On the other hand I can indeed picture a situation where hiring more
people would not make a lot of sense. Say a company has a small
subsidiary somewhere, where the local network is very small and needs to
be changed too seldom for a local sysadmin to be busy more than 1% of
the time. I would understand that business not wanting to hire an extra
person. On the other hand the main sysadmin should have an overview of
the entire network, even the one at the remote site, so the extra person
would mean they (the two sysadmins) have to communicate (not that it
would be a problem, but an extra layer where communication could go wrong).
Sure enough they could send the main sysadmin in every now and then and
fix the things on site, but my question is: is there really no safe way
to manage a server and the locally connected clients from remote? I know
you can ssh into it, but is there software that allows you to have a
graphical overview of the network and the software you have installed on
any computer without compromising safety?
