Step 4: Testing Your SSL-VPN Connection
Now you have configured your SonicWall UTM appliance and SonicWall SSLVPN appliance for secure SSL VPN remote access. This section provides instructions to verify your SSL-VPN connection using a remote client on the WAN.
1. From a WAN connection outside of your corporate network, launch a Web browser and enter the following:
Note:It will be easier for your remote users to access the SonicWall SSL-VPN appliance using an FQDN (fully qualified domain name) rather than an IP address.
For example, browsing to "https://www.sonicwall.com" is simpler than browsing to "http://184.108.40.206". It is therefore recommended, if you have not already done so, that you create a DNS record to allow for FQDN access to your SonicWall SSL-VPN appliance. If you do not manage your own public DNS servers, contact your Internet
Service Provider for assistance.
For configurations where your ISP provides dynamic IP addressing rather than a static IP address, refer to the steps in "Configuring Dynamic DNS" on page 51 to set up DDNS for your remote users.
2. When prompted, enter the User Name and Password. 3. Select LocalDomain from the drop-down menu and click the Login button. The SonicWall Virtual Office screen appears in your Web browser. 4. Click NetExtender to start the NetExtender client installation. 5. Click the NetExtender button and complete the client installation. When complete, the following message is displayed: 6. Ping a host on your corporate LAN to verify your SSL-VPN remote connection.
