Connect to Shieldoo Secure Network


This section describes establishing a secure connection to a server and attached services in Shieldoo Secure Network:

  1. Connect to Servers

Servers are devices to which users or other servers can connect.

Attached Services are devices that run on the local network of a server but on which Shieldoo Secure Network cannot be installed (e.g. a printer). Shieldoo lets you directly connect to such services without connecting to their servers. The admin of Shieldoo Secure Network manages these services.

Connect to Servers

After successfully downloading and installing the Shieldoo client, you can now securely connect to any server in Shieldoo Secure Network enabled by your administrator.

To see the list of available servers, click on the client status icon in the system tray and choose My Access Rights In Shieldoo network.


The other possibility is to go to Connect Me | My Access Rights in Shieldoo web application.


It will show the list of available servers within your Shieldoo Secure Network with information about their names, IP addresses and description. In descriptions, your administrator will tell you how to connect to the server.

  1. Connect to your Shieldoo Secure Network by the client.
  2. Go to the Connect Me | My Access Rights section to see which servers are available to you.
