Notes on the Sophos SSL VPN Client

If you have issues with authentication, and/or have changed computer, you can re-download the client and reinstall it. That will give you a new connection. Just re-download and reinstall over the old one, you do not need to worry about uninstalling the previous version.

The Sophos SSL VPN Client is by default running in the system tray…:

If install multiple VPN client’s under the same windows user, you will also get multiple connections. This could happen on computers where one username is used to log on, but multiple other usernames are used to connect to VPN.

Connecting to a computer with Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)

Now that you are connected to K. LUND Offshore with Sophos SSL VPN, you can connect to your personal

computer/desktop. You need to know the name of your computer to connect to it. You need to make a note of this name in advance; there should be a label on the computer chassis. If you do not know it or see a label, please contact IT, we can help you find it.

Now it is time to start your Remote Desktop Client. This manual will only show the built in RDP client for Windows 7. The basics are the same for other OS and versions of Windows.

The RDP client is found under the Accessories folder in the startmenu.

If the username is WRONG, you need to change it, then click “Use another account”. Type your username and password here:

!! use only lower case letters in username !!

Note; if the domain is not specified with “Domain:KLOFFSHORE” like in the picture above, you need to type kloffshore\xxxx in username, where xxxx is your username, and then the password

Be aware! If you do a shutdown, (it is well hidden) you will not be able to log on to the computer remotely again, unless someone turns the computer back on again for you.

If you just want to leave the RDP session open, you can just disconnect it by clicking the white X in the top banner of the RDP window:

RDP

To connect to your own computer or a virtual computer you have been assigned, you would also need a Remote Desktop Client for MAC, you can find it on Appstore. Microsoft Remote Desktop is recommended.

You need a computer to connect to, if you already connect to a computer, physical or virtual at KLO, you are all set, and can use that one. If not you need to contact IT.

Using HTML5 VPN Portal

First, some limitation of HTML5 VPN:

1. It needs to be preconfigured 2. Slow performance

3. Copy & Paste limitations 4. Keyboard layout issues

Some benefits of HTML5 VPN:

1. Quick access, without VPN client

2. Less problems with firewalls and security settings at remote locations 3. Good enough for small workloads

To summarize, if you have a dedicated computer it is always best to use the full Sophos VPN client as long as it works. HTML5 VPN is more of a “spare tire”/second option.

HTML5 VPN is not enabled as default, please contact IT if you need HTML5 VPN.

You go to the same webpage as where you would download the full Sophos SSL VPN Client:

https://up.kl-offshore.no/, log on.

Click on the HTML5 VPN Portal link:

Here you will get access to the computer(s) you can access by HTML5 VPN
