Cybele Software has released ThinVNC Remote Access Server, a tool that acts as a single access point on a corporate network for remote access to any PC, allowing workers to reach their PC remotely, even if it is switched off.
Available to download now, ThinVNC Remote Access Server 1.0 is a public beta release, according to Cybele.
It is designed to work with the firm's ThinVNC host software, which enables a worker to remotely view their computer desktop using any computer or device with a HTML5-compliant web browser as the endpoint.
ThinVNC Remote Access Server provides a single gateway onto a corporate network, through which administrators can manage users and assign the PCs to which they can gain access, the firm said.
The software, which runs on a Windows PC or server, creates a tunnel for ThinVNC traffic over HTTP/WebSockets and SSL, enabling secure access to any PC through just one public IP address.
Users pointing a browser at this IP address are presented with a list of PCs they are allowed to access, once they have signed in with their credentials.
Even if the target PC is turned off, users can remotely boot it using ThinVNC Remote Access Server to send a Wake-On-LAN packet over the network.
ThinVNC Remote Access Server requires a copy of ThinVNC to be installed on each PC that will be accessed remotely. The latter is licensed at $20 (£12.65) per seat for one to 10 seats, with discounts for larger numbers of licences.
