SSL-VPN: Unable to save username and password on UTM SSL VPN Netextender client
03/26/2020 35 17203
The Netextender SSLVPN client is not saving user credentials in a connection profile for the UTM SSLVPN connection. This feature is convenient so that remote users can launch the Netextender SSLVPN clientapplication in standalone mode, to quickly reconnect to the UTM device for secure remote access.
1. Log into the UTM appliance web management GUI; go to the SSLVPN - Client Settings screen.
2. Change two settings: a) enable "Create Client Connection Profile" and set the option "User Name & Password Caching" to 'Allow saving of user name & password' (see below).
Resolution for SonicOS 6.5
