1Remote allow you add credentials for alternative use. You can switch between them manually or automatically when open connections.


Sometimes you need to connect to the same server with different credentials or different host address. For example:

  • Case1: You connect to a server with a normal account mostly, and connect to the same server with a root account when do some maintenance work.
  • Case2: You connect to your NAS with LAN address at home, while connect to the same NAS with WAN address when you are outside.



In 1Remote "Alternative-credential" can help you smoothly switch between different address and account.

In edit page, there's a session for alternative credentials. You can add a new credential by clicking the + button. Also you can edit or delete a credential by clicking the Edit button or Delete button.


When you add a new credential, you need to fill the name, others are optional. The name is used to identify the credential, and it will be shown in the credential list.
