The SSL VPN service allows administrators to distribute files stored on external cloud storage providers such as Google Drive or Microsoft One Drive via Web App resources. Upload the software to the cloud storage and create a web app resource using the public link. When the user logs in to the SSL VPN portal via web interface or CudaLaunch the file can be downloaded by clicking on the Web App resource.
Before you begin
- Upload the file to your cloud storage provider and create a public link for the file. Link sharing must be enabled for the users to access the file.
- The client's operating system and browser must be able to open the link and to launch the distributed file or software.
