Android - Web Rewriting - Junos Pulse vr browser

Hello,

 

We need to deliver to our partners, some web application (mainly based in MS Share Point) to be used in Android devices. It must/should work in any version of Android. But if one application is working in one Android version with Junos Pulse, other application don't, and it just works with the browser. If tested in other version of Android, it could happen it stop work with Junos Pulse and works with the browser. Before this applications be available through Web Bookmarks, first they are tested by the developers directly using Junos Pulse L3 VPN and this problems do not happen.

 

So, my question is. It is different to use Junos Pulse and the default browser of the Android? Or Junos Pulse just use the engine of the default browser? This is true for any operating system (MS Windows, IOS & Android).

 

In the list of supported mobile OS, it is just for the Junos Pulse (it is the same thing of Pulse Mobile Client, right?) or also for the default browsers of those versions?

 

Regards,

 

Filipe Carvalho

Re: Android - Web Rewriting - Junos Pulse vr browser

Pulse on mobile can browse intranet sites; HOWEVER, it is not a full browser and does not operate as such. If you need to provide browser-based access only, your best option is to use the built-in (device) browser only & allow Pulse as an option, if desired/required, for VPN access to allow direct access without the rewriting component.

So, my question is. It is different to use Junos Pulse and the default browser of the Android?
>>>Yes
Or Junos Pulse just use the engine of the default browser?
>>>it is its own engine

This is true for any operating system (MS Windows, IOS & Android).
>>>yes. It is s standalone application. On the desktop it provides VPN only. On iOS it provides VPN & web access. Android it provides VPN & web access (depending on the version of client & Pulse).

In the list of supported mobile OS, it is just for the Junos Pulse (it is the same thing of Pulse Mobile Client, right?)
>>>mobile & desktop clients have different versions.
or also for the default browsers of those versions?
>>>browser support is on the SA list

Depending on the device, Junos Pulse experience may be difference.  In the Android market place, there are two release of Junos Pulse for Samsung devices and other devices.  For the browser session within Pulse has its own SDK and does not rely on the default browser of the device.  If you are going to use the default browser, you will need to ensure your device supports the L3 tunnel or this will not work.

 

Mobile device support for Junos Pulse can be found at http://www.juniper.net/support/downloads/?p=pulsemobile

Re: Android - Web Rewriting - Junos Pulse vr browser

 

Regarding the browser support in the mobile version (Android, IOS and Windows Mobile) in the supported platforms it doesn't cleary say which browsers are supported, as they are in the PC version (Windows, Linux, Mac).

 

So, my interpretation of the default browser is supported by Juniper in each of the qualified versions its true or not?

Yes, that is correct: only the default browser is supported on the mobile devices.
