Generic tunnels are used to tunnel TCP connections for client/server applications protected by your F-Series Firewall. The tunnel is created by CudaLaunch and terminated at the SSL VPN service. The user connects to a port on the 127.0.0.1 interface, instead of directly to the remote resource as in a VPN. CudaLaunch accepts the local connection and forwards the traffic through the SSL tunnel. The SSL VPN service forwards the traffic to the destination IP address and port defined in the tunnel configuration. Traffic from the firewall to the destination IP in the network does not have to be encrypted. Active tunnels are automatically terminated when the session is closed or timed out.
Configuring generic tunnels
Configure a generic tunnel resource containing one or more SSL tunnels that forward the TCP traffic of the remote service. Access to tunnel resources can be limited via the user groups.
