VPN

Description

 

VPN Entry is used to configure a VPN. One VPN entry can be linked to multiple sessions. See Configuring a VPN for multiple sessions to see the step-by-step guide.

 

VPNs and access to your data source

Many organizations configure their devices to channel ALL traffic through the VPN. This may break the connection to your data source. When you are subject to this constraint, it is best to enable the Offline Mode in Data Source Settings (System Settings), then configure the VPN options to automatically Go offline on connection.

 

For more information on how to manage VPN, please consult VPN Management topic.
