We were excited to scrap all of our ipsec VPN's when we deployed CSG.
Are you using them for access to stuff that isn't available via Citrix
or am I missing something?

 

Thanks,

R

indeed, however, the access gateway compliments MSAM in terms of
providing the SSL endpoints and providing ipsec like VPN's but all via
SSL...

        Correct me if I'm wrong but this does away with needing CSG and
provides other appication support rather than just ICA?  In other words
also replacing some of MSAM capibilities.  Kill 2 products with
one?.....A hardware based products surely got to be better than some of
the dodgy software coding we see these days.....

         

        What other products does this compete with from other companies?

                Steve, I wonder if you can point me in the direction of
some good documentation on the exact workings of this device... or I
guess more specifically, I am trying to fully understand the subtleties
of SSL, PPTP and Ipsec VPN's.

                 

                I have worked with a VPN set up over a PPTP connection
before.  So, my understanding is that this PPTP VPN is working at the
network layer, i.e. you end up with an additional network entry in your
routing table on the client device which is tunneled through PPTP.

                 

                So, the SSL VPN works at the application layer and
provides a TCP tunnel? how does this work exactly and how is this tunnel
presented to the client?  

                 

                What do they mean when they say Citrix leverages the SSL
VPN along with the ipsec VPN.. does that mean you get a network route
entry for tunneling non ICA traffic, and then you get SSL encryption for
'proxying' ICA connections, or have I just made all that up?

                 

                We are very interested in this box, but just not too
sure about the colour.

                 

                thanks in advance, Brian

                        Now that this is public, I want to let everyone
know that product totally rocks! It has all of the best attributes of an
IPSec VPN and an SSL VPN without the problems associated with both.
While I have been less than totally excited about some of Citrix's other
new products over the last few years, this one is pretty awesome. I
predict that it is going to take off and dominate the VPN market
eventually.....
