Re: wouldn't touch it with a 3 meter pole
Thanks for the feedback, datamechanic.

Does anyone have similar Linux experiences to share, or experience using this with PCs? Likewise, anyone using this with smartphones/tablets -- and is the UI good, or does it need work?

wouldn't touch it with a 3 meter pole
Juniper's "SSL VPN" is a usability disaster.  Only works out of the box on one particular combination of versions of Java, MS-Windows, and MS-IE.  I got our compiler guy to figure out how to run the executable on Linux, but then I needed a different Java version for some other application on that host, and that was the end of my Juniper-on-Linux kludge.  I gave up on it and got the company to issue me an Aruba remote access point instead.  If the same folks develop the mobile version, expect the same problems.  Fix your bugs, Juniper, don't argue with me about keeping some long-obsolete Java version around.

Examples?
Are there examples of companies using this tech, even on a pilot basis?
