I'm at a small shop that has a SA 700 and they would like to use it for remote access to their desktops.
I've configured Network connect, but its not working as I imagined. The best I've been able to do is have the end user login to the VPN device > click network connect > and then open MS remote desktop > remember the user's internal IP address and finally > connect to their computer.
Is it possible for end users to sign in to the VPN and bypass all of the network connect bs and just control their computer ala Logmein or other remote desktop software?
Have you tried using Windows Terminal Services (WTS)? You don't need to use NC (Network Connect) for WTS on the IVE.
Users --> Resource Profiles --> Terminal Services --> New Profile.
If you turn TS on via user role options, you can also enable the ability to allow your users to create their own Terminal Service bookmarks.
you could also let network connect start automatically and run a startupscript including "mstsc -v 10.10.10.10" or any other command that opens the RDP connection! then the users RDP session opens immediately after loggin in!
Windows: Session start script
This script is executed after the NC session has started.
What error are you getting?
Are you seeing traffic flowing via NC for that connection? You can check user access , event logs for further details. You may also run policy trace to check where exactly its stuck.
To make sure RDP server is allowed on NC profile, check Resource policies -> Network Connect -> Network connect profiles
