ServerLink RemoteWork
How it works and setup guides...

Adrian and Megan work from home. Both connect back to their own Workstation respectively via the ServerLink RemoteWork Connection Broker with just a WEB Browser.

Then login to the office network as usual as in the office. 
Both of them enjoy the same working PC interface as they are in the office. Same application, same Files and Folders in the workstation, or in server.

REQUIREMENTS ON THE “SERVER” SITE
 

  • Connection Broker System – The “Connection Broker” can be installed on any Windows system (Windows server 2008 - 2019 any edition or Windows 10 Professional in our Company Network)

  • The “Connection Broker” is usually installed nearby your ISP’s Router. A NAT (Network Address Translation) rule will redirect the HTTP and/or the HTTPS ports  (default value is port 80/443) from the external IP to the LAN IP of your “Connection Broker”. Doing so, your “Connection Broker” is the only system exposed to the Internet.

  • Alternatively, VPN is highly recommended for a private and secure connection.

  • For your remote access from the Internet, you will use your fixed IP address to access your ServerLink Remote Work Connection Broker.  However, if you do not have such fix address, you can use a dynamic DNS service such as DynDNS.org or NO-IP.org or ...

  • Another secure method is, use Firewall VPN, Router VPN or Software VPN (Learn more software VPN).
