Example - Use SSL VPN Web Apps for External File Share Links

  • Last updated on

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 into 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.
