The corporate office is running a Juniper firewall that can support VPN connections. What VPN client options are available? This article provides guidance on connecting NetScreen-Remote or other non-Juniper clients (see list below) to the Firewall device. 

There are many VPN client solutions:


  • IPSec over L2TP

  • PPTP

  • VPN clients from 3rd party vendors such as:

    • Macintosh

    • Freeswan

    • Cisco

    • Checkpoint

Step two Are you using the latest version of NetScreen-Remote? For assistance, consult: KB6161 - Determining the Current Version of NetScreen-Remote

  • Yes - Continue with Step 3
  • No  - in most cases, it is recommended to run the latest version of NetScreen-Remote Client. Please consult the Release Notes for the latest version to determine if an upgrade is possible.   For information on how to upgrade, consult the VPN Client Installation Guide

Step three Does the OS support the version of NetScreen-Remote?

Step four  Is this an Initial configuration?

Step five Will you be using certificate authentication?

            Applications such as Microsoft Outlook and/or Windows File Sharing / Mapped drives will require authentication
