Hi Gobi,

You may provide him VPN access and its the most secure way, if thats not available then give him "TeamViewer" www.teamviewer.com or VNC.

...or they can simply login with ssh with X-forwarding enabled and use an X server like Xming for Windows.

Re: Access hp-ux from other country to local host

Ignoring the security issues, HP-UX can be accessed using telnet, rlogin or ssh. HP-UX is not like Windows -- the primary interface is character mode. If the partner is not familiar with HP-UX and shell commands, I would be quite concerned about allowing access.

Even worse is if the partner must have Xwindow access which is an add-on for HP-UX. Xwindows is extremely vulnerable and should never be allowed as an access method unless a VPN is used.

Shalom,

ssh -X hostname

You can add a program for X or terminal emulation.

Why ssh? Because authentication and data stream are encrypted.

I commonly use this to access systems halfway across the world.

Re: Access hp-ux from other country to local host

If the connection is slow, use VNC with ssh tunneling instead of X-forwarding, VNC is much more faster than pure X. I always use it to my home boxes as my home connection isn't very fast. With ssh tunneling I can encrypt the data flow and get into the firewall on port 22.
