Looking for someone to build a tool to allow easy Remote Desktop access to Windows machines.
Proposed solution would allow the following:
User is given a URL. Clicking URL launches a java based client that displays and allows control of the desktop of a windows machine. Only http/https only using port 80/443 may be used. Target machines run Windows and accept RDP connections. A Terminal Services Gateway server is also available to use.
We wish to provide many URLs to many users, allowing these users to connect to their own desktops for the day. One URL would point to one machine.
Ideally this would also work when client is using a proxy server for internet access.
Flash would be acceptable instead of Java.
This cannot require anything other than Java or Flash on the user's end. We do not want to require any software installation for these users.

Many windows desktops are staged for students to access for hands-on labs. Currently we offer access via Remote Desktop, over the internet. This does not work for everyone, since some places block RDP traffic, others block port 3389, and others have proxy server access to the internet only.
We need a solution that gets around this. I envision a URL that launches an applet. The applet opens a temporary http/https tunnel to a server on our end and launches remote desktop or a java version of something similar.
The user logs in to the desktop and works for the day, disconnecting when done.
The key points are that we want it to work over ports 80/443 only since most users have these ports open. Also, if the client's web browsing is via a proxy server, we want to use those settings and attempt to connect via their proxy.
The result should be that when the user hits the URL, they get a maximizable remote desktop window. Assuming the user has java installed.
