The FirePass controller, version 5.0 includes a standalone VPN client for Windows 2000 and Windows XP computers. This Network Access client provides secure remote access to your corporate network without a browser session.
Using the standalone client, remote users can access your corporate intranet without using a Web browser. The client gives users access to these FirePass controller features:
As FirePass controller administrator, you control the Network Access, Application Access, and Terminal Services options that remote users have access to. Users see the same favorites they would see if they connected to the FirePass controller using a Web browser. You define those favorites in the Administrative Console. For more information on defining favorites, see the online help pages.
The FirePass standalone VPN client must be preinstalled on remote computers. Download the Network Access client installation package from the FirePass Administrative Console, and install the client on each remote computer.
To download the standalone VPN client
After downloading the MSI package, you can install it on client computers, or copy the setup package to a shared location (like a network directory) so that individual users can install the FirePass standalone VPN client on their computers.
