Use a Jump Shortcut to Jump to a Remote System

Once a Jumpoint has been installed on a remote network, permitted users can use the Jumpoint to initiate sessions with Windows computers on that same network, even if those computers are unattended. Additionally, a permitted user can Jump to computers on the same network segment as their local system, even without a Jumpoint.

Through a Jumpoint, Jump shortcuts can be created to start a standard access session, to start a Remote Desktop Protocol session with a Windows system, to Jump to a website on a remote browser, to Shell Jump to an SSH-enabled or Telnet-enabled network device, to connect to a VNC server, or to make a TCP connection through a Protocol Tunnel Jump.

You can add Jump shortcuts one by one from the access console, as detailed in Local Jump Shortcuts, Remote Jump Shortcuts, Remote Desktop Protocol Shortcuts, Virtual Network Computing Shortcuts, Use Web Jump to Access Web Services, Shell Jump Shortcuts, and Protocol Tunnel Jump Shortcuts.

Jump Shortcuts Mass Import Wizard

When creating a large number of Jump shortcuts, it may be easier to import them via a spreadsheet than to add them one by one in the access console. From the dropdown in the Jump Shortcuts Mass Import Wizard section, select the type of Jump Item you wish to add, and then click Download Template. Using the text in the CSV template as column headers, add the information for each Jump shortcut you wish to import. Optional fields can be filled in or left blank.

Once you have completed filling out the template, use Import Jump Shortcuts to upload the CSV file containing the Jump Item information. The maximum file size allowed to be uploaded at one time is 5 MB. Only one type of Jump Item can be included in each CSV file. The CSV file should use the format described in the tables below.
