Who should install Splashtop Virtual Driver on Mac Streamer?

If you will be using one of the following features of Splashtop Personal (Splashtop 2), please remember to install our Virtual Driver, and then re-start your computer after this driver is installed.

  • If you want to connect your tablet or phone to your Mac when it is in a logged-off state:
    The Virtual Driver makes it possible for you to connect to your Mac even though it's in a logged-off status.  Then you can type the password for your "Mac user account" from your tablet or phone directly to log in again.  Please be aware that you will get a disconnection during the process of logging in to your computer, but you can re-connect again a couple of minutes later, after your Mac has completed all log-in processes.
  • If you want to connect your tablet or phone to a headless Mac, like the Mac mini, you need to have our Virtual Driver installed.
  • If you want to use the "Blank Screen" feature on your Mac so that others cannot see what you are doing on the remote computer, you need to install the Virtual Driver.
  • If you want to connect your tablet or phone to a Mac that is in Display Sleep mode (on Lion and Mountain Lion), you also need to have our Virtual Driver installed first.

 

To install the Splashtop Virtual Driver:

Launch the Mac Streamer.   Then, in the Settings tab of the Mac Streamer dialog box, select the Install Driver button.

    I have Splashtop on my desktop.  I use it to connect to a remote computer (i.e. trustee). Another person wants to use Splashtop to connect to the same remote computer (trustee).  How do we establish the second connection?

    @Timothy_kendrick66,

    Splashtop is a service that could make you establish a remote session from any devices to your Mac/PC.
