Java support in NG SSL VPN

  • Type: Knowledgebase
  • Date changed: 2 years ago
Solution #00007547

Scope:

Barracuda NG Firewall, All

Answer:
Starting with Chrome 42, support was removed in the browser for running NPAPI plugins. Mozilla has also announced that support for NPAPI will also be removed from Firefox before the end of 2016. This includes the Java browser plugin. The Microsoft Edge browser does not support the Java browser plugin either. Oracle has announced the deprecation of the Java browser plugin. This means that, instead of just being able to run a Java application (such as RDP), you will now see some text which says you don't have Java installed at all. How will this affect you?

 

As the Java plugin is no longer allowed to execute, any features requiring Java will no longer work in Chrome, Edge and soon Firefox. This includes (but may not be limited to):

·         Applications (RDP, SSH, VNC, Telnet)

·         Tunnels

·         Network Places (SMB)

·         Health Check

Workarounds:

1. Use another browser that supports the Java browser plugin (such as Internet Explorer or Safari)

2. As of version 7.0+ of the F-Series and 7.1+ of the X-Series, these features (RDP, Tunnels and Network Places) are now available via the CudaLaunch App (for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android). See [2]https://www.barracuda.com/products/ngfirewall/cudalaunch

3. Use  the Barracuda Network Access Client (TINA) or IPSec VPN client before manually launching a native Application. See https://campus.barracuda.com/solution/501600000014MufAAE
