Re: Junos Pulse using Acme Gizmo?

You should not be attempting to do anything using AcmeGizmo. As Ken said it is for resellers to use for demonstrations of SSL-VPN for sales purposes. You want to consider Junos Pulse just like Network Connect - it is another way to get VPN connectivity to your network through the SSL box. So you you need to use / define all the standard SSL "stuff" - auth server, realm, role, etc.

When you configure a role and you select Network Connect (NC) you now can choose between NC and Pulse as your connection client.

Acme Gizmo is a bogus company name which Juniper has used in SA demo configurations forever - in fact, I think it dates from the Neoteris beginnings of the device.

Thank you very much for your responce. But I myself think that Acme Gizmo is not a just a bogus company name.

See here http://acmegizmo.com/

I think that Acme Gizmo is a some kind a authenticate server or something like that isn't it?

All of this is just for Juniper demos. The name comes from the Road Runner cartoons in the US about 50 years ago - Wile E. Coyote would purchase all sorts of equipment from the Acme Gizmo company to use in his pursuit of the Road Runner.

Thank you very much for your kindness.

So, in my understanding is Acme Gizmo is just a fake company's name and I should prepare a authenticate server to authorize users from remote access instead of that?
