Jumpoint: Set Up Unattended Access to a Network



Jumpoint Management

BeyondTrust's Jump Technology enables a user to access computers on a remote network without having to pre-install software on every machine. Simply install a single Jumpoint agent at any network location to gain unattended access to every PC within that network.

Add New Jumpoint, Edit, Delete

Create a new Jumpoint, modify an existing Jumpoint, or remove an existing Jumpoint.


Uninstall an existing Jumpoint and download an installer to replace the existing Jumpoint with a new one. Jump shortcuts associated with the existing Jumpoint will use the new Jumpoint once it is installed.

When an existing Jumpoint is replaced, its configuration is not saved. The new Jumpoint must be reconfigured.

Enable network browsing

At the bottom of the Jumpoint page is the option to Enable network browsing. If checked, a permitted user can view and select systems from the network directory tree. If unchecked, a user can access a system through a Jumpoint only by entering the system's hostname or IP address. Either way, the user must provide valid credentials to the remote system before gaining access.

Group Policies

This displays a listing of the group policies which allow users access to this Jumpoint.

Allowed Users

New Member Name

Search for users to add to this Jumpoint.  Users must be added to the Jumpoint in order to create Jump Items using that Jumpoint or to initiate ad hoc sessions through that Jumpoint. Users are not required to be added to the Jumpoint to start a session with a pre-existing Jump Item using that Jumpoint, so long as they have access granted through Jump Group membership.

In the table below, view existing Jumpoint users. You can filter the view by entering a string in the Filter by Name text box. You can also delete the user from the Jumpoint.

To add a group of users to a Jumpoint, go to Users & Security > Group Policies and assign that group to one or more Jumpoints.

You may see some users whose Delete options are disabled. This occurs when a user is added via group policy.

You can click the group policy link to modify the policy as a whole. Any changes made to the group policy apply to all members of that policy.

You also can add the individual to the Jumpoint, overriding their settings as defined elsewhere.
