With the recent release of Access Manager 3 Support Pack 4, the SSLVPN now includes some new features that will allow you to customize the main SSLVPN portal page. The two main options that are configurable are in relation to branding, by changing the logo displayed, and the content displayed on the page. Regarding the content displayed, we have also introduced the option of customizing the information displayed as the connection is being made (for example, notifying users to be patient as the connection gets initialized, or emphising that the SSLVPN portal page should never be disconnected), or once the connection is made and the tunnel is initialized successfully.
The steps below outline the steps required to do both:
Changing the SSLVPN Logo
You must retain the filename and file size of the original graphic.
Customizing the Content of the Home Page
Save and close the file
Simply restart the SSLVPN servlet by issuing an /etc/init.d/novell-tomcat4 restart and the next time you connect, the new branding and messages will be displayed on the SSLVPN portal page.
