A SSL VPN is a form of VPN that can be used with a standard web browser. It requires client software installation, and is ideal for applications including web-based email, business and government directories, file sharing, remote backup, remote system management, and consumer-level electronic commerce.

This article will show you how to configure SSL VPN both on the client side and Cloud Edge side.


Cloud Edge Side Configurations

  1. Access Cloud Edge Cloud Console, then go to Gateways > Select Gateway > SSL VPN.
  2. Enable SSL VPN.

    Protocol: Choose a protocol between TCP/UDP.
    Port: Select a port that is not being used by the Cloud Edge appliance.
    Local Networks: LAN segment of Cloud Edge Appliance that will be accessible to SSL VPN clients.
