Access Profile

Access profile that controls the authentication of users who want to download Access Manager. (You will need to select these access profiles when configuring your IKE gateway and dynamic VPN global options. Note that you can use the same access profile to authenticate users in both cases, or you can use separate access profiles to authenticate downloads and VPN sessions.)

Note: This Access Profile option does not control authentication for VPN sessions. For session authentication, use the Access Profile option on the IKE Gateway Quick Configuration page. For more information, see "Configuring an IKE Gateway-Quick Configuration (Dynamic VPNs)".

Select a previously created access profile.

Force Upgrade

Enable this option if you want the setup program to automatically download the latest client and install it on the user’s computer when the setup program detects a version mismatch between the client and server. Otherwise, the setup program prompts the user the upgrade the client when it detects a version mismatch, but does not force the upgrade. If the user does not choose to upgrade, the setup program will launch the existing client version that resides on the user’s computer.

Click the check box to enable or disable. (Enabled by default.)
