Appliance Management Console (AMC) is a Web-based administrative tool (see AMC Dashboard) that manages the appliance by providing centralized access for:
- Managing security policies
- Configuring the system (including networking and certificate configuration)
AMC is accessible from a Web browser.
- Web proxy service provides users with secure access to Web-based applications, Web servers, and
network file servers from a Web browser. Web proxy service is a secure HTTP reverse proxy that brokers
and encrypts access to Web-based resources.
Network tunnel service is a network routing technology that provides secure network tunnel access to a wide range of applications, including those that use:
- Non-TCP protocols such as Voice Over IP (VoIP) and ICMP
- Reverse-connection protocols
- Bi-directional protocols such as FTP
Network tunnel service works in conjunction with the Connect Tunnel client, the OnDemand Tunnel
agent, and the Mobile Connect client to provide authenticated and encrypted access. It can traverse
firewalls, NAT devices, and other proxy servers that can interfere with traditional VPN devices.
Management API provides URLs to view and modify appliance data in JSON format. The API is divided into two primary URLs that handle HTTP requests before and after the appliance has completed initial configuration:
- During initial configuration:
https://<AMC IP address:8443>/Setup
- On configured appliance:
https://<AMC IP address:8443>/Console
<AMC IP address> is the IP address of your SMA appliance.
