    We have run with a Sonicwall SSL 4000 VPN system sitting behind an ISA 2006 Firewall.

    You get a web based portal with "bookmarks" to internal services and resources easy to setup and maintain.

    Have you got a linky for that? Is the firewall a module for corporate guardian proxy or an entirely different product/machine

    Different product, corporate guardian is a 1 nic filter/proxy, firewall is a multiple nic firewall that can also filter and proxy.

    Re: SSL VPN

    @Cybernerd - if you wanted to upgrade your CG6 to something like SchoolGuardian (effectively our firewall with the Guardian functionality on top) we can do that easily and cheaply enough.

    Soon we will have betas of the new product available for customer testing, and we'll have finals at the end of January. I'd be happy for you to test the system out, see if it suits you.

    Re: SSL VPN

    Thanks for the tips and advice. Gonna give SSL Explorer a try - it looks to fit our needs well and cheaper than Whale IAG.

    Thanks
    Steve

    IME SSL Explorer is pretty good, and theres the Free version, which iirc does most of the "useful stuff".

    Re: SSL VPN

    I run SSL explorer here with no issues, extreemly reliable and offers all the functionality you would expect from a VPN/remote access package, and it integrates into Active Dicrectory nicely.
