Access Gateway VPX 5.0 is a virtual appliance for Citrix XenServer or VMWare ESX/ESXi that provides secure access to virtual desktops, applications and data while allowing users to work from anywhere. It offers the same capabilities as an Access Gateway physical appliance (Model 2010) while giving greater flexibility and more deployment options to IT administrators. Access Gateway VPX is the best choice for organizations who need to rapidly provision secure access, reduce infrastructure requirements, and minimize power consumption.
New Features Supported in This Maintenance Release
Access Gateway Imaging Tool
The Access Gateway imaging tool now exists as a .zip file containing all files necessary for reimaging the appliance. You download the .zip file, extract the files, and run the tool. The tool indicates the location of the USB drive. By using the .zip file, you no longer need to select an ISO file.
If you attempt to import an intermediate certificate to Access Gateway where the Subject field is longer than 128 characters, you receive the error message “Value too long for type character varying (128).”
Secure Ticket Authority
You can now configure up to 25 servers running the Secure Ticket Authority (STA).
You can now add up to 256 static routes on the Access Gateway appliance.
Upgrading Access Controller
You can now upgrade Access Controller from Version 5.0 or Version 5.0.1 to Version 5.0.2 without removing the previous version.
XenApp Services Site
You can configure Access Gateway to use a XenApp Services site, giving users access to virtual applications from their computer desktop or mobile device when they authenticate through the Web Interface.
