WebVPN Customizations


I am working with a ASA with a WebVPN configuration. I have a couple of questions.

1. We have a .htm file that references a web based application on another webserver. How can I embed that file to the web vpn so that I can have webvpn users execute that file?

2. I am working with a web based application and I would like to auto complete and execute the sign in for the web page. The sign in form would be completed by a combination of the webvpn credentials and static parameters. My question is, how can I go about getting those parameters. I have done this for Outlook web access, sharepoint, and other simple web apps. But, now I need a few more parameters to feed to the login page. Should I be able to view these in the source through the web browser? Or many I need some kind of http debugging tool? I dont' have access to the web server, so I can't look at the actual web page on the server.

(#1 and #2 are kind of two different approaches to the same problem).

Re: WebVPN Customizations

Hey Ben,

I am not sure if there is a way to embed the application itself, but you configure portforwarding which would allow users who have a WebvPN session going, to access certain software.

For more information on application access you could try the following link:

Regarding your second request, it looks like you want to configre single sign-on. The following will provide more information on SSO:

Let me know if this isn't what you're looking for.

Re: WebVPN Customizations

Hi Benjamin,

I am not sure what you mean by "embed" ? You can just create a bookmark for the HTM file, which should be hosted on another server. And post the bookmark to the Portal page.

As for second question, I believe you are looking at HTTP POST for SSO. You might have to use a HTTP capture program like 'HTTPWatch' to get the details on which fields are needed to be used during the POST request.

You can then follow the below link to configure HTTP POST on ASA
