SonicWALL's NetExtender allows clients to access company resources such as email, files, applications and intranet through a "thin" client, which doesn't require pre-installation at each workstation. The installation procedure takes place through the Internet Explorer browser and requires that you have your login information to access the company's SSL-VPN portal.

Log on to the SSL-VPN portal using Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Click the NetExtender button in the center of the screen. This will initiate the NetExtender installation process. An installation window will open, and any outdated version of NetExtender will be automatically removed and replaced with the most recent version.

Click continue if a Window's warning displays. When the installation finishes, a status window will indicate that NetExtender is connected.
