SSL VPN and Junos Pulse


On August 11, 2014, SSL VPN will be modified so that the Junos Pulse client is presented when you log into the SSL VPN.

Mobile users (iOS, Android, etc.) have used the Junos Pulse client for several years and now UC is transitioning the SSL VPN to present Junos Pulse as the default client for SSL VPN connections.

This change will primarily only affect “new” SSL VPN users, users that have the “Network Connect” client installed will still be able to connect using the “Network Connect” client.

Click here to see Junos Pulse installation and setup instructions.  These instructions will also be available from the HSL Off Campus Access page.

If you have any questions or problems with setting up the Junos Pulse client, please contact UCIT Help Desk at 556-435.
