

  • Added a setting for Windows Terminal Servers to dis-/allow the remote user to see the list of currently logged in users when asked for where to connect to.
  • New command line parameter “–file-transfer” to start a file session from the command line.
  • Added a feature which allows to terminate running sessions from inside AnyDesk. This allows users to start sessions when the session limit of the license is exceeded by freeing sessions.
  • Windows Terminal Server: Added a dialog which allows to choose a user.
  • AnyDesk now connects using port 6568 in addition to the standard ports 80 and 443.

Fixed Bugs

  • In some cases, AnyDesk would display the unknown mouse cursor (“?”) in cases where it could have displayed the actual mouse cursor instead. The unknown mouse cursor is used in cases when there is no mouse attached to the device and AnyDesk can not obtain a mouse cursor icon or force the system to display a mouse cursor.
  • Fixed problems which could occur when the horizontal resolution was not divisible by 16.
  • Fixed a crash related to the cursor.
  • Fixed a crash during registration of the first incoming session.
  • Custom Client: For an incoming file transfer session AnyDesk did not check if file transfer was set to disallowed by an override. As a result file transfer was still possible.
  • Custom Client: In the security settings AnyDesk did not show if the file transfer permission is overridden.
  • Fixed a rare crash when using two main windows during installation.
  • Fixed sorting using the list view header in the address book.
  • Fixed filtering in the address book.
