In Use - Proxy Mode

Log out of the 200 (doing so will close your browser window, which I found annoying) and log back in using the user account. If all goes well, you are presented with the "Virtual Office" landing page (Figure 7). Virtual Office is a portal that users access in order to create and access bookmarks, file shares and NetExtender sessions.

Both the login and Virtual Office landing pages can be customized with an uploaded logo and text of your choice. You can also control what appears on the Virtual Office landing page including the File Share proxy, bookmarks and even the Net Extender link.

Most proxy services are accessed via "Bookmarks" that have been created by admins or that users can create themselves (or not, depending on the Policies that have been created). The "putti" bookmark seen in Figure 7 consists of the IP address of one of my LAN's systems and the File Share (SMB/CIFS) service proxy. Clicking it opens the screen shown in Figure 8 that shows all of the shares on that machine.

If you want to see a better example of what you can do with bookmarks, check out Sonicwall's SSL-VPN demo site (Figure 9). Be patient because some of the bookmarks take some time to load. I had better luck with the demo site using IE than with Firefox, which seemed to hang on many bookmarks. Also note that the Citrix option isn't available on the 200.
