Dynamic VPN

Access Profile

Specifies the access profile that controls the authentication of users who want to download Access Manager. (You will need to select these access profiles when configuring the IKE gateway and dynamic VPN global options. 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 Configuration page. For more information, see "Configuring an IKE Gateway Configuration (Dynamic VPNs)."

Select a previously created access profile from the list that is displayed.

Force Upgrade

Specifies an option to set up a 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 to 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 on the user’s computer.

Select the check box to enable or disable force upgrade. (Enabled by default.)

Remote Exceptions IP

Specifies the IP address and net mask of exceptions to the remote protected resources list.

Enter an IP address and net mask and click Add.

Users

Specifies the list of users who can use this client configuration.

Enter an user name, and click Add.
