Remote device access (ssh, telnet, RDP) without VPN - looking for alternatives to tcp proxy

Discussion created by dfis on Mar 24, 2015

I'd like to know what people are using to get access to remote devices when investigating alarms. We would like to right-click on the alarm and connect directly to the device either via RDP, telnet, or ssh (depending on device). Solutions I have seen require agents to be directly connected to the same network as the device. Nimsoft had a useful probe called TCP proxy but it is not really supported and is not reliable. Does UIM support this natively? What alternatives are people using?
