We have an SMB 1530 cluster providing remote access via the embedded Remote Access Portal. We are using the SNX client. The cluster is running the most recent firmware for the 1530 platform.
Currently, we are unable to get any browser, except Internet Explorer, to work with this solution. No other browser will activate SNX, even if SNX and required Portal Agent are pre-installed on the PC.
At the same time, the same PC will invoke SNX from IE, Firefox, Chrome and Edge when connected to our main firewall running the R80.40 Mobile Access Blade.
I have tried everything I can think of to try to find a way to get the SMB 1530s to work with another browser, including pre-loading all the software, and installing ancient versions of Oracle Java on the PC. Nothing seems to work, yet all of these combinations work fine with the R80.40 MAB.
Has anyone else run up against this? I would be fine with telling external users they have to use IE to make the connection, but IE is slated for end of support on June 15th. M$ is even hinting that IE will be de-installed from retail versions of Windows automatically at that time.
