Get started

Once enabling the QUIC, when establishing a remote session the Splashtop Business app will be best effort trying QUIC connection, and if it is not supported due to different firewall/network environments, the remote connection will be taking advantage of our relay servers, just like normal remote connections.

For unattended sessions:

On the computer list in the Splashtop Business app, click the gear icon of a computer profile. There will be a toggle to turn on QUIC.

For attended sessions:

  • On Windows device, before you establish an SOS remote session, please go to File dropdown menu / Options / Advanced to check Enable QUIC for attended sessions.
  • On Mac device, the menu under Splashtop Business dropdown menu / Preferences / Advanced.
  • On iOS device, the menu is under Settings / Optimization.


How to verify if it is QUIC or normal relay protocol used in a remote session

  1. During the remote session, click the eye-like icon on the toolbar, then Performance Status
  2. In the status window, you can check the Connection type.
