vpn howto

Hello,
maybe it's a silly question, too easy or the wrong forum but...

...I want to create a vpn-access for remote users to access our network and our OES-Servers. They should use the OES-Client for authentification and need to have access to mapped drives.

Is there any microfocus-solution, "step-by-step-howto" or "cool solution" to realize this?

Re: vpn howto

This is not an eDirectory topic, really. There are a million ways to do
VPNs, though I am not sure of the best one for your particular case.
Older versions of Access Manager (NAM0 had SSL-VPN capability, but that
was removed to focus more on access management.

You could always use any old SLES/OES box and make it an OpenVPN service.
It is pretty easy to setup, though managing keys can be a bit of a pain.

This may be a good place to ask your particular question:

As ab mentioned, many ways to do this. Not sure if you are looking
for a microfocus only solution. But just to toss out another idea...
I use a Barracuda firewall with a client-server VPN capability. The
Barracuda makes an LDAP connection to eDirectory. So users login to
the VPN with their eDirectory credentials and then run the OES Client
to login to the network and get their mapped drives.

Re: vpn howto

Our ISP has a fortigate appliace that does VPN and we did similar to above used ldap. In our newest Server OES 15 it does not seem to allow us to browse down the directory via the appliance. So i created multiple LDAP connectors one for each branch that has users in, and when adding them to the VPN Appliance you have to just go into the correct part of the tree then it works fine.
