Remote manage anything from your browser.
Ready in minutes.

Manage your entire infrastructure via one easy-to-use dashboard. Servers, routers, IoT devices. Windows, Linux. Behind firewalls.
RPort connects them all securely.

Based on encrypted TCP tunnels

  • A tiny agent is installed on the device to be managed or on an adjacent edge device. Only when required, TCP ports are tunneled to an external fixed IP address.
  • All communications are encrypted.
  • All tunnels are firewall protected. No one but you can see the tunnel.
  • A single agent can access any IP address and TCP port within an intranet. Perfect for IoT devices and appliances where the agent cannot be installed.
  • For security and bandwidth conservation, tunnels are automatically closed when not in use. The agent’s control channel doesn’t consume any significant bandwidth.

Remote access anything

RPort allows you to securely remotely access devices on your intranet via

  • SSH
  • remote desktop
  • RealVNC server or any VNC based access
  • Telnet
  • Web-based user interfaces
  • Any TCP-based protocol can be made accessible, such as SMB (Windows file sharing), network printing, HTTP APIs, web servers

You can use your favourite remote desktop or SSH client, or run everything in your browser. A single control centre manages it all.

Remote commands

  • Execute remote commands directly from the Control Centre without establishing a remote desktop or SSH session.
  • Save commands and scripts for common tasks and share them with colleagues.
  • Execute commands on a single server or multiple servers. In parallel or sequentially.
  • Rport is not an unmanaged backdoor. Fine-grained allow and deny rules allow you to restrict the execution of commands. Filters are maintained on the client and cannot be overridden by the server.

Start now instantly

Launch your own private rport server.

  • You can install it on almost any cheap hardware or with your preferred cloud provider.
  • We have prepared an intuitve and easy to use installer script.

Get your RPort server up and running in no time.

  • The RPort server installs on Linux only. Debian or Ubuntu recommended.
  • The server does not require a database or any other third-party software.
  • Clients are available for Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Secure by design

  • All RPort remote access connections are encrypted. RPort tunnels are based on standard SSH technology and encrypted using AES encryption.
  • Unlike other solutions, RPort delegates remote access authentication to the operating system. You can install RPort completely within your own infrastructure. We don’t have access to your devices, we don’t ask for credentials. Others create a second entrance to your devices. We don’t. We provide the standard access point where you need it.
  • If you don’t want your data to leave your organisation, network or country, we’ve got you covered.
  • We don’t have access to your devices, we don’t ask for credentials. Others build a second gateway to your devices. We don’t. We provide the standard entry point where you need it.

All features explained

Remote Access

  • Access any remote device via a tunneled TCP and/or UDP connection. RDP, SSH and any other protocol is securely available to machines behind routers and firewalls.
  • Any machine with the RPort client installed can act as a bridge, creating tunnels to any other IP address or host. This allows you to easily manage routers, printers, switches or NAS systems within remote networks. No VPN required.
  • Tunnels are protected with Access Control Lists to limit remote access to known IPs and networks.
  • Tunnels for HTTP and HTTPS can be accessed via a new built-in reverse proxy. You will always have valid SSL certificates.
  • RealVNC Connect integration - access RealVNC Connect servers directly with all the VNC Connect functionality including Multi-Factor Authentication, high-speed streaming and audio remoting.
  • NoVnc integration. Access VNC servers directly from your browser.
  • Web RDP Integration. Connect via Remote Desktop directly from your browser without opening external RDP clients.
  • Tunnels and their destinations can be restricted with fine-grained filters.
  • Tunnels can be saved for re-use. Share quick access to devices without the RPort client installed with the team.

Inventory & Access rights

  • The RPort dashboard provides an up-to-date and comprehensive view of your entire inventory.
  • Dynamically organise your machines and devices into logical groups ā€“ and execute scripts on groups of devices
  • Get full details of the running operating system, CPU and memory configuration from the dashboard.
  • Dashboard displays update status and any missing updates for the client. (Windows and Linux supported)
  • Access to clients - scripts, commands and tunnels - can be restricted to specific user groups.
  • Basic monitoring shows CPU and memory usage, all running processes and disk and mount point usage.
  • An audit log allows you to track who did what and when. Trace what command was executed and what the results were.

Commands, Scripts & Files

  • Short commands or complex scripts can be executed directly from the browser without interactive login.
  • Scripts and commands can be saved to a library for reuse or to share with teammates.
  • Run scripts and commands on multiple clients in parallel, with extensive target filtering options.
  • Results of scripts and commands are streamed to the browser as they are executed.
  • On Windows, scripts can be based on any shell or interpreter such as cmd.exe (Batch) or PowerShell. Bash for Windows (CygWin, Git Bash) is also supported.
  • On Unix, shebangs are supported, so Python, Perl or any other interpreter installed on the remote system can be used.
  • With Tacoscripts you can script even complex tasks with playbook-like easy to write Yaml files. Tacoscripts is supported on Windows, macOS and Linux with no dependencies on interpreters such as Pyhton.
  • Central server-side scheduler to run scripts and commands at a specified interval
  • Built-in file copy function, so you can copy a local file from your PC directly to a remote machine.

Vault

  • The RPort database includes an encrypted storage for storing sensitive data such as usernames and passwords.
  • The master passphrase only exists in the memory of the running server. After a server restart, you must manually unlock the vault. This ensures maximum privacy and protection.
  • Enrich a machine’s metadata with any information such as invoice numbers, serial numbers, vendor support hotline and more.
  • Wiki-like pages per remote machine. This allows you to attach documentation directly to a host. Or use it as a log book to share information with the team.

Client installation

  • Clients are available for Linux, Windows, macOS with support for many architectures including ARM and MIPs. Support for microcontrollers (Arduino) on request.
  • RPort consists of a single static binary with no dependencies on external libraries. No Python or other script interpreters are used. This makes RPort suitable for embedded devices.
  • The client can run on routers, switches and IoT devices. (Linux kernel and shell access required)
  • Clients perform auto registration. You can install the client directly on the remote machine without first creating a configuration or unique ID on the server. This makes mass deployment fast and convenient.
  • The server generates pairing codes and ready-to-use installation scripts for Unix shell and Windows PowerShell.

Miscellaneous

  • The RPort server is protected by two-factor authentication. Access to the API and front-end can be secured by two-factor authentication using standard TOTP or tokens sent by email or pushmessage.
  • The server has built-in user management.
  • Authentication can be delegated to a reverse proxy. This allows integration with enterprise authentication portals such as Netscaler, Keycloack (RH-SSO), Caddy Auth Portal or the use of Apache authentication plugins.
  • Token authentication is available for scripting and API client development.
  • Fast and direct login to remote machines via RDP or SSH can be initiated directly from the command line using rportcli.
  • Clients can have a list of fallback servers. This allows you to implement a highly available setup.
  • Use our cloud installer to automatically install the RPort server on all major cloud providers.
  • OAuth based single sign-on (available with RPort Plus)
