Steps to lookup SonicWALL VPN domain name

What are the steps to lookup the SonicWALL VPN domain name?

This "domain name" can be different than the Active Directory domain name and needs to be entered within the SonicWALL NetExtender VPN connector. Where within the SonicWALL configuration settings can I look up the "domain name"?

If your authentication is tied to AD, then the domain name would be whatever your name name is for AD.

if this is for the firewall, you set the domain name on the SSL VPN server settings.

if this is an SMA, this is dependent on the domain name you set for your domain.

Instead of NetExtender, you can also acquire SonicWall Mobile Connect from the Windows App Store. This one will auto acquire the domains.

OK, in this case, I need to use SonicWALL NetExtender.

The "domain name" isn't tied to Active Directory in this configuration and I can't remember where to go to look up the "domain name" within the SonicWALL configuration.

Where exactly do I need to go to look this up?

if this is for the NGFW (Firewall)
Pre Sonic OS 6.5  SSL VPN > Server Settings
Sonic OS 6.5 +      Manage TAB > Connectivirty > SSL VPN > Server Settings
this is by default set to LocalDomain

if this is for SMA
Portals > Domains
also by default LocalDomain

There's two types of VPN's on the sonicwall for clients.... one uses SSL VPN  (Sonicwall NetExtender), the other uses WAN Group VPN (Sonicwall Global VPN Client)

The sonicwall global vpn client only needs IP Address and "key"... for most setups.

If you are using SSL VPN then J Spoor above has it right.   The default is LocalDomain but it can be whatever the admin chooses it to be.

@Ron Malmstead,

the question was about NetExtender, hence SSL VPN :)

but indeed  GVC (IPSec Client) does not require a domain name input (unless you are using multiple ADs and Authentication Partitioning, then it requires user@domain format)

I only mentioned it because when I first got a sonicwall ...I myself was confused and using the wrong client for the setup.
