B.5 The SSL VPN Applet Fails to Download on a SLED 11 64-Bit Machine

On a SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 11 64-bit machine, the SSL VPN applet might fail to download after log into the SSL VPN client. It displays a blank page because the browser fails to find the appropriate JRE plug-in installed on the client machine.

To work around the issue,

  1. Run the following command to check if JRE plug-in is installed:

    rpm -aq | grep jre-plugin

  2. If JRE plug-in is not installed, select YaST > Software Management to install it.

  3. Search for the Sun JRE plug-in and install it.

  4. Reconnect to the SSL VPN client.
