The VMware Tunnel PAC Utility allows you to use PAC files to configure outbound proxies for the Per-App Tunnel component.

The PAC utility is packed with the VMware Tunnel installer bundle available on AirWatch Resources. Install the PAC utility on any Linux server such as your VMware Tunnel server. Installation requires extracting the PAC utility and running the install script.

The PAC Utility only supports Linux servers currently.

The PAC utility does not support the following rules:

  • Nested if statements

    Try to put the inner logic above the outer logic. This change makes the outer logic lower ranked than the inner logic.

  • Else-if statements

    Try to convert these rules to if statements.

  • Regex
  • myapaddress()
  • generic use of the AND operator

The PAC utility also supports only limited use of variable declaration and use.

Important:

If the PAC file contains DNS resolution rules such as dnsresolve() or isInNet(), change the value of traffic_rule_post_dns in server.conf to 1 on your VMware Tunnel server.
