Hi @Adam, @sitz,
For example, I use OVD to allow access to inside VM’s that are hosted on the same LAN as the AD and SMB servers.
In this way, I have allowed access to users that are outside of the office to have access to their desktop over browser.
This can be achieved from every device with HTML5 browser.
The user does not even need to have a computer with them. They can go to any internet cafe and access their workstation from the office and work as they were in the office (It happened to one user that was in vacation in another country)
Another great advantage is that you can have a setup like the following (this is implemented in another office)
I could not yet reproduce it with NS because of TFTP and NFS issues
1 physical server with Virtual machines: windows Terminal server, OVD server. SMB storage and PXE services.
The Lan accepts any machine to be plugged in and boot over PXE bare-metal without SO.
The booted image only allows the user a web browser to be used and nothing more
HTTP and HTTPS are allowed.
This way the office has expanded with hardware because we only placed in blank computers without HDD (and old ones without SO).
So this are some examples of what you can do with GUAC or OVD.
PS. This is also a good DRP
