Using DxConnect with Linux DxOdyssey Installations

Applies to…

  • DxOdyssey 19.5 and newer

Summary

DxConnect clients can connect to tunnels via Linux DxOdyssey installations. DxCli must be used to configure a tunnel and the DxConnect client.

Information

  1. Configure a tunnel to access a target by executing “dxcli add-tunnel”.
    • dxcli add-tunnel < tunnel_name > < enabled_status > < destination_gateway > < destination_address >:< port > < origin_gateway >/< origin_address >:< port >[/< source_filter_name >] [< tunnel_group_name >]
    • An example tunnel for connecting to a Windows VM via RDP:
      dxcli add-tunnel rdp_tunnel true linux_01 10.1.201.190:3389 linux_02/0.0.0.0:25001
  2. Create a client by executing “dxcli add-client”.
    • dxcli add-client < client_name > < client_password >
    • An example:
      dxcli add-client client1 Passw0rd
  3. Add the client to the tunnel by executing “dxcli update-tunnel-clients”. Assign the client an IP address and port combination to connect to the tunnel.
    • dxcli update-tunnel-clients < tunnel_name > < client_name >:< listener_ip >:< port >
    • An example:
      dxcli update-tunnel-cients tunnel1 client1:127.0.0.1:30000
  4. Export the DxConnect config by executing “dxcli export-config rdp.dh2i”.
  5. Transfer the .dh2i file to any client machine running DxConnect, launch the application, and access the tunnel using the IP address and port assigned to the client.
