Subject: Deploying SSL-based VPNs

Hi all

I'm currently interested in SSL-VPN solutions, problems and
deployments. Personally I prefere much more the term "SSL-based remote
access" since almost all those products (except OpenVPN) claiming to
be SSL-VPNs don't offer any network functionality. Would you guys
share your experiences?

What are the issues you spotted when deploying SSL-based remote access

Any experiences with certain products? (my company for example made
bad experiences with iGate from SafeNet)

What features make an SSL-remote access solution a good one?

I know these are some very general questions.

Look at the SA3000 (formerly known as Neoteris) from Juniper Networks.
It's a very robust SSL-VPN that has a lot of features and granular
network control. It has an ActiveX client for windows and the Java
client actually works on Macs. Haven't tested it on Linux
