Using Hyperglance you can connect to devices via SSH, RDP, Telnet or VNC without leaving your browser! There are no plugins or clients to install either.

This is achieved using an Apache Guacamole server which is bundled with the Hyperglance appliance.


To connect to a node first select to bring up its dashboard panel and then select the ‘CONNECT’ tab:



In the tab we have the following items:

 

Hosts

Hyperglance will list all available IP addresses and DNS names associated with this device. Just select an appropriate IP or DNS name from the dropdown list.
