Feature request VPN dial up

Feature request VPN dial up

Veeam Logoby frankive » Mon May 04, 2015 7:41 am

As long as not Cloud Connect is an option I would like the backup software to automatically dial up a predefined vpn-connection which makes it possible to upload to a B&R repository without hte users intervention as long as the client is connected through WI-Fi.

Hello Frank,
I am not sure I got this – you want Endpoint to start a connection over VNP once the backup is initiated?

Frank,

Sounds like a good idea. But what do you prefer, that you can "script" it with some sort of pre-script or literally something in the UI where you can choose the VPN to be started

Let us know

First of all, if Cloud Connect is coming for VEB we don't need the VPN (but perhaps a good thing for Enterprises anyway which are not using Cloud Connect but their internal repositories..)

i think from a user perspective it would be cool if the user could pick the VPN-connections that is already avaiable in Windows.
I can see the security issue though with an automatic VPN-connection. If a laptop is stolen and the password is "saved", which I guess it has to be if it should work out of the box with vpn, there must be some clever implementatin from Veeams side.

Frank,

Thanks for the feedback! I understand your concerns, but for example, I have 5 different VPN's configured to different locations so I would need to "choose". And yes, I am sure we can think about some smart implementations :-)
