How can I install SSL VPN?
Clientless SSL VPN (WebVPN) allows for limited but valuable secure access to the corporate network from any location. Users can achieve secure browser-based access to corporate resources at anytime. This document provides a straightforward configuration for the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) 5500 series to allow Clientless SSL VPN access to internal network resources. The SSL VPN technology can be utilized in three ways: Clientless SSL VPN, Thin-Client SSL VPN (Port Forwarding), and SSL VPN Client (SVC Tunnel Mode). Each has its own advantages and unique access to resources.
Clientless SSL VPN
A remote client needs only an SSL-enabled web browser to access http- or https-enabled web servers on the corporate LAN. Access is also available to browse for Windows files with the Common Internet File System (CIFS). A good example of http access is the Outlook Web Access (OWA) client.
Thin-Client SSL VPN (Port Forwarding)
A remote client must download a small, Java-based applet for secure access of TCP applications that use static port numbers. UDP is not supported. Examples include access to POP3, SMTP, IMAP, SSH, and Telnet. The user needs local administrative privileges because changes are made to files on the local machine. This method of SSL VPN does not work with applications that use dynamic port assignments, for example, several FTP applications.
The SPE is meant for service preivdors, as is reflected in its subscription licensing model, isn’t it? Most healthcare customers, and certainly the ones that this white paper is aimed at, are individual health care preivdors hospitals and such. Who’d be running vGW on their own VMWare infrastructure.I think the idea of having the option of a virtual SSL VPN gateway for enterprise customers is a great one. Just that, right now, that doesn’t seem available.Am I missing something?
