SDL with location awareness

Jump to solution

Hello Everyone,

 

I am working on a specific requirement with Endpoint security VPN E80.92 clients. I read the admin guide in order to enable SDL and location awareness (Global properties>Endpoint connect). It contains a group with our internal IP addresses.

 

SDL is enabled on the client. Now when these users connect over an external network the SDL pops up which is good. But when the user comes into office, we have configured the parameter to not come up, but it doesn't work.

I added below parameter on the Security gateway trac client ttm file, but it still doesn't work.

:ignore_sdl_in_encdomain (
:gateway (
:map (
:false (false)
:true (true)
)
:default (true)

Unless I have mistaken on the syntax or procedure, the above statement should be good. In addition to that, when I look at the trac.defaults file of the client, ignore_sdl_in_encdomain is infact set to true.

ignore_sdl_in_encdomain STRING true GW_USER 0

 

While reviewing the logs from the endpoint, I see a weird behavior but unable to conclude what component is possibly causing the issue.

I have masked the IP address, but the IP seen here is part of the location awareness Internal IP group.

Not sure if I am missing some basic stuff here.

Hi,

 

From first look at the logs you added it seems that on the 1st one the SDL should not pop.

Is that indeed the case or it pops in bots logs?

As for the 2nd logs, we have added a fix to the same flow (Network is UNKNOWN), this fix is part of our next release E81.00 that should be GA-ed during May.

 

Thanks,

Might be worth a TAC case.

Hi,

Yes the SDL still pops up during the Windows logon within an internal network.

I will probably reach out to TAC as well to if there's anything they can point me too.
Is there a way to get an EA for E81 to see if that fixes any of the problems I am going through?

Hi,

 

Sorry for the delay.

Unfortunately we do not have public EAs since we move to monthly releases. 

The current ETA for E81.0 is during May.

This indeed fixed the issue 🙂 after installing E81.00. This issue needs to go into an SK if it's not there already
