Download: Yoics for Windows alpha 2.4.0

If you are still using version 1.X of Yoics, you MUST uninstall that program prior to installing this one.

Yoics version 2.X uses Microsoft .net framework version 2.0. If the Yoics setup determines that Microsoft .net framework it is not loaded on your system, it will do it for you. This step can take up to 20 minutes. Vista has Microsoft .net built in, so no extra download is required, but it does have its own set of additonal configuration steps.

New/improved features:

Yoics Folders

Remote file access and sharing has never been easier. With Yoics folders, your remote folders open up right into your filesystem and you can drag-drop files in and out of them, just like any other folder. And if you're using either Vista or OSX, you'll even get a preview thumbnail. Yoics also allows you to configure as many folders as you'd like, with unique sharing permission for each one, so sharing your files with work associates, family and friends is as easy as a right-mouse-click.

Pre-configured Real VNC

Sometimes accessing files or folders just isn't enough, especially if you're providing computer support for a less than savvy computer user that you know. Yoics now features pre-configured RealVNC, so remotely managing computers with your keyboard and mouse is as easy as a double-mouse click. RealVNC is one of the most popular remote desktop programs on the market, and we've pre-configured the free version to work with Yoics, so you can access remote machines without requiring complex virtual private network (VPN) or router configuration. If you've got your own preferred remote desktop program, no worries, Yoics is easily configured to work with the application of your choice. RealVNC personal edition, TightVNC and even Microsoft Remote Desktop are already drop-down menu choices.

Yoics NOW

Files and remote desktop are undoubtedly the two most popular things that people want access to. But lets face it, there are thousands of other network devices and services that would be awesome to have remote access into, and with Yoics NOW it's immediately possible. Want to print to your network printer from vacation? No problem. Want to get to your router's configuration screen without having to open a hole in your firewall? Easy. Whether it's a dedicated network device or a TCP/IP service running on your machine, Yoics NOW allows you to transform it into a remote accessible and shareable internet resource.

Right-click to share

Web 2.0 technologies have transformed the way that we want to use the Internet. No longer are we satisfied with simply going to websites, or storing our information locally. We want our information available from anywhere and shareable with anyone, anytime that we choose. Yoics brings this paradigm to your devices. So whether it's a remote desktop you want to share to conduct a meeting, a folder of design files that you want to share with a client, or a printer you want to share with colleagues - sharing those devices across the internet is now only a right-mouse click away.
