Cisco IOS SSL VPN supports both clientless and full-network-access SSL VPN capabilities. Clientless access uses a Web browser to connect to applications such as HTML-based intranet content, e-mail, network file shares, and Citrix. A Java-based application helper provides support for additional TCP-based applications that are not Web-enabled. Cisco IOS SSL VPN also supports the Cisco SSL VPN Client, helping enable dynamic full network access remotely to virtually any application. As part of Cisco IOS SSL VPN, Cisco Secure Desktop provides advanced endpoint security and helps prevent data such as cookies, browser history, temporary files, and downloaded content from being left behind after an SSL VPN session terminates. Cisco IOS SSL VPN deployment is simple with Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) wizards. Cisco SDM also performs real-time monitoring and management of SSL VPN sessions

Hello sir,

Thanks for that mail.It helped me in knowing more about Cisco IOS. I want to ask one question here.

my client request is HTTP Get request . when i go for SSL based stickiness, i am unsure about passing http request or do i have to change it to https? if so how can i manage using http request and still maintain stickiness.

can i also use session ID?

is session ID given by client to CSM?

how does CSM maintain the session ID?

can i only have session ID to maintain stickiness?
