Connecting to a Sonicwall SSL VPN using Windows Without Needing the Sonicwall NetExtender Client
Here’s an easy way to connect to a Sonicwall SSL VPN using Windows 10 (also works in 8.1)… without needing the Sonicwall NetExtender client (which won’t install completely on Windows 10).
The example below is using porthole.envisionsuccess.net as the terminator:
- Open PowerShell as administrator
- Paste in the text below:
$xml = "
Add-VpnConnection -Name Envision -ServerAddress porthole.envisionsuccess.net -SplitTunneling $True -PluginApplicationID SonicWALL.MobileConnect_cw5n1h2txyewy -CustomConfiguration $sourceXml
- Click Connect to connect to the VPN (you’ll be prompted for your domain credentials the first time).
Here are some screenshots:
