Web application technologies
  • HTML
  • HTML5
  • HTML5-Web-Sockets
  • Javascript
  • Remote desktop protocol (RDP), VNC, or SSH
    • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Virtual Machine (VM) environments, such as Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop or VMWare Horizon and Vcenter, support access natively through HTML5. You can RDP, VNC, or SSH to these machines through Clientless VPN without requiring additional third-party middleware.
    • In environments that do not include native support for HTML5 or other web application technologies supported by Clientless VPN, you can use third-party vendors, such as HOBLink or Thinfinity, to RDP through Clientless VPN.
  • Adobe Flash—With Clientless VPN, browsers can display flash content or files like Microsoft Word documents or Adobe PDFs; however, Clientless VPN cannot rewrite HTML content links inside the content to route the links through the tunnel.
Other technologies (such as Microsoft Silverlight or XML/XSLT) are not supported.
