1.6 SSL VPN Server

What you need to know

  • Username and password of the Access Manager administrator.

  • IP address of the Administration Console.

For more information

See Installing the SSL VPN Server in the NetIQ Access Manager 3.1 SP5 Installation Guide.

You can install the SSL VPN server either as a traditional SSL VPN server (which communicates with the Access Gateway for authentication credentials) or as an ESP enabled server (which communicates with the Identity Server for authentication credentials). You can install the SSL VPN server on a separate machine, with the Identity Server, with the Administration Console, or with the Access Gateway Appliance.

To install SSL VPN on a separate machine:

  1. Download the tar.gz file, extract it, and use install.sh to start the installation.

    For software download instructions, see the “Novell Access Manager Readme”.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Type 4 to install the traditional SSL VPN.

    • Type 3 to install the ESP-Enabled SSL VPN.

  3. Press Enter, then follow the prompts.
