Specifying trusted external IP addresses

If you add trusted external IP addresses, the Gateway Enforcer appliance allows clients at these IP addresses to connect to the network even if they do not run any client software.

Because a client is not installed on VPN servers, you should add the server IP to the trusted IP list if you have a VPN server requiring network access through a Gateway Enforcer.

If you enter an invalid IP address, you receive an error message.


You need to add the corporate VPN server's internal IP address in the Trusted external IP Addresses field first.

See About trusted IP addresses.
