Using the remote access

Log in to any server from everywhere via SSH or Remote Desktop

Create a tunnel

To log in to a remote system located behind a firewall or NAT router, you need a tunnel.

Select the client you want to access, and click on the green button ADD TUNNEL. Depending on the operating system, the dialogue is prefilled with defaults you very likely would like to use. For Windows, an RDP tunnel is suggested, and for Linux SSH is used as default. The tunnel will be protected with an access control list that gives access only to your current IP address. This ACL is a second layer of security. Valid login credentials are still required.

By clicking ADD TUNNEL the connection is created instantly. Now click on the LAUNCH TUNNEL icon and your default application for RDP or SSH opens the connection. From now on, use the username and password of the system you already have.

For RDP, a configuration file for the remote desktop client is generated and downloaded. Look at the downloads of your browser and double-click.

RPort does not interfere with the regular log in process of the operating system. A valid user account on the remote machine is always needed.

What are those tunnels?
