Typically, administrators use the rlogin and ssh commands to administer remote systems from the command line. The Solaris Management Console can also be used. In Trusted CDE, the dtappsession program can remotely launch Trusted CDE actions. Starting in the Solaris 10 5/09 release, a virtual networking computer (vnc) can be used to remotely display a multilevel desktop.
The following methods of remote administration are possible in Trusted Extensions:
The root user can log in to a remote host from a terminal. See How to Log In Remotely From the Command Line in Trusted Extensions. This method works as it does on a Solaris system. This method is insecure.
A role can log in to a remote host from a terminal in the role workspace. See How to Log In Remotely From the Command Line in Trusted Extensions.
Administrators can start a Solaris Management Console server that is running on a remote system. See How to Remotely Administer Systems by Using the Solaris Management Console From a Trusted Extensions System.
Actions in the Trusted_Extensions folder can be started remotely by using the dtappsession command. See How to Remotely Administer Trusted Extensions With dtappsession.
A user can log in to a remote multilevel desktop by using a vnc client program to connect to the Xvnc server on a Trusted Extensions system. See How to Use Xvnc to Remotely Access a Trusted Extensions System.
