ClairVoyanT SysAdmin is a tool that allows a user to run commands on his Linux box even if he is far from his it. CVTSA works as a shell but receives commands via email. There are some security features that make CVTSA quite safe.
Conspy allows a (possibly remote) user to see what is displayed on a Linux virtual console, and send keystrokes to it. It is rather like VNC, but where VNC takes control of a GUI conspy takes control of a text mode virtual console. Unlike VNC, conspy does not require a server to be installed prior to being used.
DisplayCast is a high performance screen sharing system for Intranets.
GEXEC is a scalable cluster remote execution system which provides fast, RSA authenticated remote execution of parallel and distributed jobs. It provides transparent forwarding of stdin, stdout, stderr, and signals to and from remote processes, provides local environment propagation, and is designed to be robust and to scale to systems over 1000 nodes.
KDE Universal Remote Desktop has the goal of becoming an extendable remote desktop control client frontend.
KVpnc is a KDE Desktop Environment frontend for various vpn clients. It supports Cisco VPN (vpnc), IPSec (FreeS/WAN , Openswan, strongSwan, racoon), PPTP (pptpclient), OpenVPN, L2TP (FreeS/WAN, Openswan, strongSwan, racoon) and smartcardcard support (OpenVPN, strongSwan).
Lando is a command execution system for UNIX. It allows you to create a set of commands which may be executed from another machine on your LAN without actually having to log in via a telnet session. The output of the command (if any) is returned to the client for display in a window.
Monocaffe Connections Manager
Monocaffe Connections Manager is a set of tools to ease the management of several servers. It's aimed at network or system administrators who need to connect every day to different servers by different means.
NTR Service Desk
(commercial) NTR Service Desk for Linux provides secure remote access to a PC or Mac. NTRconnect Free offers access to email, files, and folders on up to two computers. NTRconnect Pro is a complete remote access solution for taking full control of any remote computer and transferring files easily between your local and remote computers. NTR Service Desk Pro features file transfer, keycard security, Wake-on-LAN, and keyboard, mouse, and screen blocking. All communication is encrypted using the Rijndael 256-bit algorithm.
Ostiary is designed to allow you to run a fixed set of commands remotely, without giving everyone else access to the same commands. It is designed to do exactly and only what is necessary for this, and no more.
pxdmcp is a standalone XDMCP client that can be used to request a remote X Display Manager (such as XDM, GDM, or CDE Dtlogin) to take control and manage an X server display. This is essentially the same as what an X server does when started with the "-query" option, but using a standalone client can be useful in certain circumstances when you don't have complete control over how the X server is started.
Python Wrappers for Remote Access Tools
A set of wrappers that can be used for accessing remote hosts. The wrappers are written in Python and use ssh and scp style programs for the remote shell and file system access.
Rex is a tool to ease the execution of commands on multiple remote servers.
Remote Login allows a user to login into his computer across a network and access it's resources. It is built on TCP/IP and hence will work on any network that supports TCP/IP.
Salt is a powerful remote execution manager that can be used to administer servers in a fast and efficient way. Salt allows commands to be executed across large groups of servers. This means systems can be easily managed, but data can also be easily gathered. Quick introspection into running systems becomes a reality.
Secure Back Door
Secure Back Door (SBD) is a tool that provides ultra-secure and minimal access to a computer, which allows you to run a single command based on a one time key. It is good if you don't want to have an SSH server running all the time, and only want to start it when needed. Because it is written in only a few lines of code, it is hoped that it will be less susceptible to security exploits than a program like SSH.
shmux is a program for executing the same command on many hosts in parallel. For each target, a child process is spawned by shmux, and a shell on the target obtained one of the supported methods: rsh, ssh, or sh. The output produced by the children is received by shmux and either (optionally) output in turn to the user using an easy to read format, or written to files for later processing making it well suited for use in scripts.
SynCE provides a means of communication with a Windows CE or Pocket PC device from a computer running Linux, *BSD or other unices.
(commercial) ThinLinc is a fast and versatile terminal server system. It is based on open protocols such as TightVNC and SSH. The ThinLinc server software runs on Linux or Solaris, and can be used to distribute Linux/Unix desktops to thin clients. The system also supports additional application servers, such as Windows Terminal Server. This makes it possible to mix applications from different environments on the same desktop. ThinLinc supports redirection of sound, local printers, disk drives, and serial ports, on top of SSH. Clients for Windows, Linux, and Solaris are available. Additionally, there is a Java Browser Client, a small OS designed to run only the client (TLCOS) and a LiveCD. Client packages for several thin terminals, such as Fujitsu-Siemens Futro, Neoware, and VXL Itona, are also available.
UnifiedSessionsManager is a unified and simplified interface for the use and management of local and remote sessions on physical and virtual machines.
Window Switch is a tool which allows you to display running applications on other computers than the one you start them on. Once an application has been started via a winswitch server, it can be displayed on other machines running winswitch client, as required.
x2go is a fast terminal server suite based on NoMachine's NX libraries. Read more
X Persistent Remote Applications (xpra) is "screen for X". It lets you run applications remotely (like ordinary X or VNC), but unlike ordinary X, these applications are "persistent" if you lose your connection, or even if you want to switch to another computer. Also unlike VNC, they are ordinary applications on your desktop managed by your window manager, not trapped in a box. Read more
