[VPN] Re: Easy VPN setup for remote users
One way to make encrypted VNC connections that doesn't
require an open TCP port is to use EchoVNC alongside your VNC
Server. EchoVNC lets you make a "firewall friendly" connection
using a relay server that you own and control (e.g., running on
your public Linux server). Data content is secured with 128-bit
AES via the OpenSSL toolkit, and it works with any flavor of VNC.
More info here:
For remote users who are not allowed to install their own
programs, try using EchoWinVNC. It's a zero-install "single click"
version of VNC that you can easily customize to connect to your
relay server, and even display your own splash-screen.
