Connect to intranet remotely RRS feed

  • Question

  • We need one of our users to be able to access an intranet site from his iPhone outside of the plant. 

    In the past, we have used an iphone app called pocket cloud (remote desktop client) to connect to our remote desktop server that users can use to access drives from home, pocket cloud would automatically log into a domain user account, which was set up to automatically open the intranet site once it was logged in. (not set up anymore, would need to be recreated)

    There has to be a better way to do this. we have GeckoBoard if that would help at all. 

    I just need a direction to look. I spent about 15 minutes looking at any sort of way to accomplish this with no progress.

  • Hi Jason,

    The intranet can be accessed from public networks directly if you can publish it over internet by doing port forwarding on your firewall.

    If the intranet cannot be exposed to Internet directly, then on your iphone and android you can ask users to use VPN applications which they can use to dial in to the corporate network and access the intranet.

    But make sure that your VPN concentrator has a supported app or plugin available for iphone and android.
