No more CeBIT. Sounds strange, right? Well, actually it didn’t come as a surprise, we have all seen CeBIT fade away into a shadow of itself during the last ten years, but nevertheless, it’s not easy to grasp the idea that the once king in the worldwide tech landscape is dead.
Here, at ISL Online, CeBIT brings up a lot of good memories, so it made us reminisce about our beginnings and look back at the history of remote desktop. Looking at social media, it seems we’re not the only one to be somewhat sad to see CeBIT go. On Twitter, you’ll find long threads of posts reliving the best CeBIT moments under hashtags #CebitMemories and #Cebit.
ISL Online’s tunnelling technology is a powerful feature which, besides giving you the possibility to establish a secure RDP connection to a Windows computer in a remote network, also provides you with a few other advantages. You can create a jump box to a remote system or allow local users to access a remote computer through your own computer.
In our previous post, we have covered detailed instructions on how to configure the tunnel and then start an RDP connection via ISL Online (read the blog). Once you have done that you can try out the advanced use cases we present below.
USE CASE 1: Connect to a remote system through a jump box
In this scenario, you install the ISL AlwaysOn remote agent on only one computer in the remote network. This computer serves as a jump box through which you can then connect to any other computer in the same remote network.
Route it via ISL Online remote desktop software! The latest ISL Light allows you to use RDP access to Windows computers running in the remote network without VPN tunneling or making any firewall changes. Instead, you can now route the protocol through the ISL Online safe tunnel.
ISL Online has been listed as a leading product in the latest PC Pro review of remote support software, earning 5 out of 5 starts and receiving the “ITPro Editor’s Choice” badge.
