About

Adito is an open-source, browser-based SSL VPN solution. It’s a remote access solution that provides users and businesses alike with a means of securely accessing network resources from outside the network perimeter using only a standard web browser.

Background

This is the open-source clone of SSL-Explorer after it went biz-o-matic.

Windows installer (download links below)

My contribution to this project is a Windows-installer, check old version here, if you are looking for the updated SVN-version download here

Please note that the SVN-version is only supported on Java run time 1.8! Older version require Java run time 1.7 or older.

Step-by-step guides

There are now three guides written by me on the topic.

  1. Scroll down on the installer page for installation-tips

  2. Scroll down on this page for a simple demonstration of a port-forward

  3. NEW! Practical RDP guide here

  4. Read the guide on running the Java 7 version 51

What the buzz about?

Pictures says more than words so please take a look in the pictureseries with description below.

You are first presented with a login window:

After successfully logging in you are at the main window

Usally the SSL Tunnel are common used. This technique open a port locally and forward it throught the server and to your destination.

In this example we create a port forwarding on port 4040 locally requests to google.com on port 80 (www-default-port)

Create SSL Tunnel

After the creation we start the Agent. This is the software you run in the remote location straight from the browser. Since it uses default-java you would find access almost everywhere.

My rule is; if you can connect to your bank you can use Adito 😉

Agent launching

When it has launched you got a new little man-like icon in your sys-tray

Agent in systray

By right-clicking on the agent you will find items you have configed on the server. In our case the tunnel “Test” is available

Agent options

When the tunnel is activated the agent notify you and we are ready to use it

Agent SSL Tunnel open

Now for some magic 🙂 Connect to google through your server

Surfing through SSL Tunnel

As you can see this is pretty easy to use and manage a great product!
