The Juniper Networks NetScreen-Remote VPN client is a virtual private network (VPN) client that you can install on a PC or laptop computer to send and receive secure communications over the Internet. NetScreen-Remote client is certified by the International Computer Security Association (ICSA) as an IPsec-compliant VPN solution.
When NetScreen-Remote client operates on an unprotected public network, such as the Internet, it can create a VPN tunnel between your PC or laptop computer and a J Series Services Router running JUNOS Software. The tunnel secures IPsec traffic sent across a public or private TCP/IP network. NetScreen-Remote client allows you to specify an internal network IP address to be sent for client-to-gateway communications.
NetScreen-Remote client starts automatically each time the computer starts and runs transparently behind other software applications.
