RPort remote access and remote management

An introduction (live demo with questions and answers) into RPort - a new open-source software for remote access and remote management of heterogeneous it-landscapes. Use the UI, the command line or an REST API to manage servers and desktop efficiently from a central place.

RPort is a comprehensive solution for remote management of servers and desktop systems. Even if they are behind firewalls, routers and NAT. RPort is built on the client-server principle, clients connect to the server, the management component, using a secure reverse tunnel. Unlike pure SSH, RPort is made for heterogeneous environments (Windows, Linux, macOS) and addresses four basic needs of system administrators: • Secure remote access from anywhere via tunnels and SSH/RDP/VNC/HTTP and other TCP connections • Script and command execution on target machines via a central dashboard. • Automation of recurring tasks such as updates, inventory, configuration and fine-tuning of systems. • Monitoring and logging system load and resource usage.

With RPort, a complete IT infrastructure with Windows, Linux and macOS systems can be managed via command line or a convenient web-based, central dashboard. The server component can be self-hosted or deployed in minutes using the automated installer provided by RPort. RPort is released under the MIT open-source license.
