Use the Users screen on the vCloud Director tenant portal's SSL VPN-Plus tab to add accounts for your remote users to the local authentication server for the edge gateway's SSL VPN service.


If a local authentication server is not already configured, adding a user on the Users screen automatically adds a local authentication server with default values. You can then use the edit button on the Authentication screen to view and edit the default values. For information about using the Authentication screen, see Configure an Authentication Service for SSL VPN-Plus on an Edge Gateway.

For the ability to use the vCloud Director tenant portal to work with an edge gateway's settings, the edge gateway must have already been converted to an advanced edge gateway using the Convert to Advanced Gateway action on the edge gateway in the vCloud Director Web console. See the vCloud Director Administrator's Guide for details.
