In network access mode, a remote user can access private networks after downloading and installing an SSL client.

The SSL VPN gateway requires port 443 to be accessible from external networks and the SSL VPN client requires the NSX Edge gateway IP and port 443 to be reachable from client system.

1

You must add SSL VPN server settings to enable SSL on a NSX Edge interface.

2

The remote user is assigned a virtual IP address from the IP pool that you add.

3

Add the network that you want the remote user to be able to access.

4

Instead of a local user, you can add an external authentication server (AD, LDAP, Radius, or RSA) which is bound to the SSL gateway. All users with accounts on the bound authentication server will be authenticated.

5

Create an installation package of the SSL VPN-Plus client for the remote user.

6

Add a remote user to the local database.

7

After configuring the SSL VPN-Plus service, enable the service for remote users to begin accessing private networks.

8

You can add multiple login or logoff scripts. For example, you can bind a login script for starting Internet Explorer with gmail.com. When the remote user logs in to the SSL client, Internet Explorer opens up gmail.com.
