Connection Pool

Connection pool feature available in version of our Business app w/ Splashtop Enterprise.

Connection pool feature in Scheduled access, allows your users to connect to any available computers in a group. It's a great feature to use for customers who want their users to access any available computers, especially in scheduled access and RDP connection scenario. 

When enabled, a quick Connect button will appear so you can connect to available computers inside the computer group. You can expand the resource group and connect to a specific computer as well. Only owners/admins/group admins can enable this feature. See screenshots below. 




You can enable connection pool when creating your resource:  Management > Scheduled Access > Create Resource.

Under Advanced settings you can select Support connection pool for schedules. When selected this enables the ability to use connection pool for all schedules under this resource. When toggled ON it also allows to Set the schedule as connection pool. Which forces all schedules to use connection pool by default.





When creating your schedule: Management > Scheduled Access > (Resource name) > Create Schedule.

Under Advanced Setting you have the option to Set the schedule as connection pool.
