Benchmate CMMS can run as a web application through your Windows Internet Explorer® over low, voice bandwidth phone lines using Terminal Services Advanced Client – a free Microsoft program. Using TSAC, administrators can publish Benchmate CMMS via a Web page.
TSAC is a high-encryption, RDP 5.0 client and uses RSA Security’s RC4 cipher with a key strength of 40-, 56-, or 128-bit as determined by the server it is connecting to. TSAC uses the well-known RDP TCP port (3389) to communicate to the server. Unlike some other display protocols, which send data over the network using clear text or with an easily decodable ‘scrambling’ algorithm, TSACs built-in encryption makes it safe to use over any network, including the Internet, as the protocol cannot be easily sniffed to discover passwords and other sensitive data.
