For some on-site work they’ll just dump a windows laptop with TeamViewer >(henceforth, “TV”) and that’s my entry point to a network.  Both work well, the TV is sometimes a bit clunky because it can be laggy and it’s windows (blessing for things that >need windows tools, curse otherwise).  It also craps out if I break the network, as I can then no longer reach the TV laptop.  Of note, TV is handy in that it “reaches out” to a >proxy rather than relying on me punching holes in to reach it.

I would suggest you have for example to prod boxes access with
security like SSH, Then you can use term to login to the systems.
Though It might not be permitted directly. You can always use an what
is called an Jump Box to log to your PROD Environment.
I would Suggest if Graphics(UNIX might be but Linux for Sure) use VNC
similar to TV. Also Once I had worked at work to create
a Graphical Interface for Solaris Using Cygwin on Windows. You can
infact have an entire screen look like as though it is an
Solaris Local Box.
