Security How To

Checking Out Remote Desktop

Use the Logout link located in the extreme upper right hand corner of the screen to logout as Super User. Now log back in as the ordinary user we created during the installation (ex. John Smith). Once logged in, you should see a list of shortcuts referred to as My Favorites on the screen, which represent the applications that we set up (Figure 19).

This screen shown in Figure 19 is what most normal users would see on a daily basis when using SSL Explorer. Select the TightVNC connection link that we just created from the Favorites list. SSL Explorer will then launch the Java VPN client, set up a tunnel and execute the TightVNC client in an effort to connect to our PC desktop. If all is successful then you should see a TightVNC authentication dialog box asking for the TightVNC password that you set up (Figure 20).

Once you have successfully authenticated, you will be presented with a remote desktop for your PC. See Figure 21 for an example.

Once again, there is a great Flash demo on 3SP's site that walks you through many aspects of setting up remote administration. Even though the demo uses SSL Explorer's built-in RDP client instead of TightVNC, many of the other aspects of remote administration are the same. You can obtain further documentation on how to use TightVNC from tightvnc.com.
