Pulse ESP Transport Mode for L3 VPN

Junos Pulse 3.0 on Microsoft Windows now includes support for SSL VPN ESP transport mode.


Advantage on introducing this feature is because, UDP-based ESP transport mode provides higher throughput than the TCP-based SSL transport mode.


JuniperÕs dual-transport Junos Pulse client will attempt to establish the VPN tunnel over ESP transport mode by default. If this is unsuccessful, Junos Pulse will automatically attempt to set up the tunnel over SSL.


We have an administrative option in the Secure Access (SA) GUI in IVE OS version 7.2 which allows administrators to prevent the failover from ESP to SSL transport mode. If the administrator option is enabled, Junos Pulse attempts to connect only via the ESP transport mode.


Please post all your queries on this regard and we will surely help you with our best efforts on answering your questions.
