Netextender, can't connect
We recently acquired a TZ 570 firewall for our corporate offices (100-150 users).
Now I'm trying to setup a VPN connection between the FW and our AWS environment in order to monitor several resources. Since I kind of don't like diving into a IPSec VPN, I'm trying to use the NetExtender option, since it seems fairly simple to use. Or so I thought...
Well, I configured it as per the documentation at
but it's not working. There are several things here:
a) When I attempt to connect NetExtender, either from a Linux device or a Windows device (for the sake of checking in both worlds, just in case), I'm automatically logged out from the admin session at the firewall I have in the browser. This really puzzles and annoys me.
b) If I go to https://X.X.X.X:4433 I can log-in with the user credentials (and it asks me to download NetExtender, etc). So it's clear that, up to some point, it works... at least partially.
c) NetExtender from Windows connection log is:
d) NetExtender from Linux connection log is:
