In many network environments, various Mobile Device Management (MDM) tools are used to manage the applications installed on Apple Macintosh computers. When pushing Connect Tunnel to these computers, there is normally no configuration pushed with that installation. The result is the user has to enter the IP address or FQDN for the SMA server and then also select or enter the Realm when they first run the Connect Tunnel client.
This configuration information is stored on the Macintosh in a file named profiles.xml.
This is a text file located at ~/Library/Application Support/SonicWALL/AventailConnect/Config/profiles.xml
With the proper profiles.xml file, the MDM can push this profile to the correct location after installing Connect Tunnel. Then when the user first runs Connect Tunnel their access to the SMA is already configured and they need only log in.
