.NET Service Bus – Remote Desktop over Firewalls!

Today was holiday in Argentina but I had to work on some pending stuff (yeah, lucky me). I didn’t want to travel to the office but I had to access a SQL Server that was hosted at Southworks LAN and we don’t have inbound ports open to connect to our workstations through RDP (port 3389). So…. the .Net Service Bus came to the rescue! Last week David Aiken told me about this cool project hosted on codeplex http://socketshifter.codeplex.com. He told me “these people are streaming video over the service bus”…

So yesterday before leaving the office I opened up the socketshifter server, configured my service bus account and allowed some ports to be redirected. Today I connected from home and here is a nice screenshot of RDP to a Southworks LAN machine (connected to localhost:1000). Isn’t it cool??!!?!


For those of you who are wondering how these work, the code is reeeeallly simple because all of the hardlifting is made by the service bus. There is a client and a server that will redirect a stream of bytes from port a to port b (using plain sockets). The socket shifter client will establish a session to the server via the service bus using the NetTcpRelayBinding. The rest of the story is bytes flowing around”.
