Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Administration Guide

Configuring the Network Tunnel Service

The network tunnel service controls access from the Connect Tunnel client, the OnDemand Tunnel agent, and the Mobile Connect agent. In order to deploy the network tunnel clients to users, you must first make one or more IP address pools available to the community. Configuring the network tunnel service requires setting up IP address pools that are used to allocate IP addresses to the clients; these IP addresses become the clients’ end points on VPN connections.

Network tunnel service configuration also allows you to enable Web resource filtering so that you can enforce the same URL-based rules that administrators define for ExtraWeb in tunnel sessions. Web resource filtering also allows you to leverage single sign-on functionality when accessing Web applications.

You can add custom connections to configure Connect Tunnel to access a different default appliance or realm, or list other appliances and realms the client can connect to. By default, Connect Tunnel is configured to access the realm and appliance from which it was downloaded.

To configure the network tunnel service

  1. In the AMC, navigate to System Configuration > Services.

  2. In the Access Services section, under Network tunnel service area, Configure.

    The Network Tunnel Service page displays.

  3. In the IP Address Pools area, create one or more IP address pools. For more information, see Configuring IP Address Pools.
  4. To enable and configure Web resource filtering, click Edit in the Web resource filtering area. For more information, see Configuring Web Resource Filtering.
  5. To configure a custom connection in which Connect Tunnel can access the current or a different default appliance or realm, or list other appliances and realms the client can connect to, click the New button in the Custom Connections area. For more information, see Configuring Custom Connections.
