Launching VPN Tunneling During a Windows Secure Application Manager Session

Users can launch VPN tunneling while signed in to Connect Secure via Windows Secure Application Manager (WSAM). When a user launches VPN tunneling in this scenario, however, the VPN tunneling installer automatically terminates the WSAM session prior to launching VPN Tunneling.

During the process, the user is prompted with a warning message informing them that they are about to terminate their WSAM session in favor of launching VPN tunneling. We recommend that you configure users’ VPN tunneling resource policies to feature as much access to network resources as they would have in their WSAM sessions. This way, when users choose to launch VPN tunneling (simultaneously terminating WSAM) they will still be able to access the same network resources.

Note: If users choose not to launch VPN tunneling, the VPN tunneling installer still automatically installs the client application on their computer, but does not launch VPN tunneling. After the client application has been installed, users can choose uninstall it manually via their secure gateway home page or the folder options available in the Windows Start menu.
