I did a full network connect and could not believe how fast the downloads installed. It was a blink for the initial connect. I also have host checker.
No, not through the native VDI configuration, However, on a side note this can achieved through pulse/network Connect
the new HTLM5 support is really cool. I have tested with some HMTL5 RDP Clients which work really well. I also try to get the Citrix HTML5 Receiver to work with the SA but here i have some problems regarding the rewrite engine. It works with some errors in Firefox but it doesn't work with Safari or Chrome. I think if this would work perfect it is relly good usecase for connecting to Citrix enviroments. Or do you have an idea where the problem can be?
Upgraded to 7.4R1 and couple of days later Junos Pulse clients could not connect anymore. Credentials were accepted but clients hanged to Connecting.... phase. Restarted services from MAG4610 and connections started to work again. Now is going day 6 after restart and no problems reported.
Indeed it does matter if you're using SSL and or ESP, because ESP (IPSEC) is mostly based on UDP, which is by far faster then a TCP Connection (No direct packet acknowledge needed).
Hope this helps
