Configuration with an application server

The procedure for adding a server to access resources other than web-based resources is as follows:

  1. Click on Add then select Application server.
  2. Enter a name for this server. (The field can be left empty. Allowed characters: numbers, letters, spaces, -, _, and dots.)
  3. This server’s configuration then appears. The different parameters are explained below.
Destination server This field allows specifying the object corresponding to the server that the user will be able to access.
Port The port on the server accessible to the user can be specified in this field.

User workstation settings

Listening IP address (local) Local address of the client.
Port The JAVA applet uses this port, located on the remote workstation, to redirect encrypted traffic going to the Stormshield Network Firewall.
The user must possess certain privileges on this port (to open it, for example), therefore make sure that the host’s local administration rights are modified as well. Also, the specified port must be free on all hosts wishing to connect to the associated server via the portal.

Advanced properties

Enable Citrix compatibility Enables compatibility with the Citrix web authentication portal and access via the web browser. This option is useless if the Citrix fat client is used.
Command executed at startup This command, which is executed when the server is launched, allows the administrator to define actions to perform before displaying the server. For example, this command may execute  a script (installed on a server) that will check the activity of the antivirus installed on the user’s host before granting him access to the server.
