This article shows how configuring SSL VPN-Plus on an NSX Edge in vCloud Director is done.
Below you can find the specifics of my lab setup:
- Organization: vBlog.nl
- Org VDC: Org-VDC-vBlog.nl-01
- NSX Edge: Edge-Org-VDC-vBlog.nl-01
- Public IP: 5.39.172.xxx
- LAN / Local network: 192.168.100.254/24
- VPN network: 10.10.10.0/24
The steps we need to take to configure SSL VPN-Plus are:
- Configure an authentication server
- Setup the VPN server
- Define the LAN / Local network
- Configure an installation package
- Setup an IP pool to assign IP addresses to the VPN users
- Add VPN user(s)
- Configure the firewall
- Test the SSL VPN connection
Let’s start configuring the NSX Edge!
Configure an authentication server
Setup the SSL VPN server
Define the LAN / Local network
Configure an installation package
Setup an IP pool
Add VPN users
Configure the firewall
Test the SSL VPN connection
And we’re done configuring SSL VPN-Plus in vCloud Director.
Now you can browse, ping, RDP, SSH, etc. to the machines in your LAN subnet!

Great article, thanks for that. But I have a question:
What do one needs to do if he wants to allow full internet access of ssl vpn-plus clients via edge gateway?
How to configure firewall/NAT in full tunnel mode?
Is it possible to route all client traffic to internet via edge gateway?
Have you ever seen issues with accounts with expired passwords not being able to reset the password through the client. Using AD Authentication Service.
