4.3. Can I Connect Over a Virtual Private Network?

You can use Oracle Virtual Desktop Client to connect to a server over a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN is typically used to provide secure access to a company network to people from outside the network, such as employees working from home. See your administrator if you need help to configure your computer for connecting over a VPN.

To use Oracle Virtual Desktop Client over a VPN, you must turn on the VPN Mode setting on the Add Server screen when you configure connections to the server.

When you are connected to a VPN, an icon is displayed in the iPad status bar.

If you are experiencing problems when using a VPN, you might want to decrease the MTU setting to allow space for Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) headers. See Table 3.1, “Connection Settings for Servers”.

Contact your administrator for advice on the correct MTU setting for your network.
