Use the Users screen on the vCloud Director tenant portal's SSL VPN-Plus tab to add accounts for your remote users to the local authentication server for the edge gateway's SSL VPN service.

About this task

Note:

If a local authentication server is not already configured, adding a user on the Users screen automatically adds a local authentication server with default values. You can then use the edit button on the Authentication screen to view and edit the default values. For information about using the Authentication screen, see Configure an Authentication Service for SSL VPN-Plus on an Edge Gateway.
