ASA SSLVPN - Aternatives?

Posted on 2012-09-11

I have an ASA5520 with the SSLVPN license installed and I have configured the SSLVPN bookmarks and everything to go along with it. The problem is that Windows doesn't seem to like it. I've tried multiple browsers, Mozilla, Chrome, IE versions 6,7,8 but I can't seem to find a stable combination of OS and browser.

The SSLVPN doesn't load the java applet well. I can get logged in and I can choose the bookmarks but getting the RDP applet to load is a huge pain. It will either load a tiny little window that doesn't allow you to do anything or it won't load at all.

I've seen other posts that have the same type of issue but no fixes for it. Has anyone gotten the ASA SSLVPN to work 100% of the time? If not does anyone have a recommendation for an alternative to this?

    unfortunately I have as well gone through the problems you're coping with, and although i really like cisco asa firewalls, I had to propose an alternative to customers who were mostly interested in SSL VPN, as the one from cisco sometimes sucks.
    You may want to consider Juniper appliances:

    I've had positive feedback from my customers.

    hope this helps
