Product Overview

Access Over a Browser

With HOBLink WebTerm RDP you can access a remote desktop server or workstation PC over an SSL-encrypted connection from a browser, after successful authorization, of course.

HOBLink WebTerm RDP – Functional Principles

When someone wants to use HOBLink WebTerm RDP, he or she need not install anything on the local (client) computer, nor are administrator rights required. HOBLink WebTerm RDP is a platform-independent, browser-based solution. All you need on the client device is an HTML5-capable web browser.

You simply enter your company’s HOB RD VPN web address into the browser, authenticate yourself and receive your specific settings. With a click of the mouse, the remote desktop session with HOBLink WebTerm RDP is started. You can now work with your remote desktop session in the browser.

For you, this means you can access in-house remote desktops from Windows, Linux or Mac client devices and work quickly and efficiently with your remote desktop applications from various devices, such as a PC, laptop or tablet.

Authentication and Encryption

This access is protected by strong authentication and authorization via LDAP, Kerberos and a roles and rights system. HOB RD VPN uses SSL encryption. HOB SSL supports all current encryption algorithms, including AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with key lengths up to 256 bits. This way, your communications and exchanged data are continuously protected from unauthorized access.

Access to Remote Desktop Workstations

HOBLink WebTerm RDP provides you with access to workstations running Windows Vista to Windows 8.1 or Windows Server with Remote Desktop Services. HOB Desktop-on-Demand, which allows you to remotely boot the device to be accessed via Wake-on-LAN, is also supported. The access to Macs or Linux desktops also gives you many opportunities to work with a familiar environment.

For remote access to Macs via HOBLink WebTerm RDP, there is the optional solution HOB MacGate. When HOB MacGate  is installed on a Mac, you can access that device over the highly performant RDP protocol.

Access to Linux Computers

If you want to use HOBLink WebTerm RDP to access a Linux machine, HOB has the solution: HOB X11Gate. HOB X11Gate converts the X11 or X-Windows protocol into RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol).
