I am specifically looking for developments surrounding Asus (Transformer) Android devices.


No, we do not have anything specifically on the Transformer device. What are you seeing for support/non-support? Any Android unit should be able to connect through for web-based only access. It is not possible to have L3 connections on non-rooted, non-Samsung devices.

 

For further information, you should follow-up with your account team.

Re: Andorid Support

Asus just released ICS (Android 4) for the original Transformer so you should be able to update it (at least in the US).

Juniper has said that Google added the L3 API into ICS, but the Pulse client still doesn't make a L3 connection with ICS on my transformer. Is the Pulse client not updated yet to take advantage of the native API in ICS?

Re: Andorid Support

I have an Asus running 4.03 ICS. Pulse still doesn't work on it with regards to VPN. The API's are there in 4.0x but it appears Juniper has some work to do as well.

Re: Andorid Support

Junos Pulse 3.2 made its way into the Play Store on 2012/04/05:

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.juniper.junos.pulse.android

 

This version supports the native L3 VPN functionality on Android 4.0, although it didn't work for me (authenticated fine, but didn't actually connect after that - GN 4.0.3).

Re: Andorid Support

Updated the app yesterday and works great on my Asus Transformer at 4.0.3, it gets full L3 tunnel. Glad they got this out.

Re: Andorid Support

Yes, that is correct: You need to use the Pulse 3.2 application (just released) in order to take advantage of the ICS VPN links.

Re: Andorid Support

We have been getting the error below "Unfortunatly Junos Pulse has Stopped on a fairly frequent basis.  Most clients have experienced the issue and all are on the current market version.  The issues has gotten worse since enabling the pulse security portal on the devices.  I get about 4-5 crashes a day.  The devices I know have the issue are divers.  One VZW GNEX running 4.0.2.  One HTC Thunderbolt run 2.3, and one HTC Incredible 2 runnig 2.3.  All devices are factory firmware.  The Gnex is encrypted but the other two are not.

Re: Andorid Support

Doesn't work for me. ICS 4.04 on a moto xoom2 and as soon as I hit connect I get "file error – PleaseWait-mobile-webkit.thtml: not found"

 

Supposedly this is fixed in Pulse client 3.2 per KB but that is what I am running and no go.

Re: Andorid Support

PleaseWait-mobile-webkit.thtml is part of the custom sign in pages on the appliance. If you are using Custom Sign-In pages and have not updated them after an upgrade you may find it missing. Not sure which release it was add in but I got this error (admittedly on an iPad) when I started testing after upgrading from 6.5 to 7.1. Updating the pages based on the new template solved issue

Re: Andorid Support

I have no problem to establish a Connection with the Asus Transformer Pad on ICS.

But its not working when I try to use a client-certificate - I can see "NoCert" in the logfiles of the IVE but I did everything that is mentioned here:

http://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB19692&cat=ssl_vpn&actp=LIST&smlogin=true

 

2 more questions:

-Why does the app need so many rights?

-What does Full L3 Tunnel mean in this case? Whats the difference? Do you mean an IPsec-Tunnel instead of just SSL?
