The SA540 Security Appliance features Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunneling. An SSL VPN can be used directly within a web browser without the need for additional software. Because SSL VPNs can be used directly within a web browser, they are considered easy to configure on client devices as compared to other forms of VPN tunnels. The SA540 Security Appliance keeps an active log of all users connected to the network through a SSL VPN. This feature gives network administrators the ability to view who is connected to the SSL VPN tunnel at any given time. This document shows how to view currently logged in SSL VPN users on SA540 Security Appliances.

Applicable Device

• SA540 Security Appliance

Software Version


Status of Active Users

Step 1. Log in to the Security Appliance Configuration Utility and choose Status > Active Users. The Active Users page opens: 

Note: Directly below the Active Users heading, the device displays the current time in the Current Time field. For more information on time settings, please see article: Time Settings on SA540 Security Appliance.

The Active Users table displays the following information:

• User Name — Indicates a unique identifier for each active user logged on to the device.

• Group — Indicates the group to which a logged in user belongs to. Only users that have been configured in the SSLVPN group can access the VPN.

• IP address — Indicates the IP address of a user. The IP address listed in this field is the local IP address that has been assigned to the client. An IP address is a 128-bit logical label identifier assigned to devices to help direct network traffic.

• Login Time — Indicates the day, year, date, and the time the user first logged into the security appliance.

Step 2. (Optional) To disconnect the session of an Active User, and any SSVPN tunnels associated with that user, click the Disconnect button next to the respective user.
