I know this topic is all the buzz right now..
Currently we are having our users remotely access their internal computers by using secured laptops as "dumb terminals" as they establish an SSLVPN connection to our firewall/security appliance and then RDP from said laptop into their workstation. It works ok but the user experience is clunky with multiple logins and we have had various issues/concerns and hope to eventually get something in place that works better.
I was looking at Citrix and VMware Horizon 7 and they have some "remote to PC" options that are included with each of their main packages. It would obviously be a waste to purchase an expensive product for the purpose of using one single side-feature that lets remote users access their internal company computers. So I wanted to see if you guys could provide any suggestions.
I understand there may be a lot of resistance here against a lot of these products since they are big and expensive and may not be wise business choices, but I am trying to work with what I have and what I know and I know that I don't know much..
If anyone can point to a product/service/mixture of technologies that would help users directly connect to their internal computers while providing a simple and solid user experience, that would be a huge help.
ZeroTier (with Flow rules) + RDP is how I solved this for my clients.
Thanks Jared, I will check that out now. Do you have any sort of latency issues or anything or is it pretty snappy through and through?
It is point to point, so as fast as the network segments can be
Gravy. I'm assuming you're referring to zerotier.com?
Yes. See this recent thread for flow rules.
