Connect to the remote computer via VNC (Example)
In this example we will be using three different computers A, B (JUMP BOX Computer) and C. Computer A is your computer and computers B and C are in another network in another location. Computer B will serve as a Jumpbox for establishing a VNC connection from computer A to computer C.
Step 1 (Computer A)
Connect to computer B with ISL Light.
Open up "Desktop Sharing" select "Connect via..." and click on "New Tunnel".
Configure the tunnel options. The following options should be configured:
- remote addr: Enter the IP of computer to which you wish to connect with VNC (in our case computer C).
- remote port: Port on which the remote computer is listening for incoming connection. VNC on computer C is listening on port 5900.
local addr: Define which computers can use the tunnel. You have the following two options:
- any: any computer in the same network as computer A can use the tunnel
- localhost: only computer A can use the tunnel
- local port: Port on the local computer to which the tunnel will bind. Tunnel is thus created between local port on computer A and remote port on computer C.
Confirm in the Chat that ISL Light started listening on the configured port (8888 in our case).
Open the VNC Viewer and connect to localhost:8888. Connection will be tunneled to computer C.
Enter the VNC connection password for computer C.
You are now connected to computer C via VNC that is being tunneled via ISL Online.
