Network Connect - can primary and secondary connection be specified?

I want to use the nclauncher to have my users connect - thus bypassing the portal login pages.

I have two different entry points into my network - geographically diverse.

Is it possible to specify a primary connection for users to connect to and if it is not available, have the network connect client attempt to connect to a secondary location - something like:

nclauncher -url http://test.primary.com -url http://test.secondary.com/ -u User1 -r "Users"

I doubt if thats possible. The URL parameter only can hold only one value into it as in one URL.

Hi,

This would only be possible with either:

1. A load balancer able to do https healthchecks

2. A dynamic DNS entry, so both sites share the same domain name which fails over when the primary site is unavailable.

3. I think that JunOS Pulse can do this, or at least list both connections without needing to type URLS, if you are running IVE7.

Thanks for the input.

I have managed to get a work around using a batch file.

It will try the first conenction - depending on the connection - success or fail, an errorlevel is returned which can then be used to exit the file or go to the next connection attempt for site number 2.

I will write this into a VB wrapper, so the user has a front-end where credentials can be entered and secured - instead of using a batch file - if anyone wants the code, let me know and I'll post it.

No, it is not possible as Rakesh mentioned. You would need two different script/launcher files one for each IVE.
