This tool should be a part of any self-respecting SysAdmin’s toolkit. mRemote is “a full-featured, open source, multi-tab remote connections manager”.
What does this mean?, you say. It means you’ve got one neat console where you can manage all your remote connections in one place. mRemote currently supports these protocols:
- RDP (Remote Desktop)
- VNC (Virtual Network Computing)
- ICA (Independent Computing Architecture)
- SSH (Secure Shell)
- Telnet (TELecommunication NETwork)
- HTTP/S (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)
- Rlogin (Rlogin)
I haven’t set it up fully yet, but it will be really handy to have all my web-based admin areas and SSH to Linux boxes in there too.
A side note, it uses the same rendering engine as Firefox, so some web-based admin pages may not display properly. This, however is no fault of mRemote or Firefox’s.
