I need a proxy and/or VNC client solution


I was going to use OpenVPN as a proxy but then found out that my company will not enable there current VPN to do split tunneling so the routing table change is being blocked. So now I am back to the drawing board and I do not know all of the proxy solutions out there so I figured I would post and see what other people are using. Currently I am thinking about using Dante a socks v5 proxy because it somewhat resembles OpenVPN but does not have encryption and is not as application friendly. Which brings me to my other issue... is there a VNC client that supports connections through a Sock v5 proxy?

My restrictions are:
Must use SLES 10 or 11
authentication is a big +

Thanks

not sure exactly what you are trying to do, but I use ssh to forward VNC ports using putty. Works quite nicely and provides a good level of security.

Since I'm not really sure what you're looking for, I thought I would jab into the darkness to see if I could be helpful. If not, please consider the following:

Is this just for you, or a bunch of people? What is their level of expertise?
What are you trying to proxy?
Why?

All these things will help us figure out what you're looking for!

Consider nomachine maybe using ssh.


Might see barracudadrive or even acrobat.com

I agree dunno what is the actual use of your agenda.

Florian, thanks for your input. You are right I was not very clear on what I want to do.

This is for a few hundred people so it needs to be simple, hence why OpenVPN would have been great since all persons know how to VPN already. Yes, I have already wrinten a script that uses putty and real vnc. I wanted something simpler, maybe I am asking to much, and I do not want to go and install a new server service on every machine VNC so need an update... ugh.

Please continue with suggestions.

Thanks.

tightvnc's -via option might work. it again uses ssh, but it won't have to be installed on all of the servers, just a gateway.

Would this work for clients using windows using vnc viewer?
