Features : SonicWALL Global VPN Client

  • Introduction to Global VPN Client 
     
    Client Policy Provisioning ‐ Using only the IP address or Fully Qualified Domain Name
    (FQDN) of the
    SonicWall VPN gateway, the VPN configuration data is automatically
    downloaded from the SonicWall 
    VPN gateway via a secure IPsec tunnel, removing the
    burden from the remote user of provisioning VPN 
    connections.
    XAUTH Authentication with RADIUS ‐ Provides added security with user authentication
    after the client has been authenticated via a RADIUS server.
    VPN Session Reliability ‐ Allows automatic redirect in case of a SonicWall VPN gateway
    failure. If a SonicWall VPN gateway is down then the Global VPN Client can go through
    another SonicWall VPN 
    gateway.
    Multiple Subnet Support ‐ Allows Global VPN Client connections to more than one subnet
    in the configuration to increase networking flexibility.
    Third‐Party Certificate Support ‐ Supports VeriSign, Entrust, Microsoft, and Netscape
    Certificate Authorities (CAs) for enhanced user authentication.
    Tunnel All Support ‐ Provides enhanced security by blocking all traffic not directed to the
    VPN tunnel to prevent Internet attacks from entering the corporate network through a VPN
    connection.
    DHCP over VPN Support ‐ Allows IP address provisioning across a VPN tunnel for the
    corporate network while allowing WAN DHCP for Internet Access from the ISP.
    Secure VPN Configuration ‐ Critical Global VPN Client configuration information is locked
    from the user to prevent tampering.
    AES and 3DES Encryption ‐ Supports 168‐bit key 3DES (Data Encryption Standard) and
    AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) for increased security. AES requires SonicOS 2.0 or
    higher on the SonicWall VPN gateway appliance.
    GMS Management ‐ Allows Global VPN Client connections to be managed by SonicWall’s
    award‐winning Global Management System (GMS).
    Multi‐Platform Client Support ‐ Supports 32‐bit and 64‐bit versions of Windows:
    Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7.
    NAT Traversal ‐ Enables Global VPN Client connections to be initiated from behind any
    device performing NAT (Network Address Translation). The SonicWall Global VPN Client
    encapsulates IPsec VPN traffic to pass through NAT devices, which are widely deployed to
    allow local networks to use one external IP address for an entire network.
    Automatic Reconnect When Error Occurs ‐ Allows the Global VPN Client to keep
    retrying a connection if it encounters a problem connecting to a peer. This feature allows
    the Global VPN Client to automatically make a connection to a SonicWall VPN gateway that
    is temporarily disabled, without manual intervention.
    Ghost Installation for Large Scale Installations ‐ Enables the Global VPN Client’s virtual
    adapter to get its default address after installation and then create a ghost image.
    NT Domain Login Script Support ‐ Allows Global VPN Clients to perform Windows NT
    domain 
    authentication after establishing a secure IPsec tunnel. The SonicWall VPN gateway
    passes the login script 
    as part of the Global VPN Client configuration. This feature allows the
    VPN user to have access to mapped 
    network drives and other network services.
    Dual Processor Support ‐ Enables the Global VPN Client to operate on dual‐processor
    computers.
    • Group Policy Management ‐ Global VPN Clients access can be customized and restricted to
    specific subnet access (Requires SonicOS Enhanced).
    Hub and Spoke VPN Access ‐ Allows IP addressing from SonicWall VPN gateway’s DHCP
    Server to Global VPN Client for configuring a different subnet for all remote Global VPN
    Clients than the subnet of the LAN. Makes hub‐and‐spoke VPN access simpler. When a
    Global VPN Client successfully authenticates with the central site, it receives a virtual IP
    address that also grants it access to other trusted VPN sites.
    Default VPN Connections File ‐ Enables the SonicOS administrator to configure and
    distributethe corporate VPN connections with the Global VPN Client software to streamline
    VPN client deployment.
    Single VPN Connection to any SonicWall Secure Wireless Appliance for Roaming
    Allows users to use a single VPN connection to access the networks of multiple SonicWall
    Secure Wireless appliances.

    Automatic Configuration of Redundant Gateways from DNS ‐ When an IPsec gateway
    domain name resolves to multiple IP addresses, the Global VPN Client uses the IP addresses in
    the list as failover gateways.
    Tunnel State Display Enhancement ‐ The Global VPN Client provides information about the
    state of VPN 
    tunnels. In addition to the states of enabled, disabled, and connected, the Global
    VPN Client indicates 
    when tunnels are authenticating, provisioning, and connecting.
    Tunnel Status Pop‐Up Window ‐ The Global VPN Client alerts users when tunnels are
    connected or 
    disconnected by displaying a small pop‐up window.
    Smart Card and USB Token Authentication ‐ The Global VPN Client is integrated with the
    Microsoft Cryptographic Application Program (MS CryptoAPI or MSCAPI), which enables the
    Global VPN Client to support user authentication using digital certificates on Smart cards and
    USB tokens.
    NAT‐T RFC 3947 Support ‐ Allows for automatic detection of NAT along the path between
    two IKE peers during IKE Phase 1 negotiation. On detection of NAT in middle, packets are
    UDP encapsulated using port 4500.
    DNS Redirect ‐ DNS queries to DNS suffix associated with Virtual Adapter are not sent on
    the physical adapter.
    Tunnel All Support Enhancement ‐ Provides the ability to route clear traffic to directly
    connected network interfaces that are configured with the Route All policy, which is generally
    used in the WLAN zone.
    Program Auto‐Start on VPN Connection ‐ Automatically launches a program, with optional
    arguments, when successful VPN connections are established, as specified in the Connection
    Properties dialog.

  • Sergeshevchenko:
    would say overall Sonicwall's Global VPN Client works well..sometimes I do have issues and only way to fix is to reboot the machine.

    Justin:

    I did it takes a second to configure properly when first setting up the connection. AD integration makes this tool super simple for end users to utilize.
