Predefined bookmarks

Bookmarks are used as links to specific resources on the network. When a bookmark is selected from a bookmark list, a window opens with the requested web page. RDP and VNC open a window that requires a browser plug-in. FTP replaces the bookmark page with an HTML file-browser.

A web bookmark can include log in credentials to automatically log the SSL VPN user into the web site. When the administrator configures bookmarks, the web site credentials must be the same as the user’s SSL VPN credentials. Users configuring their own bookmarks can specify alternative credentials for the web site.

Predefined bookmarks can be added to portal profiles when creating or editing a profile.

To create a predefined bookmark:
  1. Go to VPN Manager > SSL-VPN and select Portal Profiles in the tree menu.
  2. Edit an existing profile, or create a new profile. See Editing portal profiles or Creating SSL VPN portal profiles.
  3. Click Create New in the Pre-Defined Bookmark field. Enable Web Mode must be selected for this field to be available. The Create New Bookmark dialog box opens. The available options will vary depending on the selected type.
