If you are new to SAML2 and federation, you may still find my first article useful as I endeavored to explain each concept as each configuration step is described. This article is not inclusive, but an update to that article. In the years since it was written, several new features related to SAML have been added to Salesforce.com.

This document describes the source NAT (SNAT) configuration for the Novell SSL VPN server, when full tunnel mode is enabled. Full tunnel mode is a feature announced in the 3.1 SP1 Version of Access Manager. In full tunnel mode, the client connection is completely secure as any traffic initiated at the client is tunneled to SSL VPN server and then directed to the respective networks. While redirecting, SSL VPN server makes use of the source NAT configuration to reach the public and private networks.
