It seems like SSL VPN's are going to be the way of the future for the following reasins
1) SSL vpns dont require any config on the client side
2) NO nonsense of opening outbound ports on firewals since ssl is almost always open

I wish ISA2004 had ssl vpn capbilty

Thanks

Zubin

Hi Zubin,

OWA is an SSL VPN. And there are plug in's that enable full file share and server access controls via the OWA connection.

HTH,
Tom

Hi Tom

Let me first just say that you do an AWESOME job on the message boards. Ive used this board several times and have got awnsers.

On OWA - You mean "Outlook Web Access"?
I was talking more in terms of functionality of the F5 Firepass, Netsceen SA boxes. You login via SSL and you look at your IPconfig, and you see that you actually get a new ip address on the remote lan. Then one can use any protocol to access resources on the lan.

OWA to me is more of a "publishing" feature, isnt it?

Thanks

Zubin

Hi Zubin,

I looked at the F5 product and they tout a PPP/SSL feature, which sounds interesting.

But, the application specific plug ins they have work the same as those for the OWA and non-OWA plug ins. This is what they generally means by SSL VPN -- application specific access, access control over the applicaton, and no client to install (which is rarely true, its just that the client is installed in the background as a browser helper).

Thanks!
Tom

Tom,

You mention that there are plugins for the OWA connection which allow full file share & server access control (using SSL VPN's).

Can you point me to them &/or an article on how to configure this?

Thanks,

John

I know this thread is already dead, but was looking for the same information (about the plugins). Any one can help?

Thanks,

Hi Zubin,

OH! Yes, IP over SSL would indeed be a VERY cool thing. Yes, I agree!

Thanks!

Hey guys,

Check out Office Anywhere (I think that's they name) from Anywherenetworks.

HTH,

Just an FYI about the add-ons Dr. Shinder was mentioning...you can find them here:

http://www.everywherenetworks.net

Not quite as good as an SSL VPN solution, but still a decent product.

Hi guys,

check out the Citrix Access Gateway (former NET6 product) for an interesting SSL VPN solution. Seems quite good!
 
BTW --- I hope that Microsoft will come out soon with a good and secure RDP proxy component for ISA server (RDP over HTTPS) . If not, they will loose the market...
 
HTH,
Stefaan

Hi Stefaan,

Agreed. They need to stop working on their current remote access VPN server and gateway solution. Its great as it is and they can leave it that way (OK, fix some of the stability issues, but as it is, its great). Then start working, as FAST AS POSSIBLE, on an SSL VPN solution. They're far behind on this issue, and they're going to be behind the curve on outbound SSL bridging too. I just noticed that BlueCoat is going to support outbound SSL bridging, which is something the ISA firewall could have lead the way for :(  If they don't do it soon, they'll lose that market too.

Thanks!
Tom
