Secure Mobile Access 10.2 User Guide

Launching NetExtender Directly from Your Computer

After the first access and installation of NetExtender, you can launch NetExtender directly from your computer without first navigating to the Secure Mobile Access portal.

To launch NetExtender

  1. Navigate to Start > All Programs.
  2. Select the SonicWall NetExtender folder, and then click SonicWall NetExtender. The NetExtender login window is displayed.
  3. The IP address of the last SMA server you connected to is displayed in the Server field. To display a list of recent SMA servers you have connected to, click the arrow.

  4. Enter your username and password.
  5. The last domain you connected to is displayed in the Domain field.

    The NetExtender client reports an error message if the provided domain is invalid when you attempt to connect. Note that the domain names are case-sensitive.

  6. The drop-down menu at the bottom of the window provides three options for remembering your username and password:

    • Save name and password (if allowed)
    • Save user name only if server allows
    • Always ask for user name and password

    Having NetExtender save your user name and password can be a security risk and should not be enabled if there is a chance that other people could use your computer to access sensitive information on the network.
