What is Clavister OneConnect?

Clavister OneConnect provides users full network-level access to corporate resources over encrypted SSL VPN connections. The OneConnect client provides anytime, anywhere access to critical applications such as email, virtual desktop sessions and other applications protected by a NetWall Firewall. Combined with Clavister OneTouch, it also offers a simple way to use two factor authentication (2FA).

Requirements

The Clavister OneConnect client is a free app and is intended to connect to a Clavister NetWall Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) running Clavister cOS Core 13.00.09 or later in order to function properly.

Installing the Clavister OneConnect Client

The OneConnect Version 3 client can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or from the Microsoft Store.

What is a deep link?

A deep link is a URI that can be used to start and send information to an application using a link, read more by heading to Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_deep_linking.

Using a deep link with Clavister OneConnect

The URI registered for OneConnect is oneconnect://, this one can be used to invoke OneConnect from other applications or web pages.

Currently the option supported by the deep link is to add a profile to the system using the configuration directive.

The following options are supported:

Example URI: oneconnect://configuration?desc=VPN%20Profile%20Name&server=myvpn.fqdn.tld&port=nnn”

This URI can then be embedded into any web page using a simple href= html tag.

Example

<a href="oneconnect://configuration?desc=Clavister%20Demo%20Profile&server=sg.demo.clavister.com&port=443">Add VPN Profile!</a>
