Suggestions for accessing the admin console on the local lan, from the wan

My job requires travel, and until last week I was able to run the admin console on my company laptop to my ISY. Now, security changes on the laptop have been applied and java will not cooperate and run the admin console any longer. I need to find an alternative method to be able to get to the admin console remotely. Candidates include:

  • RDP to a Windows Server that I decommissioned recently. All I have to do it turn it back on, but prefer not to.
     
  • RDP to one of two W8.1 desktops in the house. This is ok, but I need to not "bump in" to the family using them. 
     
  • RDP to an RPi and run the console. RDP works great to the Pi, but I've seen posts that suggest that the admin console doesn't doesn't work well on the Pi. Would like to hear if someone has it
     
  • Other suggestions?

Thanks

The answer is 'probably'. I don't use any other java apps that I know about. 

 

I think I'm out of luck on running the admin console on this computer, I think I'll try the admin console on the pi this weekend and see how that does, if not, set up a desktop for RDP

Ok, good point. If I use the web link to the admin console on my ISY, it will download it and run it. My browser choices are chrome or ie, and I got it working through ie.

 

In the past I had kept a version of the jnlp on the laptop, which negated the need for the download... that still does not work

 

However this is a workaround and gives me a way in.

 

Thanks!
