VPN Enforcement

I'm setting up a new policy and want to use VPN Enforcement to limit
communication to only use a VPN client when in an Unknown location. Has
anyone gotten this to work? I configured everything under the advanced
tab for the VPN enforcement and was able to get the alert to work and the
VPN client to prompt for authentication when at an Unknown location. I
want to limit web browsing to remote users and force them to use a VPN

Any suggestions on how I can do this.

Re: VPN Enforcement

I figured it out below are the steps from the support site. It works great.

How to create a VPN Enforcement rule
1. Create a location called VPN
2. Click on the Locations tab and right click the “Defined
Locations” folder
3. Select “Add New Defined Locations, name the Location
“VPN” and choose an icon.
4. Under the VPN location right click the “Firewall Settings”
folder and choose Associate Existing Firewall Settings.
5. The select component screen will be displayed. Choose the “All
Closed” firewall setting and click OK.
6. Click File Save and right click the “All Closed” firewall
and select “Set as default.
7. Select the “Global Policy Settings” tab and select VPN
8. Check the “Enable” box and enter the IP address for the VPN
concentrator. The firewall for the VPN location will automatically open a
trusted access control list for the VPN concentrator’s IP address.
9. Select the desired location for the “switch to”. This is
the location that becomes active once the client detects true internet
traffic. In this example the VPN location is selected.
10. Select the desired “trigger location”. This is the
location that will begin looking for true internet traffic and if detected
will switch to the “switch to” location. This will usually be
the Unknown location.
11. If desired a custom message can be launched once the VPN

Enforcement rule triggers and a Hyperlink can be added to the custom

The Disconnect Event is optional, and provided for VPN clients that
require the user disconnects before they log-off the network. Select a
hyperlink from the drop-down menu
