Jumpoint: Set Up Unattended Access to a Network

Jump > Jumpoint

Jumpoint Management

Bomgar's Jump Technology enables a user to access computers on a remote network without having to pre-install software on every machine. Simply install a single Jumpoint agent at any network location to gain unattended access to every PC within that network.

Add New Jumpoint, Edit, Delete

Create a new Jumpoint, modify an existing Jumpoint, or remove an existing Jumpoint.

Redeploy

Uninstall an existing Jumpoint and download an installer to replace the existing Jumpoint with a new one. Jump shortcuts associated with the existing Jumpoint will use the new Jumpoint once it is installed.

Note: When an existing Jumpoint is replaced, its configuration is not saved. The new Jumpoint must be reconfigured.

Enable network browsing

At the bottom of the Jumpoint page is the option to Enable network browsing. If checked, a permitted user can view and select systems from the network directory tree. If unchecked, a user can access a system through a Jumpoint only by entering the system's hostname or IP address. Either way, the user must provide valid credentials to the remote system before gaining access.

Disabled

If checked, this Jumpoint is unavailable to make Jump connections.

Clustered

If checked, you will be able to add multiple, redundant nodes of the same Jumpoint on different host systems. This ensures that as long as at least one node remains online, the Jumpoint will be available.

If you want users to be able to connect to SSH-enabled and Telnet-enabled network devices through this Jumpoint, check Enable Shell Jump Access.

Group Policies and Embassies

This displays a listing of the group policies and embassies which allow users access to this Jumpoint.

Allowed Users

Search for users to add to this Jumpoint. Users who are allowed to use this Jumpoint can start sessions with and/or create Jump Items connecting through this Jumpoint, as their permissions allow.

In the table below, view existing Jumpoint users. You can filter the view by entering a string in the Filter Existing Members text box. You can also delete the user from the Jumpoint.

To add a group of users to a Jumpoint, go to Users & Security > Group Policies or Users & Security > Embassy and assign that group to one or more Jumpoints.

Note: You may see some users whose Delete options are disabled. This occurs when a user is added via group policy or embassy.

You can click the group policy or embassy link to modify the policy as a whole. Any changes made to the group policy or embassy apply to all members of that policy.

You also can add the individual to the Jumpoint, overriding their settings as defined elsewhere.
