How I tested

SAN FRANCISCO (10/24/2003) - I tested each of the SSL VPN appliances by first integrating them into my test LAN using appropriate IP addressing. I used a D-Link 10/100/1000 switch to connect into the LAN, and an Allied Telesyn 10/100 switch for public side. For each appliance, I used a Windows 2000 Server running Active Directory, IIS 5.0, Exchange 2000, Outlook Web Access, and a custom, home-grown ASPX application as the host application server and Web-based applications.

After defining policies for each application, I tested each application from multiple locations over both local and remote LANs using thick- and thin-client access. I changed policy definitions to verify each settings impact provided the expected result. I also created SSL VPN tunnels to each appliance to make sure they functioned as expected.
