To make web-based applications and internal websites accessible to remote users with the proper credentials, configure Web Forwards. With Web Forwards, sensitive information does not need to be placed outside of your corporate firewall. Because all communication is secured with SSL, additional encryption or authentication routines are not required for the site.
The type of Web Forward that you use depends on the directory structure of your internal websites. For the most popular web-based applications, you can use predefined templates to configure the Web Forward. For all other websites, you can configure custom Web Forwards.
Web Forward templates
The Barracuda SSL VPN offers predefined Web Forward templates for the following types of applications and websites:
- Development Tools – E.g., JIRA 4.
- Mail – E.g., Outlook Web Access (see How to Configure a Microsoft Exchange OWA Web Forward).
- Portals – E.g., SharePoint (see How to Configure a Microsoft SharePoint Web Forward).
- Terminal Services – E.g., XenDesktop 5, RDP Clients.
Creating a custom Web Forward
If none of the available Web Forward templates matches your requirements, you can create custom Web Forwards.
