Some quick and easy tools for working with segmented networks/VLANs

by on Oct.24, 2019, under Posts

Network segmentation can be a great tool for security and compliance. VLANing is a great means of achieving this. However, if you have to work on systems that are cut off from one another via this method, VLANs can become a pain. Here are some tools/websites that I use for working around VLANs to get my job done:

  • Portable storage devices, i.e. external hard drives/flash drives – very handy for when you have physical access
  • RMM tools, i.e. screenconnect, teamviewer, gotoassist, logmein, meshcentral, etc.
  • – The internet clipboard
  • Seashells – pipe standard output to this website and get a random link
  • Firefox Send  – You can upload up to 1GB without needing an account
  • Google Drive – May seem silly but when you’re working in a very well locked down networks that do a lot of content filtering, google usually isn’t blocked
  • A public facing personal SSH server
  • An instant messenger where you can message yourself, like Slack 

I hope this quick post helps some others. Feel free to leave comments below.
