Bookmarks

Bookmarks are the resources whose access will be available through the user portal. Bookmarks are applied through the Clientless Access policy and are available to users who have web or application access.

Device Configuration > Configure > VPN > Bookmarks

The bookmark feature enables users from external networks to access internal resources via pre-configured connection types, using only a browser as a client, without installing plug-ins. To do so, the user logs in to the User Portal. On the SSL VPN tab, a list of all connections available to this user is shown. Clicking the Connect button initiates the connection to the defined internal resource. As an administrator you have to generate these connections beforehand, specifying the allowed users, the connection type and other settings. Internal resources can be accessed using different connection types: for example Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) or Virtual Network Computing (VNC) to access remote desktops, a browser to use web applications (HTTP/HTTPS), or Telnet/Secure Shell (SSH) for terminal sessions. However, the portal does not permit to download content, e.g. via HTTP, to the user's local computer. Using this feature it is possible to give multiple users access to internal resources which do not support multi-user access themselves (e.g., network hardware like switches) or easily provide very granular access to just one specific service instead of giving access to entire systems or networks.
