Selecting a remote client

For most systems that you add to the privilege access service, you can log on and perform remote operations through secure shell (SSH) or remote desktop (RDP) sessions. There are different client options available for connecting to a target system. The options available depend on the operating system of the target computer, the clients supported by the operating system you are using to connect to the target computer, and your user preferences.

You can access remote systems in the following ways:

  • Using the default web-based client to remote access a system.
  • Using Direct RDP or SSH to access a remote system.
  • Using a native Windows client with the Remote Access Kit.

For details about working with different clients, see the following topics.
