NetExtender/Mobile Connect is a Secure Mobile Access client for Windows, Mac, Linux, or Android smart phone users that is downloaded transparently and allows you to run any application securely on the company’s network.

It uses Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP). NetExtender/Mobile Connect allows remote clients to have seamless access to resources on your local network.

Users can access NetExtender/Mobile Connect three ways: Using NetExtender/Mobile Connect on the Secure Mobile Access user portal, using the Microsoft Installer (MSI), or by using the NetExtender standalone client that is installed by clicking one of the NetExtender Clients in the Secure Mobile Access web-based management interface. The NetExtender/Mobile Connect standalone client application can be accessed directly from the Windows Start menu, from the Application folder or dock on Mac systems, by path name or from the shortcut bar on Linux systems, and with the icon on Android smart phones.

The SMA appliance supports client certificates in both the standalone Windows NetExtender/Mobile Connect client and the NetExtender/Mobile Connect Mobile client.

On Windows systems, NetExtender/Mobile Connect supports establishing a VPN session before logging in to Windows. NetExtender/Mobile Connect supports IPv6 client connections from Windows systems running Vista or newer, and from Linux clients. An IPv6 address pool for NetExtender/Mobile Connect is optional, while an IPv4 address pool is necessary.
