Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Connect Tunnel User Guide

Connect Tunnel on Linux

To start Connect Tunnel on the Linux platform

  1. After Connect Tunnel is installed, you can run startctui from any location.


    You can also start Connect Tunnel by double-clicking the Connect Tunnel icon in the desktop.

    The Connect Tunnel login dialog appears.

  2. In the Configuration list, select a VPN configuration and click Connect. If there are no saved configurations, you must create one; see Creating a New Configuration for more information.
  3. If you access a network resource that uses self-signed or invalid server certificate, Connect Tunnel will display the certificate. Verify that the server certificate is from a trusted source before accepting it. Because anyone can issue a certificate, you should accept certificates only from trusted sources. Otherwise, the information you receive may be invalid. If you have any concerns about whether to accept a certificate, check with your administrator.
  4. In the Login Group selection, choose your Login Group and click OK.
  5. In the Username field, type your username.
  6. In the Password or Passcode field, type your password or passcode. (Passwords may be case-sensitive: make sure the Caps Lock and Num Lock keys are not enabled.)
  7. Click OK.

    A message in the login dialog indicates the status of the VPN connection.

    In the Connect Tunnel login dialog, you can initiate a connection to a different VPN or login group by choosing a different configuration from the Configuration list.
