Getting started

pinBox is an interesting alternative to a traditional VPN, that’s why we call it “Web VPN“.

pinBox is a Hardware Box which is connectwed to local network. Via internet every PC or terminal server in network can be accessed by a HTML5-compatible browser.

No installation or configuration is required for the accessing user. Access is made encrypted by SSL/https via own certificates or Let’s Encrypt.

pinBox supports 2-factor authentication via email or Google Authenticator. The WakeOnLan feature can turn on a PC before connecting. pinBox supports dynamic DNS services as well as clipboard, upload/download and local printing.

pinBox is perfectly suited for home office workplaces and remote support.
