After you enable and configure the SSL VPN, you can add network places. Network places give your end users direct access to network file shares in your corporate network. Users accessing the file share are prompted for the username and password. Access and privileges on the file share are determined by the permissions set for the user by the admin of the network file share.
The following network file systems are supported:
- SMB – Connect to SMB1 and SMB2 shares, but must be able to negotiate a CIFS session.
Before you begin
Enable the SSL VPN service. For more information, see How to Enable SSL VPN and CudaLaunch.
