Juniper IVE Virtual Hostname Configuration Guide


Use this guide to configure a Juniper IVE VPN Virtual Hostname.

Juniper IVE has the ability to provide the Network Address Translation in the form of a proxy service from the Internet to the private network. A new public name can be configured as a Virtual Hostname, which will allow Juniper IVE to forward traffic sent from the Internet to a public hostname, and then to a host that would normally be unavailable from the Internet.

Additionally, Juniper IVE will provide the SSL service for SecureAuth IdP, which is very convenient when a wildcard SSL certificate is installed on Juniper IVE. This also creates the possibility of passing traffic from Juniper IVE to SecureAuth IdP in either HTTP or HTTPS. Some organizations use advanced inspection tools and techniques, and prefer that the traffic on the private network to be unencrypted, which can be accomplished this way.
