Does anyone know of any web-based VPN software I can use to get 'internal' access to web services on my internal network. I use Hamachi normally when away from home however some place (Like work) with the ports blocked Hamachi wont work.

I just want to be able to access web pages on the internal network.

Its a long shot but ideally I am wanting something that will run in IIS. Something that runs on Apache would be OK too but less ideal.

I also use Log Me In for remote access however again this does not work for everywhere (Some places wont let you install the Active X control for it).

I could use VNC, but unless I pay for it its not a very secure option and as this is a kind of stop-gap measure I dont really want to pay for anything.

I've heard that corkscrew may work with what you are doing...

Is there any reason that this has to be VPN based?

Would a self-signed certificate running on an SSL based website with an access username and password work for you?   (This is on the assumption that all you really need to do is see some webpages from your internal network.)

The self signed cert would potentially cause issues on some locked down browsers, but should mostly prove to give a warning and requiring a decision to be made whether you continue.

SSL means that the data is encrypted from the desktop back to your server - that *should* include the username and password (recall that username and password on normal http pages is sent plain text - and often available within the logfiles.  Scripting languages should also have the ability to use that information too.)

If you can't get to the pages this way, you'd think that getting access is going to prove difficult.  

Hope that helps!

I want to be able to open a webpage (SSL if possible), log in, then be abe to browse my intranet as if I was sitting at a PC on the internal network.

A self-signed certificate is fine, its only me going to be using it. How can I make this all work with IIS on Server 2003?

I think you will be paying dearly for a browser-based SSL VPN solution... Interesting Hamachi is blocked - it requires a lot to actually block Hamachi...

Logmein Hamachii works here behind our work firewall and proxies... trust me, our system admins here are control freak... and yet, it (Hamachii) gets out there fine.




Internet is my backyard...

Think I found something that might be a go:
http://www.sshtools.com/showSslExplorerCommunity.do

I like a solution like this as well as Hamachi as it allows me to get access even if I am not at one of my machines with Hamachi installed.

Might give it a go now

Well it's installed and kind of working. Everything is Java based which gets messy. Keeps telling me 'Sync Failed' when I try and connect to a resource :(
