WatchGuard Firebox III 1000 and Nokia IP130

Currently I have a WatchGuard Firebox III 1000.  What I need to do is drop a Nokia IP130 SSL VPN appliance into my network

I know someone is probably wondering why I am adding the Nokia VPN appliance when the WatchGuard Firebox offers a VPN solution.  Well the reason is that we are in health care so I need the most secure tunneling so I choose SSL over IPsec.

What I am hoping for is someone with either direct experience or just over all skills to give me some help; insight or direction has to how to do this.

Thanks for your time

    Well i have not dealt with the IP130 directly, but the basic approach is to open up port 80 and 443 on the firewall pointing to the internal IP130 Appliance, this is where the SSL tunnel will effectivley be terminated, behind the firewall, you will then need to setup a DNS host entry, pointing to the external IP on the Watchguard that you NAT'd back to the IP130 example:

    When users connect to the SSL/VPN portal they will need to put in their browser this would give them an authentication page, once authenticated the client software is deployed, they will either get direct acces to the LAN or a landing page, dependant on product and configuration.

    As long as the users dont close the browser the VPN session will remain active.

    If your confident your users will remmeber to put in the " HTPS:// " part in when connecting you could close the port 80 keeping things tighter, the choice is yours. :)

    Its quite brief but its an overview ;)

    Any more questions please ask.
