We utilize SecureLink Enterprise to provide remote access to our vendors that support some of our servers. It’s a great solution that’s very cost effective and has worked very well. We probably have 200+ servers with the SecureLink Gatekeeper software installed. The solution utilizes a Java applet to provide a secure SSH tunnel via the web browser over which FTP Services, Desktop Sharing (Remote Desktop and VNC), Power Prompt and any number of customizable applications can run. It’s very easy to setup and provides two factor authentication utilizing the vendors email address along with a username and password combination.
We recently received a warning from SecureLink regarding the recent release of Java 6 Update 26;
There is a compatibility issue with the upgrade process from any previous version to Java 6 update 26 because of changes to some Java system files. Symptoms include connection errors, disappearing java applet window, session disconnects and java system errors. This issue occurs for both SecureLink Users and SecureLink Enterprise Vendor Representatives. SecureLink Users and SecureLink Enterprise Vendors can work around this problem by uninstalling and then manually re-installing Java or by rejecting Java 6 update 26.
