Hello,

 

i would like to ask you if it is possible to connect clients which using Mac OS x platform over SRX Dynamic VPN? For Windows we use clien downloaded from https://hostname/dynamic-vpn and everything works great, but our employees using MacBook Pro laptops. 

 

Thank you for fast response :-)

Presently dynamic VPN client is not supported on MAC OSX. Check with your Juniper sales rep for roadmap for future support for JUNOS Pulse client.

This may no longer be true. Equinux has an app called VPN Tracker (paid) which works with SRX.

I suggest you use the NCP Mac client. NCP makes the Windows Juniper edition IPsec VPN clients. The NCP VPN client exists for all platforms and supports both ScreenOS and Junos platforms. You find more info here: http://www.ncp-e.com

Hi

 

According to the Juniper Pulse Download site, there are three supported platforms.

 

Junos Pulse Bulk 32 Bit Installer MSI
Junos Pulse Bulk 64 Bit Installer MSI
Junos Pulse Mac OS X Edition

 

You may need to install the MAC client manually.  And, no I have not tried it.

I hope this helps.

I am not a Juniper expert.  I have been working a while on getting a Linux client connecting to an SRX using StrongSwan as the remote access client.  I was able to get it working as a static point to point tunnel using a PSK.  I was told by Juniper that dynamic VPN's outside of their own client were not supported.  I have made some progress, but it seems that not many people are working on this type of setup.  I was also advised that Juniper was working on clients other than Windows to include Linux with no time frame for release of even a beta version.  You may want to try StrongSwan.
