    Yup we do here using SSL explorer (now Adito/OpenVPN ALS) although recently been looking at RD Gateway to remove the need for the Java Client

    Nope, using the RD Gateway, though we're not giving full desktop access only remote apps

    Though I have a VPN for myself to use to get in and upload without RD

    we use Juniper SSL VPN where users goes through secure website. Users goes to the remote access website and enters username/password; instantly they will receive a sms with passcode (OTP) which needs to be entered after the username/password box then will be presented with a welcome screen with users home directory contents on web-based explorer or they can click on terminal server link to connect to windows server 2008 R2 TS.

    We are looking to replace our Juniper SSL VPN as it is quite old and buggy when it comes to remote access via Apple Mac clients. Can someone please recommend something alternative.

    I liked the idea of RD Gateway with Remote Apps.

    Was going to do RD Gateway but the Web Access portal was a nightmare so the only way round that would be publishing .rdp files on the website (not sure how well that works?)

    Was going to use Adito but our new Palo Alto has a VPN component built in so chances are will be using that now

    We publish the RDP files to our home access plus+ site, they then use that to get the programs. Unfortunately they get asked for a username and password, and they need to put the domain\ in first

    It's pre-populating the domain bit that's the killer, wouldn't work for toffee in RDWeb but thought you could add it to .rdp files?

    You can pre-populate in the RDP file - just in the username box put domain\ and then when they are asked for a username it puts domain infront
