When users log on using ssl vpn, they may want to access a device that is not one that is bookmarked. I give them access to http/s to the application... They are able to connect, but it does on the same window... I would like them to go to a new window, so that they do not lose there SSL Connection...

this link creation method opens the URL in a new window or tab:

<a href="https://newapplicationURL" target="newtab">Click for application XYZ</a>

the target keyword directs the browser to open a new document. The decision on whether it will be a new window or a new tab depends on the browser setup.

I don't think I'm understanding the requirement. Isn't poping up a url in a new window the same as opening another browser window and going to the link there?  What device url bar are you talking about?

Are the users using their own computers/laptops? Are they in an internet cafe?  the SSL VPN doesn't just encrypt the browser window it's loaded from. Most SSL VPN's will encrypt whatever traffic that goes from the computer to the network that the VPN is on. It ignores the other traffic.
