Just a short note, nothing spectacular today.

After many years of customers asking, complaining and debating, SAP finally supports SSH for remote access to customer systems.

Even more also VNC connections are finally available for the support of non-Windows-OS-GUIs.

All details on these new remote connection types can be found in these SAP support notes:

  • 1275351 – SSH-Connection to customer systems
  • 1327257 – VNC-Connection to customer systems

Be gone the times where customers had to build up complicated bypasses by setting up a WTS server remote connection to a Windows server from which the support person finally could call up a SSH client.

Thanks network people – thanks a lot!

    Hi,

    thanks for the notice.

    do you have an insight on why there had been such limitations? Are there any technical reasons that had to be resolved?

    Regards

      Unfortunately I’m not sure about the reasons why this took so long but I assume that it wasn’t technical reasons.
      Instead I remember to have heard once that it was due to license issue for SSH connections – but I’m really not sure on that (so don’t cite me 😉

      regards,
      Lars

      AFAIK the problem was not licenses but technical.
      When you open a ssh connection is open in both directions and SAP wanted to avoid that. Probably not easy.
