Add a Bookmark

This page describes how to add a bookmark.

  1. Go to Device Configuration > Configure > VPN > Bookmarks and click Add.
  2. Enter values for the following settings:
    Enter a descriptive name for the bookmark.
    Select a bookmark type. Depending on the selected connection type, different parameters are displayed. The following types are available:
    • HTTPS: Browser-based access to web applications via HTTPS.
    • HTTP: Browser-based access to web applications via HTTP.
      Note The URL used for the HTTP/HTTPS connection is composed of the destination, the port and the path options for this connection.
    • RDP: Remote access using the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), e.g., to open a remote desktop session to a Windows host.
    • TELNET: Terminal access using the Telnet protocol, e.g., to give access to a switch or a printer.
    • SSH: Terminal access using SSH.
    • FTP: File Transfer Protocol for exchanging files over packet-switched networks.
    • FTPS: Extension of FTP. Additionally supports TLS and SSL protocols.
    • SFTP: SSH File Transfer Protocol, or Secure File Transfer Protocol, is a separate protocol packaged with SSH that works in a similar way over a secure connection.
    • SMB: The Server Message Block (SMB) Protocol is a network file sharing protocol.
    • VNC: Remote access using Virtual Network Computing (VNC), e.g., to open a remote desktop of a Linux/Unix host.
      Note Currently only VNC classic authentication (password only) is supported. Make sure your server is set up accordingly.
    Note The default port is displayed next to the drop-down menu.
    Enter the URL of the website for which the bookmark is to be created.
    Note Note the examples displayed below the text box.
    Enter a port number for the bookmark. By default the standard port of the selected bookmark type is given.
    Automatic Login
    If enabled, users can sign in without knowing the authentication data. In this case, you have to provide the authentication data. The displayed options depend on the selected connection type:
    Enter the username users should use to connect.
    Enter the password users should use to connect.
    Note When using the connection type Telnet, for security reasons automatic sign-in only works when the banner length sent from the Telnet server does not exceed 4096 characters (including the password prompt). If the banner is longer, automatic sign-in fails. In this case reduce the banner length or switch to manual sign-in.
    Referred Domains
    (only with bookmark type HTTPS or HTTP)
    Search/add one or more domain(s)/URL(s) which are required by the bookmark URL to render it appropriately.

    Enter a domain name.
    Protocol Security
    (only with bookmark type RDP)
    Select the security protocol for the Remote Desktop session. You can choose between RDP, TLS and NLA (Network Level Authentication). Your settings have to comply with the server settings.

    Add the public key of the SSH host.

    Note After successful authentication the user is redirected to the path on the remote server.
