SSH Tectia

Remote Access through Nested Tunnels

SSH Tectia Connector can be used to access SSH Tectia Servers on the corporate intranet from a remote location through nested tunnels. The first tunnel ends at the edge of the corporate intranet, and nested tunnels within the first tunnel continue to SSH Tectia Servers located inside the intranet. Only one port needs to be open in the firewall. It is also possible to chain the nested tunnels within the intranet if necessary.

This helps to achieve end-to-end security without using NAT and a private IP inside the corporate network. See Figure 5.7.
