Create tunneled web apps to allow SSL VPN users to access web-based internal applications through an SSL tunnel created by CudaLaunch for Desktop. The client then connects to a dynamically generated port on the loopback interface (e.g., 127.0.0.1:7324). CudaLaunch forwards the web traffic through the SSL tunnel to the SSL VPN service and the web server behind it
